    An other council on the take and not giving out on the money they receive. They should be take to task over this, but as usual it will be swepted under the carpet. I forgot they cannot afford carpets in Dundee, it's jute sacks, instead.

    Courier & Advertiser Tuesday 5 May 2009 : CRAIGIE section in all editions :

    FOUND ON MEMORIAL:

    The Caird Park memorial to BLACK WATCH soldiers killed in the First World War ahs featured recently for the wrong reasons but a more uplifting note comes from Ken Kennedy of Broughty Ferry , who says:

    "I have been tracing my grandfather's activities during the first world war for some years and with the help of TOM SMYTH of Balhousie Castle have visited his grave at Y Ravinje Cemetery in Newfoundland Park near Beaumont Hamel , France .

    "He was killed during the battle of Ancre on November 13th , 1916 , I was aware of a memorial in CAIRD PARK but it was only when I saw the photos of the names did I realise that one was of GEORGE MCLAREN.

    "I checked with Tom and found there were four George McLarens killed, but only my grandfather was from the Parish of MAINS. Although there are no ranks or numbers on the memorial , it seems it is indeed , my grandfather who is commemorated there.
