Dundee and An­gus Col­lege trib­ute

The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - NEWS -

Dundee and An­gus Col­lege so­cial science and en­gi­neer­ing stu­dents have cre­ated a me­mo­rial to com­mem­o­rate those who died dur­ing the First World War.

The plan is that this me­mo­rial can be adapted and changed ev­ery year, with stu­dents from dif­fer­ent ar­eas of the col­lege giv­ing their in­put on the sur­round­ing de­sign, rein­vig­o­rat­ing remembrance for years to come.

This year it was de­cided to cre­ate a cascade of pop­pies, with the Prince’s Trust stu­dents mak­ing red flowers to en­hance the de­sign of the in­stal­la­tion, which is a soli­tary kilted sol­dier.

D&A Col­lege Ar­broath wel­comed Ma­jor Ron­nie Proc­tor, provost of An­gus and sec­re­tary of the Black Watch As­so­ci­a­tion, to un­veil the me­mo­rial.

Else­where, mem­bers of In­verkeilor Parish Church knit­ted the hun­dreds of pop­pies which are now cas­cad­ing from the pul­pit.
