About the memorial: According to a Scottish War Memorials Project discussion thread (see link), the church was closed in 1990 and replaced with a residential development. The thread quotes the following reports. Here is an entry in The Scotsman of Monday, April 11th , 1921, which records the following information : ARBROATH : A Memorial window inserted in Princes Street United Free Church , Arbroath , in memory of 19 Men connected with the congregation , was yesterday forenoon unveiled by ex Provost Alexander, preses of the congregation , at a dedication service conducted by the Rev James Murray". The Eastern Forfarshire Directory and Arbroath Year book 1922 also records that on April 10th , 1921 , a beautiful memorial window symbolic of Victory and Peace , was unveiled in Princes Street UF Church, the ceremony being performed by ex Provost Alexander , one of the oldest members and office bearers in the congregation . A letter to the Arbroath Herald in 2009 souoght information about the fate of the widow but appears to have elicited no response.
