PERTHSHIRE ADVERTISER: 06.04.1921

GLENFARG
UNVEILING OF WAR MEMORIAL


The memorial cairn erected by the parishioners in memory of the 22 young men who left the parish of Arngask never to return was unveiled by Mrs Kirkland of Fordel before a large crowd on Saturday afternoon. Proceedings were opened by the Rev. J. W. Jack, M.A., J.P., giving out the Second Paraphrase. The singing was led by the school children, conducted by Major Bonar, O.B.E., headmaster. The Dedicatory prayer was fervently offered by the Rev. Dr Moncreiffe, D.D., followed by remarks by Mr J. B. Stephenson, chairman of the War Memorial Committee.

On behalf of Mrs Kirkland, Mr N. J. Nasmyth, Glenfarg House, gave a stirring speech on the sacrifice and splendid example of those young men who had sacrificed their lives, so that those dear to them at home might be safe from the brutal barbary of the Germans. Mrs Kirkland then drew the chord releasing the Union Jack revealing the bronze plate, on which are inscribed the names of the fallen heroes. Mrs Kirkland Vesey, secretary of the War Memorial Committee, read the roll as follows:-

ROBERT BETT, BLACK WATCH; HARRY BLACK, BLACK WATCH; JAMES DAVIDSON, BLACK WATCH; WILLIAM DAVIDSON, BLACK WATCH; WILLIAM DOWNS, BLACK WATCH, JAMES HEGGIE, BLACK WATCH; DAVID REEKIE, BLACK WATCH; ARTHUR ROBERTSON, BLACK WATCH, DAVID ROBERTSO, BLACK WATCH; WILLIAM ROBERTSON, CAMERON HIGHLANDERS; ARCHIBALD LAURENCE SYMINGTON, GLASGOW HIGHLANDERS; JOHN BROWN, M.C., SEAFORTH HIGHLANDERS; THOS. BURNS, H.L.I.; GEORGE BOYD M’ARTHUR, LIFE GUARDS; DAVID BURNS, SCOTS GUARDS; WILLIAM AULD, CANADIANS; JAMES SMART, CANADIANS; JOHN SOUTTER, CANADIANS; DAVID BROUGH M.M., R.F.A.; JAMES SHEARLAW, R.E.; WALLACE MACFARLANE, R.A.M.C.; SAMUEL MCKENZIE, R.A.S.C.

The bugler thereupon sounded the “last Post”. The 66th Paraphrase was sung by the company, followed by the laying of a large number of beautiful wreaths on the memorial by relatives and friends. “Lochaber No More” on the pipes, followed by the Benediction invoked by Rev. Mr Jack, concluded a most impressive and emotional ceremony.

A considerable number of ex-servicemen, under the command of Major Bonar, took part in the proceedings. Mrs Kirkland Vesey, representing the committee, handed over the memorial to the custody of the Parish Council, represented by Mr Stephenson. The proceedings concluded with the singing of “God save the King”.
