Situated in the village of Inchture
Map Information Location:
Grid ref: NO280288

On the face of the plinth below the cross it reads;
TO
THE MEMORY OF
THE MEN
IN THIS NEIGHBOURHOOD
WHO FELL
IN THE GREAT WAR
1914-19

The reverse reads;
THEIR
NAME LIVETH
FOR EVERMORE

On three sides of the face of the third step it says;
THANKS BE TO GOD
WHICH GIVETH US THE VICTORY
THROUGH OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST

The Great War name plates have been more recently fixed. I don't know why the names appear as they do. I thought perhaps it may be date order but this isn't the case.

This name would 'appear' to have been added more recently given the colouration.

This is the second memorial in recent days which as the names added on metal plaques.
Do you think that the Great War names were originally carved directly into the stone underneath the metalwork as it seems strange that the Second World War names are inscribed (and look badly weathered)?

Derek,
I think that is exactly the case. The names have become weather worn and there have been new plaques added.
The first time I encountered this was at Aberuthven.
I think that this will happen with many more in the near future.

Also Roberts on SNWM and the surname is "odd"

Surname PITHKEATHLY
Firstname Roberts

Date Death 25/09/1915
Decoration
Place of birth Rossie Priory Perthshire
Other 9th Bn.
SNWM roll THE BLACK WATCH (ROYAL HIGHLANDERS)

I was talking to a chap today whose name is Pitkeathly and he wanted to know if any of his relatives were on any WM.
This man appears to be the only one. I assume the man on Longforgan is the same man.

THE PEOPLE'S JOURNAL: 16.10.1915
AN INCHTURE HERO


Private Robert Pitkeathly, of the 9th Battalion Black Watch, who has been killed at the front was the youngest son of Mr Robert Pitkeathly, Knapp Lodge, Inchture. He was born and brought up on the estate of Rossie Priory, and previous to enlisting was an apprentice in the gardens at Rossie, where his father is estate mason. Quite a number of young men in the Inchture district joined the Colours at the same time as deceased. Private Pitkeathly took a keen interest in sport, and his name figured in the Roll of Honour of Millhill Sunday School. He was only 19 years of age.

I am sure that Robert Pitkeathly commemorated here, and at Longforgan, will be the same man. I think the Pitkeathly surname is particular to this neck of the woods originally. There are still a few in the Coupar Angus, Kettins, Burrelton area and prominent in local football circles. I would imagine they will be relatives of this casualty. Just reading over the report I am unaware of Millhill Sunday School's location, and would be surprised if this ROH survives.

I was really surprised to read that Baron Kinnaird "was football’s first superstar".

From http://www.scottishsporthistory.com/arthur-kinnaird-first-lord-of-football.html
Arthur Kinnaird (later Lord Kinnaird, 1847-1923)
"Described as ‘without exception, the best player of the day’, he took part in nine FA Cup Finals (a record to this day), selected Scotland’s first international team, and was President of the Football Association for 33 years..............
This was, however, no life of unburdened triumph: he lost two sons, killed in the First World War, tragedies which eventually led to the demise of the Kinnaird title before the 20th century was out."
