About the memorial: A wooden shield shaped board with silver plaques. It has been presented annually since 1921 for the winner of The Midland Counties Swimming Association schoolboys championship. Its silverwork includes an engraving of Lieutenant Milne as well as scenes depicting the Bell lighthouse and Broughty Ferry Castle. It is competed for across Dundee, Angus and Perth and resides each year in the winner's school. It commemorates Lieutenant Robert Milne, 206 Squadron Royal Air Force, died 11 August 1918 aged 20.
