Noble Memorial To The Fallen.
Jul 2021 • Family
This is a beautiful memorial to 121 local men ( all names inscribed on bronze plaques on every side of the stone plinth) who lost their lives in The Great War.
It was sculpted in bronze by Kellock Brown, and unveiled on the 09/ 07/ 1922 by the Earl of Airlie.
The figure is believed to be a crouching Britannia, with a sheathed sword 🗡 in her left hand, and a small winged figure of Victory in her right - and is really quite noble, dignified and moving.
It’s in a very well-tended corner of Alyth Muir with pretty flower-beds surrounding it, and benches.
Just a short distance from this memorial is another tribute - this one to Alfred Anderson, who was the last Scottish veteran of the First World War , the last survivor of the Christmas Eve Truce of 1914 - and the oldest man in Scotland when he passed away ( 25th June 1896 to 21st November 2005)
