I've been trying to locate this memorial for a while and am very pleased to have found it.
The Post Office has seen several moves over many years but the memorial is in situ within the new delivery centre in Railway Road, Blairgowrie.
I am actually surprised it has survived.

Here is a link to Heather Johnson's tribute to her uncle William F. P. Brodie. I have been in touch with Heather many times previously:

Thank you. Thank you. For posting this discovery. I never knew of it's existence until today ... my first day of registering with this Project Forum.

My Uncle Willie (William Forbes Petrie Brodie) appears on the Board and I am so grateful to have come across it. It is to the credit of the Blairgowrie Post Office that they continue to have respect for their fallen colleagues by displaying it.

Many thanks Heather (Johnson)

It is a credit to the Blairgowrie Post Office. Not every organisation still honours their war dead, and some use a building move or a closure as an excuse to pack away or throw away a memorial. To see this displayed even after they have moved several times is a heartening sight.

Thanks for taking the time to post on the forum.

Kind regards

Adam

I was stuck by the unusual names here.
Incidentally the second man named is Gellatly
Surname GELLATLY
Firstname Thomas
Service Number 266620
Date Death 21/03/1918
Decoration
Place of birth Blairgowrie Perthshire
Other 6th Bn.
SNWM roll THE BLACK WATCH (ROYAL HIGHLANDERS)
Rank Pte
Theatre of death F.& F.

The brothers John and William Hill McQuattie, both of the Black Watch died only months apart in 1918
John 4/5th BW 27/5/1918, William 1/6th BW 24/3/1918.
(Am I correct that only John appears on the Bairgowrie WM?)
Only two other McQuatties are listed by CWGC
Alexander D. Fife & Forfar Yeomanry, 1/11/1915 b. Brechin
Robert, 1st BW 15/9/1914 b. Glasgow
I wonder if they were related?
