THE PERTHHSIRE ADVERTISER: 29.01.1921
IMPRESSIVE MASONIC SERVICE
UNVEILING OF NO. 3 WAR MEMORIAL


There was a very solemn service in Lodge Scoon and Perth No. 3 on Wednesday evening, when a bronze memorial plaque, in everlasting memory of the ten brethren of No. 3 who fell in the Great War, was unveiled and dedicated. Bro. John M'Leish, R.W.M., presided, and the accomodation of the Lodge Room was taxed to its utmost capacity with Master Masons.
Following upon the processional entry of the office-bearers, during which Brother E. F. Parker, the organist, played the Dead March in Saul with deep feeling and expression, the roll was called, Brothers Tom Brough, Alex. Bruce, John Edwards, James C. Henderson, Philip G. Jones, C. J. Martin, J. M. Murray, James E. Payton, J. S. Scrimgeour, and Robert H. Taylor being reported as having gone to a Higher Lodge. The Last Post was sounded.
The R.W.M., in a few beautiful sentences, constituted a Funeral Lodge, and the memorial was, after prayers and honours, unveiled and dedicated by Bro. Rev. A. Wylie Smith, Senior Grand Chaplain, and P.G.M. of Perthshire East.
In doing so, Bro. Wylie Smith said the one thing the war had given them was that new and beautiful memorial degree, which would constitute for all time the brightest jewel and the most enduring symbol in the ritual of their ceremonies. They would always be kept face to face with the resplendant fact that boys who once joined them there in reciting the creed that death had no terrors, equal to shame and disgrace, put the creed to final proof, sealed it with their blood, and left their broken bodies throughout fields of strife to become the seed of empire.
At a later stage of the proceedings an oration was delivered by Bro. the Rev. J. M'Glashan Scott, Chaplain of the Lodge, who also paid tribute to their fallen brethren.
During the service solos were rendered by Bros. W. Davidson and A. B. Lunan, whilst the organist played Mendelssohn's "O, Rest, in the Lord" and Beethoven's Funeral March.
