Dunkeld Cathedral - Cameronian Battle Marker

Posted by webmaster | Uncategorized | Friday 4 September 2015 4:28 pm

After some months of negotiation but with the support of Historic Scotland we have managed to secure two important additions to our cause at Dunkeld Cathedral namely a Battle Marker recording the event that took place on the 21st August 1689 and an enhanced Grave Marker to our first Commanding Officer who died in that battle, Lieutenant Colonel William Cleland.

On 26 June 2015 these two new additions were unveiled in the presence of the Regimental Trustees namely Majors Brian Leishman MBE, John Craig TD DL, Ian Farquharson and former member of the Regiment Mr Tam Balloch MBE, representing The Cameronians (SR) and Family Members Organisation together with those from Historic ScotlandĀ  who have made it possible, namely Mr Graeme Bell and Ms Karen Williamson andĀ  most of the Apprentice Stonemasons (whose engraving skills the subject of much positive comment) and their Instructors.
