  • WAR MEMORIAL IS MOVED TO NEW GLENSHEE HOME Oct 6 2009 by Johnathon Menzies, Perthshire Advertiser Tuesday A WAR memorial in rural east Perthshire is to be moved to a more suitable location. The pair of plaques, listing residents of the Glenshee and Mount Blair areas who laid down their lives in both World Wars, have been lifted from the now un-used Cray Church to the kirk in Glenshee. Partly funded by a £4633 grant from the Drumderg community benefit fund – a pool of cash connected to Scottish and Southern Energy’s windfarm on the outskirts of Alyth – the project has also been bankrolled by members of the local community. And a dedication ceremony is to be held at the memorials’ new home on Sunday, October 11, at 5.45pm to give those who have relatives immortalised on the structures a chance to pay their respects. Pam Cameron, a local resident who co-ordinated the re-location alongside several others, said the new site would be a more fitting tribute to those who fought bravely for their country. She said: “Cray Church hasn’t been used for worship in years and we felt that it would be nicer to have the memorials at a place people regularly attend. “There are services in Glenshee every week and the new place is well away from the busy main road so it is a more friendly setting for anyone who wants to visit it. “It’s taken us about a year to get to this stage, we had to get planning consent which took longer than we thought it would. “There hasn’t been time to contact the relatives of the men listed on the stones directly, but those that have a family member on it will know because it only names soldiers from the Glenshee and Mount Blair area. "They'd be surprised" “The ceremony has been organised so we can say thank you to everyone who helped us along the way.” A representative from the British Legion’s Blairgowrie branch is set to attend Sunday’s ceremony, to be presided over by local minister the Rev Malcolm MacRae. "Well done to all those involved" - Dhubthaigh
