  • THE STRATHEARN HERALD: 15.07.1916 PERTH OFFICER'S DEATH - CAPT. ROWLAND FRASER, INVERMAY It was with much regret that Perth people learned of the death in action of Captain Rowland Fraser, Rifle Brigade, third son of Mr John M. Fraser, of Invermay, Forteviot, head of the firm of Messrs Macdonald, Fraser & Co., stock salesmen, Perth. Only a few weeks ago he obtained a short leave from the front, and was married at Invermay on 20th June to Miss Mary Dorothy, second daughter of Mr T. H. Ross, Quirindi, New South Wales. Captain Fraser returned to France soon after, and fell in action on Sunday, the 2nd inst., exactly twelve days after his marriage. He had a distiguished record at school, college, and university. Born at Perth about 26 years ago, he attended the Academy, and afterwards went to Merchiston College, Edinburgh, and subsequently to Cambridge University. He was an M.A. of Cambridge University, and in civil life a member of the legal profession, and was in the offices of Messrs Guild & Guild, W.S., Edinburgh. He joined the Army shortly after the outbreak of war, and had been on active service for about eighteen months. Other two brothers are also serving with the Colours. In football and cricketing circles the deceased officer was well-known. He was at one time captain of the Merchiston Castle cricket eleven, and also played for the Grange and Perthshire. He was captain of the Cambridge Rugby team, and was a Scottish internationalist. His brother, Mr W. Lovat Fraser, is the captain of the Perthshire Cricket Club.
  • WAR MEMORIALS UNVEILED IN FORTEVIOT CHURCH. Brigadier-General the Rev. Dr M'Clymont, convener of the Chaplains Committee of the Church of Scotland, unveiled a series of memorials in Forteviot Parish Church to members of the congregation who fell in the recent war. A special tablet was erected to the memory of the Rev. James Kirk, who died of wounds, and who, prior to his appointment as chaplain of the 2d Batt. the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders was parish minister at Dunbar, and for a period occupied a similar position at Forteviot. Mr and Mrs J. M. Fraser of Invermay, in remembrance of their youngest son, Captain Rowland Fraser, of the Rifle Brigade, who was killed on the Somme in 1916, gifted an oak pulpit, while the congregation and children of the Sunday school contributed towards a mural tablet containing a roll of honour. Evening Telegraph, Tuesday 10 February 1920
