The CWGC headstone is to be erected in the month as Mark Duffy and others from thsi site identified that 2nd Lieut ALEXANDER DALE MUIR , 6th Bn BLACK WATCH died in Perth on 12 April 1917 and his grave has not yet been recognised as a War Grave casualty .

Iain Anderson, Regional Supervisor Scotland has reported that 2nd Lt Muir's headstone will be erected shortly at Perth Wellshill Cemetery at Parochial 2 Section E lair 11 .

He also states that at this cemetery are two other casualties of war and they are :

Pte James Alexander , death 4 /9/1916 , parochial 2 lair 219

Pte Alexander John Campbell , parochial lair 435


Iain Anderson has also informed me that buried in Perth there are two others :
Casualty Gillespie , Scottish Horse
Casualty Low , Labour Corps


He will keep me posted on the updates and I will keep you posted on this website and the Scottish War Memorials Project site

Iain Anderson , Regional Supervisor Scotland for the CWGC has notified me that on 27 September 2010 the Commission erected at PERTH (Wellshill ) Cemetery Perthshire their headstone relating to 2nd LIEUTENANT ALEXANDER DALE MUIR , 6th Black Watch who died on 12 April 1917 the son of George & Margaret Love Muir . The headstone was erected at Parochial 2 , Section E , Lair 11

There may be a Black Watch Association ceremony at the graveside in due course arranged by Major Ronnie Proctor MBE in conjunction with Iain Anderson of the CWGC . Mark Duffy who did the initial extensive search to prove this Officer was a CWGC casualty has been informed of this update . Thanks also go to Jim Grant in Aberdeen for his assistance in this Officers research and I will keep you all posted on any updates I get from the Black Watch Assoc and the CWGC and hopefully any family members traced and invited as there will be family living Canada as well .
