Now situated in the grounds of Balhousie Castle.
The Memorial Home was previously in Broughty Ferry.

I can't help with this unfortunately.

On another note I seem to remember reading through an old newspaper - People's Journal I think. It listed gifts and donations from family and friends for the home ranging from beds to medical equipment in memory of a fallen soldiers. I suppose this would consitute dozens of individual 'war memorials'.

It looks very plush, i wonder why they shut it down? Money is the obvious answer i suppose.
