About the memorial: The Scottish War Memorials Trust discussion thread (see loink) reports as follows - "PERTHSHIRE CONSTITUTIONAL & JOURNAL: 05.11.1919 ST. JOHN’S MIDDLE CHURCH ROLL OF HONOUR The Kirk-Session and congregation of St. John’s Middle Parish Church have prepared and hung in the north vestibule of the church a beautifully designed Roll of Honour, containing the names of those connected with the congregation who fell in the Great War. The Roll of Honour, the work of Mr William Anderson, Gray Street, is most appropriate in conception and artistic in finish. There are two Rolls, measuring 18½ inches by 14½ inches, and upon each are inscribed the names of twenty-one young men of the congregation who made the supreme sacrifice. The design on each is similar, being executed in a mural decoration, treated in a conventional manner. The top is laid out in a panel of intermingled laurel and cypress leaves which are bound with a ribbon scroll bearing the words “Middle Church” and, in one case, the date of the opening of hostilities, and in the other, the date of signing of Peace; the centre of this panel is occupied by a circular plaque containing the Arms or Crest of St. John’s Church. The centre space of the Roll, on which the names are inscribed, is framed in a design based in thistle and oak leaves, which support on each side three circular plaques containing drawings of badges of various British and Colonial regiments, and through this decoration runs a ribbon effect, bearing appropriate mottos in Gaelic and Latin; the whole being finished off with a circular plaque at the bottom with a design in one Roll of the unsheathed sword intertwined with a spray of thistle, and the inscription “Our Sword is Our castle”, the other representing the sheathed sword, circled with a laurel wreath, with the word “Victory” inscribed. The colouring of the design has been effectively carried out in mild tones of blue, greens, and reds, with slight touches of gold, the badges being treated in open line drawing in black. Full lists of all who served in the war, with their record of service, is also hung in the vestibule of the church." The St. John's Middle Parish Church W.M. is still located under the pulpit in St. John's Kirk, Perth but no sign of these RoH currently on display. Perhaps removed to storage when St. John's Kirk was reconstructed to a single church as the Great War Memorial to the dead of Perth City and County. Further enquiry needed;
