About the memorial: Parchment Book of Remembrance in a glazed wooden case. “A Committee was formed from the Congregation in 1946 to determine the most suitable Memorial to commemorate those members of the Church who had given their lives and those who had served in the armed forces during the Second World War. Two courses were decided upon, the first was that we should have a small but artistic Memorial placed inside the Church. This was to take the form of a parchment book with the names of those who had served, suitably inscribed, the book to be placed inside a clear casket placed on the small table, itself a memorial to one of our member’s sons who had fallen in the First world War. The Book was placed in the Church on Armistice Sunday, 9th November 1947 and it was unveiled by Brigadier J.W.H. Gow, Commandant of Erskine Hospital and dedicated by one of our elders, Professor Tindal. “The work of our Minister under war conditions was beset with difficulties better to be imagined than described. The Manse itself was not spared the great sorrow that had visited other homes. By a strange coincidence a son of the Manse in the Second World War was also to lose his life serving his country in the Air Force just like Rev. MacMillan’s son. Rev. Blair’s elder son, Flying Officer Colin C. Blair, RAFVR, was lost somewhere over Norway and there is no record of the confirmation of his death. In 1946 a dedication ceremony was held on Sunday 13th October of a Communion Cup donated to the Church by Rev. and Mrs. Blair in memory of their son Colin.” [record 271611]
