MEMORIAL UNVEILED IN DUNDEE.
IMPRESSIVE SERVICE IN ROSEBANK CHURCH.
Two memorial stained-glass windows were unveiled in Rosebank Parish Church, Dundee, yesterday - one in memory of Rev. Dr D. B. Cameron, who was for many years minister of the parish, and the other to perpetuate the gallantry of those belonging to the congregation who gave their lives in the great war.
Placed in the centre of the east wall of the church, the windows are of a very chaste design. The figure of St John the Baptist, is delineated in the minister's memorial, and a militant figure, St Michael, with sword in hand, is portrayed on the other. Below each window is a brass plate appropriately inscribed, and the following names of the men who fell are recorded, viz.:-
Second-Lieut. John Dawson, Second-Lieut. Peter W. Thomson, Lance-Corpl. Norman Robertson, Second A.M. Robert J. Bain, Pte. Edward Clark, Pte. David Clark, Pte. John R. Kennedy, Pte. John Kinnear, Pte. John Laing, Guardsman D. J. M'Mahon, Gunner Hugh Petrie, Pte. Wm. Soutar, Guardsman Jas. Wilkie, and Pte. John Young.
“They died for us" is inscribed below the names.
An Able Minister.
There was large attendance at the memorial service, the front seats being occupied by members and adherents who had served in H.M. Forces. Rev. Dr Hugh George Watt, St Enoch's Parish Church, was the preacher, and in a short address, prior to the unveiling of the windows, he said that the late Dr Cameron was one of the ablest ministers—to his mind the ablest minister of the Church of Scotland in the city. From the present unrest in the country we will come out on a calmer sea by and by. Death could not destroy the fruits of faith. The war memorial was afterwards unveiled by Lieut.-Colonel J. B. Muir, D.S.O., 4th Black Watch, and Mrs Cameron unveiled the memorial to her late husband. A dedication prayer was offered up by Dr Watt, and Bugler Alex. Nesbit sounded the "Last Post.''
After the Dead March in "Saul" had been played Mr Wm. Brunton, the organist, Bugler Nesbit sounded the "Reveille," and the service, which had been most impressive throughout, concluded with the singing of the National Anthem.
