The memorial plaque on Perth’s North Inch Close is was erected and unveiled by Perthshire International Brigade Memorial Fund on 5 June 2010. Ten volunteers from Perthshire – Eddie Brown, William Gilmour, John Gordon, Hugh MacKay, Robert Malcolm, James Moir, Annie Murray, George Murray, Tom Murray, and George Steele – volunteered to serve with the International Brigades in Spain.
UNITE played a significant role in ensuring the original plan to mount a magnificent piece of artwork was successful.
The inscription on the plaque is words by poet and son of Perth, William Soutar: “Even as blossoms fall circling about a tree our deeds within our world define our world.”
