The plaque has been removed from the now disused church and placed in the nearby WW1 Memorial Hall. Thanks to Mrs Jane Macnaughton for the photographs. UKNIWM 44136;

Two memorial stained glass windows were unveiled in Edenshead Church, Gateside in July 1919, they were donated by the parents of Captain J Flockhart Thom. One commemorated their son and the other was a roll of honour for "his comrades in arms from the village of Gateside who also made the supreme sacrifice".

The Dundee Courier reported that beneath the window was "a memorial brass given by the congregation in memory of its members and adherents who fell in the war."

The name of Lieutenant Brown of the Seaforths did not appear on the stained glass window.

I understand the former church is now a private house and it was not possible to removed the stained glass windows, but there are colour photographs of them in the lobby of Strathmiglo church.
