PERTHSHIRE ADVERTISER: 12.02.1921

ACADEMY WAR MEMORIAL

IMPRESSIVE UNVEILING CEREMONY
DUKE OF ATHOLL AND PERSONAL SACRIFICE


An impressive ceremony marked the unveiling of the Perth Academy and Sharp’s Institution War Memorial, the gift of Mr F. Norie Miller of Cleave, yesterday afternoon. There was a very large gathering of the public and pupils around the platform which had been erected in the neighbourhood of the memorial - a big handsome bronze plaque, bearing the names of the fallen and the inscription “Academiae Berthanae Olim Cives Bello Caduci Omnia Et Ipsos Pro Patria Dederunt Dulce Et Decorum Est Pro Patria Mori”.

Rector Smart presided, and amongst those present were the Duke of Atholl, who unveiled the memorial, Mr and Mrs F. Norie Miller, Lady Chapman, Mr Wm. Munro, Mr John Ritchie, Rev. W.E. Lee, Rev. J.W. Slater, Rev. Provost Smythe, Rev. J.M. Scott, Rev. J.S. MacNaughton, Baillie Cunningham, Baillie Campbell, Rev. Fergus Ferguson, Councillor Fisher, Councillor Hunter, Mr W.A. Rae, Douglasfield, Mr John Lindsay, Mr John Clark, Major Gray, Miss Caird, Dr. Stirling, Mr A.H. Anderson, Kippendavie, Mr W. Cochrane Young, Mr James Turpie, Mr R. Martin Bates, Mr A.M. Sneddon etc.

After the singing of the Second Paraphrase, and prayer by the Rev. W.E. Lee, an address was delivered by the Duke of Atholl. In the course of his speech His Grace said they were met there that day to unveil a memorial to the memory of the 162 former pupils and two members of the teaching staff of the Perth Academy and Sharp’s Institutuion who fell between the years 1914-19 in defence of honour, liberty and country. That sad, but glorious record was one which for sacrifice and service, in proportion to the number of pupils educated at Perth Academy, could have few, if any, equals, and the Roll of Honour was one of which those connected with the Academy might justly feel proud. When they added to it the fact that 79 of the pupils who served in the war received honours, either decorations or mentions in despatches, they had the right to claim that the learning of patriotism, gallantry and dedication to duty was not one of the least acquirements that the pupils of the Academy gained during their period of scholarship.

While they, no doubt, knew most of those who fell, and could mourn their loss personally, to those who were only acquainted with some of them, the names on the memorial did not convey so much as the glorious spirit they represented, that spirit of cheerful endurance under difficulties of negation of self for the common good: and the preference of death to a life of slavery and dishonour. In a generation their names would cease to have a personal meaning, but their deeds would live as long as Scotland lived and would be a precious heritage and example to those who followed after. They had left them a free country, independent of a foreign yoke, they died literally that they at home might live and enjoy the blessings of peace and prosperity, untrammelled with the haunting thought of the impending invasion of a gasping and ruthless enemy, and it was for everyone to ask his or herself what he or she was going to do to be worthy of that heritage, and to live up to the example that those that had fallen set them.


Were they, when they left there, going out into the world with a grumble because everything was not exactly as they wanted it to be, or were they going to meet all difficulties with a smile and clear mind as they did? Were they in future going to think of nothing but themselves whereas they thought of nothing but their country? Were they going to work with might and main to pull round once more into prosperity the country whose very existence they saved, or were they going to be idle and become a drag upon others leaving to them the work they ought to do. Above all, if and when the hour of danger came, were they going to be laggards trusting to others to fight their battles for them, or were their names also going to be inscribed amongst those of the heroes that Scotland had ever bred in time of need. These men who ever put their country first, and self last.

They wanted no armies with which to increase their Empire; they wanted no soldiers to make unjustifiable attacks on foreign nations, but it was surely not only their duty, but the clear privilege of every boy as he grew up, to fit himself to defend his country and his own home should necessity arise. Take the word of an old soldier who had an opportunity of discussing the question with some of the greatest soldiers of their own day - the necessity to what he alluded never would arise if the men of this country would remember their duty, and train themselves. No one would challenge Britain if she was ready and trained to defend herself, but if she was not they should be false to the memory of those who fell, and once more, perhaps in their own lifetime, they should be plunged into the horrors of war.

For the next few years they would go through very difficult times in this country - times which would call for all the self-restraint, patience, personal sacrifice that they had at their command, and above all for loyalty to the King and Constitution, whatever the temptation, whatever the danger and discomfort to themselves let them not hesitate to stand out boldly to defend the right against the wrong, the weak against the strong, just as those men did in honour of whom he was about to unveil that memorial, saying “To the glory of God, and to the memory of those men whose names are mentioned on this tablet, I now unveil this memorial”. His Grace then pulled aside the Union Jack which veiled the tablet.

Rector Smart thereafter recited the names on the Roll of Honour as follows:-

THE RIGHTEOUS SHALL BE HELD IN EVERLASTING REMEMBRANCE

After the names had been read Mr Norie Miller formerly handed over the tablet to the custody of the school and the School Management Committee. Some of them, he said, would recall how in the early days of the war they had the usual prize giving in the City Hall to the pupils of that great school. On that occasion they should remember that there were some twenty of the boys, who at that time were of age to go and fight for their country. They would recall also how upon that occasion as they stood on the platform in a bunch they unfurled their Union Jack and what enthusiasm they raised in the Hall - these brave boys - as they all sprung forward to their duty and fight for their country and for them. They went and they fought and some of them died for their country, and their names were on that tablet. It was an inspiring sight then, and it must be so that day, when they saw His Grace, the Lord Lieutenant of the county unveil that memorial to the bravery of those who had gone before them as pupils of that school. They in the pride of their youth and strength left their homes and dear ones to do their duty and they did it well, and it was a proud thing for those parents there that day who had lost their sons, it assuaged their grief, to know that those brave boys went forward as they did. They loved them all, and they know they were with them that day. He asked them to accept that memorial.

Rector Smart said it was with a feeling of gratitude that as Rector of Perth Academy he accepted custody of that beautiful memorial tablet. They were proud to remember those former pupils of theirs who had fought in the Great War, and were proud of the splendid example they had bequeathed to them of loyal service and faithful performance of duty. It was, he thought, peculiarly fitting that the memorial should have been gifted to them by one who had been so long and so closely associated with the school. The connection of Mr Norie Miller with the school extended over a quarter of a century.

Mr Wm. Munro accepted the tablet on behalf of the School Management Committee. The old buildings of the Academy, he said, had witnessed many things, but they had never witnessed such an appropriate and touching ceremony as they had that day. In the past they had always had an abiding interest for these old buildings, but that day they regarded them with even greater affection. Those glorious boys whose names were carved on that beautiful tablet once throbbed and pulsated with life. They were not yet silent, and would continue to speak to them of great and abiding things. They would regard that generous gift as a sacred trust.

The Rev. J.W. Slater offered prayer, and the ceremony concluded by the singing of the Doxology and the Benediction by the Rev. Provost Smythe.

Mr F. Midgley, singing master at the Academy, led in the musical part of the ceremony, and the tablet was executed to a design by Mr Scott Murray, art teacher.

A number of wreaths were placed at the foot of the memorial, one by Mr and Mrs Norie Miller, one by Sir Samuel and Lady Chapman, one of the pupils of the Academy, another by the staff and two others from private mourners.

Adam,

They did indeed, in the Academy magazine 'They Young Barbarian'. I picked up on them as they were listed through the years 1915 - 1919.

MILNE, MABEL L. Sister. Nursing Service (T.F.) Died in Hospital, France, on 2nd October, 1917, from multiple wounds from enemy aircraft.

From the War Dairy of 58th (Scottish) General Hospital, St Omer

1/10/17 During a hostile air raid on the night of 30/9/17 - 1/10/17, three bombs were dropped in the camp at 10.40 pm, ( 2 on Marquees for patients and 1 in the nurses compound). Of the 2 bombs which dropped on the marquees, 1 struck a marquee which was, fortunately unoccupied, the other struck a marquee occupied by patients and 2 nurses, who were on duty. The bomb which fell in the nurses compound struck a bell tent, which was unoccupied as the 2 nurses who sleep in the tent were on night duty. The casualties which have resulted are :- Nurses killed 3, wounded 3 ( 1 dangerously). Other ranks :- killed 16, wounded 60. Total killed 19, wounded 63. Of the other ranks wounded, 14 were transferred to other hospitals and one of these has since died. There has been much damage to canvas and equipment. 54 marquees (hospital, large) have been damaged (2 have been absolutely demolished, while the damage to the others varies from almost complete destruction to mere riddling). 21 bell tents have been damaged ( 1 was completely destroyed by a bomb and 20 have been riddled). Many pieces of iron pierced the new corrugated iron sleeping hut for sisters. 1 piece pierced iron and 3 pieces of asbestos boarding. Numerous panes of glass have been broken in the permanent buildings. One of the ablution houses has been damaged.

Surgeon General MacPherson, the ADMS and the Matron in Chief called today and it was arranged for the transfer of all lying cases to other hospitals so that at night the walking cases left in hospital might go to the cave in the public garden and sleep there. In the evening patients and unit moved to the cave in the public garden and only the police and a few orderlies were left in the camp. The 3 wounded nurses were transferred today to No 10 Stationary Hospital.

2/10/17 The 3 nurses (Sister Climie, Nurse Thompson and Nurse Coles) and the 16 other ranks killed by hostile aircraft on the night of 30/9/17-1/10/17 were buried today at 4:00 pm in the Souvenir Cemetery Longuenesse. Sister Milne, who was dangerously injured in the same air-raid died last night in No 10 Stationary Hospital. 2 other ranks who were wounded have died today, so that the statistics as a result of the raid are, to date :- Dead, nurses 4, other ranks 18. Wounded :- nurses 2, other ranks 58. Totals Dead 22, Wounded 60.

Staff Nurse Agnes Murdoch Climie was from Newlands, Glasgow.
VAD Daisy Kathleen Mary Coles was from Peebles/Edinburgh.
VAD Bessie Thomson was from Creetown, Kirkcudbrightshire.
