  • PERTHSHIRE ADVERTISER: 30.10.1920 KILLIN UNVEILING OF WAR MEMORIAL The war memorial erected by the people of Killin and district to commemorate the local men who fell in the Great War, was unveiled on Wednesday by the Marquis of Breadalbane. At two o'clock the procession was drawn up at the Public Hall and proceeded in the following order:- Band from Perth Depot playing laments; schoolchildren attending Killin and Glendochart Public Schools; ex-Servicemen, and lastly the general public. The ceremony began with a short religious service, conducted by Rev. D M'Gregor and Rev. G.W. Mackay. Mr John M'Diarmid, Ardclach, chairman of the Parish Council, then introduced the Marquis of Breadalbane, who proceeded to unveil the memorial. The Marquis, in the course of his remarks, thanked the committee for the honour conferred on him and paid an eloquent tribute to the patriotism of the district. He referred to his own connection with the old 5th V.B.R.H., and the Volunteers from the district to other wars, instancing the Boer War. He dwelt on the sacrifices made by the district, and expressed his approval of the scheme of local memorials in each district for its own men. The Marquis then unveiled the memorial, and read the names of twenty-eight men whose names are inscribed on the panels of the monument. These are as follows:- Captain H.J. Knight, Pipe-Major D. M'Leod, Pte. H. M'Intyre, Pte. J. M'Gibbon, Pte. C. M'Lean, Pte. D. M'Nee, Pte. R. M'Pherson, Cpl. R. Stewart, Pte. P.J. M'Diarmid, Pte. J. M'Farlane, Pte. H. M'Lellan, Pte. J. M'Naughton, Pte. J. Orr, Sergt. A. Neill, Pte. P. M'Dougall, Pte. H. M'Pherson, Pte. D. Stewart, Pte. J. Ferguson, Lieut. C. M'Alpine, A.B. A. Stewart, Sapper R. M'Kerchar, Pte. D. Marquis, Pte. D. M'Naughton, Pte. R. M'Lauchlan, Pte. J. Campbell, L-Sergt. P. Walker, Pte. P M'Naughton. The anthem 'Departed Heroes' was then rendered by the local church choirs, under the conductorship of Mr J.R. Gentle. A piper then played a lament, and a bugler sounded the 'Last Post'. Wreaths were then layed at the foot of the monument. Mr J.D. M'Rae then proposed a vote of thanks to the Marquis for his kindness in granting the site for the memorial, and for the interest he had shown in the district, and in particular for his coming that day to perform the duty he had so felicitously performed. Dr. Wilson moved a vote of thanks to the architect and the sculptor for their share in the memorial. Mr John Stewart, Morenish, in name of the committee and subscribers then proposed that the Parish Council accept the custody of the memorial, and Mr John M'Diarmid, as chairman of that body, accepted custody of it. The Rev. G.W. Mackay then dedicated the memorial, and following that came the 2nd Paraphrase, sung by the choirs. Then followed the benediction, pronounced by the Rev. D. M'Gregor, and an impressive ceremony was concluded by the singing of the National Anthem. The memorial consists of a very finely sculpted figure of a Highlander in full fighting kit, erected on a substantially built base. The committee, the architect, and the sculptor are all to be congratulated on the way they have helped the district to raise a monument, both handsome and appropriate, in memory of the brave men from their midst who made the supreme sacrifice.
