These two brass plaques, identical in style, are located in the rear stairwell of Perth's North Church. I do not know if they have come from one particular church, or two. I had a quick look a some names but addresses don't tie them to a particular spot. They may require identification from an old newspaper article;

I would say that these 2 plaques are a single memorial because the names are listed by regiment and there is no duplication of regiments betweent the plaques. But where they came from?

A Free Kirk memorial moved to the Established Kirk after 1929??

It may be the Free Kirk building is the one in use today.

Thanks to dilligent research by Hugh Macrae it has been determined that these brass plaques were originally raised in memory of the men from St. Leonard's Parish Church, Perth.
