Apologies for the picture quality. The first Roll of Honour dedicated to a choir ?

Definitely the first to a choir I've seen.

What an unusual church building. Is that a new build in front of an existing facade?

This is a complately new church.
They also have a war memorial outside, which I posted here;

When I spoke to the folk at the church today they said there were name plaques inside the old church which have disappeared!

However when I was going through the Crieff papers some time ago I remember seing the unveiling report with ALL the names included. I didn't print it at the time but it shouldn't be too hard to find.

I see a few names of the fallen from the Crieff Memorial here, although nothing indicates the dead on the scroll itself.

The John Brocas Harris mentioned in this Honour Roll was injured at Gallipoli but survived and lived in South Australia until 1967, i think

The Honour Roll was painted by Mary Packer Harris, whose father was the organist at Crieff.
