  • PERTHSHIRE ADVERTISER: 26.07.1922 MOULIN PARISH WAR MEMORIAL DEDICATION CEREMONY AT PITLOCHRY FULL REPORT OF SOLEMN PROCEEDINGS On Sunday afternoon the War Memorial erected in Pitlochry Institute Park, in memory of those in the parish who fell in the Great War, was formally dedicated and unveiled. The memorial is a handsome Celtic cross of Aberdeen granite, and stands about twenty feet high. On the supporting column are inscribed the names of the fallen, while above there is the inscription ‘To the glory of God and in memory of the men of the parish who fell in the war’. At the top of the column is engraved a drawn sword, round which are inscribed the historic dates 1914-1919. The site for the memorial was generously gifted by Colonel and Mrs Butter, along with the surrounding ground. The ceremony attracted a vast assembly, but unfortunately, rain commenced to fall just after the proceedings had started, and to some extent marred them, in respect that the patter of the rain on the umbrellas prevented the voices of the speakers from carrying. Those present included a very large number of ex-servicemen, under Commander M’Lean, R.N.; Girl Guides, under the Hon. Mrs M’Lean; and Boy Scouts, under Scoutmaster J. H. Dixon. The proceedings opened with the singing of the 46th Psalm, led by combined choirs under G. M. Blyth; with bible reading by the Rev. A. J. Macnicol, B.D., U.F. Church; and the dedicatory prayer by the Rev. D. M. Donald, B.D., parish minister; followed by the 66th Paraphrase – ‘How bright these glorious spirits shine’. Thereafter Mr H. Mitchell, F.S.A., convenor of the Memorial Committee, said that, united by the bonds of a common sorrow and the ties of a common sympathy, they were met to commemorate those who went forth from that parish and village to uphold the sacred cause of freedom and who gave their lives that we might live. They were indebted to Colonel and Mrs Butter for the gift of a free site, and recently this gift had been further enhanced by their including in the site all the adjacent ground which, when laid out as ornamental ground, would make an appropriate setting for the memorial. £1150 had been raised to meet the cost, the greater part of which represented individual subscriptions, and these were duly acknowledged. One was a sum of £55 from Pitlochry Prisoners of War Committee, which was handed over by Mrs Meldrum, and the other was a sum of £100 from the Women’s Rural Institute of Pitlochry and District, being the proceeds of two concerts which had been organised by Mrs Mitchell when she was president. These two considerable sums had enabled the committee to raise the base of the memorial to the level of the street and to form the terrace, which, he thought, all would admit was a great improvement. Some further money might be necessary to complete the railing and lay out the grounds, but no doubt that would be forthcoming when the amount was ascertained. Proceeding, Mr Mitchell said that the four panels in the memorial contained the names of 81 men and one nurse. As the total number of the parish was not much over 250, the death rate showed a loss of nearly one in three, which was greatly in excess of the average, and could be explained by the circumstances – that the greater proportion of their men enlisted voluntarily before compulsory service was introduced, and so had to serve all through the war; and in the next place most of them joined the Black watch or some other Highland regiment, and all knew the Highland Division was generally to be found where the fighting was thickest. Most of them hoped and believed that the war was on so large a scale that it was bound to end in a few months, and that we should shortly welcome back their young men and their sons; but, month after month and year after year the war became more widespread and more severe, and every day added to the toll of death and suffering. Their hopes turned to anxious fears, and nightly, as they retired to rest with a dread in their hearts as to what the morning may bring, they whispered to themselves the question, “Where are you sleeping tonight, my lad – above or underground ?â€�: and often – too often – was the reply that it was under the ground their loved one was sleeping. Yes, it had been the lot of many of them to ‘lay in earth life’s glory dead’, and in their grief and bitter sorrow sought to end their souls through the invisible a letter of the after life to show till bye and bye came back to answer that. “From the ground there blossoms red Life shall endless beâ€�. It was, Mr Mitchell concluded, a matter of intense gratification to the committee that Mrs Butter had consented to unveil the memorial, which she and her husband had done so much for to make a success. Mrs Butter said:- “I feel very much honoured in being asked to unveil the memorial to those of this parish who gave their lives in the Great War. The purpose of the memorial is to perpetuate the memory of those in whose honour it has been raised, and to ensure that not only this generation, who knew them, but all future generations to come, may remember with gratitude and honour the names of those it bears and the greatness of their achievement. What greater achievement can there be in this world than to give one’s life for others? There is another purpose which one hopes this memorial will serve. It will stand here as a consistent reminder to us all of that wonderful spirit of citizenship, of comradeship, and of fellowship which was shown during the years of danger, ‘When none were for a party, When all were for the State’. If we can, by fostering and preserving that wonderful spirit, prove that the great sacrifice they made for us was not made in vain, then indeed will their memory be kept green foreverâ€�. Mrs Butter then unveiled the memorial by unfastening the cords attached to the Union jack, which fell away and revealed the names of the fallen heroes. These were read over by Capt. A. M.

ALSO STAFF NURSE MACBETH, Q.A.I.M.N.S., (R) Mr Alastair C. Sandeman of Fonab, on behalf of the subscribers, in asking the Parish Council to accept custody of the memorial, said they had got in design and workmanship a memorial of which Pitlochry might be justly proud. He would not say a memorial worthy of those gallant lads whose names were inscribed on the tablets, and he doubted if anything could be adequately be worthy of their great deeds. Those living required no monument to remember them, or the anxious times of the Great War. But it was right that the rising generations and succeeding generations should have something to remember them of the great sacrifices that were made for them. In honouring the dead, they must not forget the ex-servicemen – the best way they could honour the dead would be by looking after the living. He only hoped as they passed by that monument to their daily work or business they would silently salute those of whom it could truly be said “They loved duty more than they feared deathâ€�. He hoped it might be to each one of them an incentive to do all in their power to make that village and the countryside more and more worthy of the great sacrifices that had been made for them. Mr Charles A. Miller, J.P., Chairman, said that, on behalf of the Moulin parish Council, he had pleasure in formally accepting the custody of the very fine memorial. They would maintain and cherish the column, not only for its artistic and architectural excellence, but because it kept alive in their memories the deeds of those young men who had been victorious in battle and conquerors even in the face of death. They remembered those youths with pride and gratitude – by pride because by reason of their gallantry they added a fresh lustre to the great traditions of their race, and with gratitude because of the fate from which they had saved the. It was a consolation to them to know that the cause in which they fell had been crowned with an overwhelming victory, one of the most complete recorded in history. They had broken in pieces that empire one of whose principle objects was the downfall of the British Empire. They had trod the path of duty and of danger. To his mind, one of those valuable lessons to be drawn from the noteworthy achievements, was that those who consciously fight the everyday commonplace and uneventful battles of life in their ordinary vocations are the stuff from which heroes are made. Nor must they forget Miss Margaret A. Macbeth, who died while ministering to the sick and wounded in hospital, and so no less than the combatants, gave her life for her country. The members of the Moulin Parish Council, individually and collectively, felt the deepest sympathy for the bereaved and sorrowing kindred and friends of those whose names the memorial commemorated. They hoped their wounded spirits would be sustained, and their naturally poignant distress be tempered with pride and fortitude as they looked on that tribute to their heroic deeds. The care of the memorial would be regarded as a solemn and sacred trust, and as such it would be handed down to posterity. He concluded by expressing the indebtedness of the public to Mr Mitchell, Convenor of the Memorial Committee whose labours were embodied in the stately cross before them – a monument worthy alike of the parish and its heroes whom it commemorated. A large number of beautiful floral tributes were then reverently placed at the base of the memorial by relatives and from representative public bodies after which Pipers Robert Pirnie and Alex. MacDonald played ‘The Land O’ The Leal’, and Bugler Angus Robertson sounded the ‘Last Post’. The proceedings concluded with the Benediction pronounced by Dean Wilson.
