Within Dundee West Church of Scotland, Perth Road (actually within cafe/gallery on Roseangle)

Found completely by chance while attempting to view a photographic exhibition recording 45 Commando Group RM's last operational tour in Afghanistan. The exhibition had ended the day before my visit but staff at the gallery/cafe now occupying part of the church were kind enough to let me look at the prints in the basement, where I spotted this small plaque on what I guess is a bible cabinet.
