Thanks to the generosity of a number of anonymous FPs, two items of World War 1 memorabilia have been bought at a recent Auction Sale and donated to our archives.
The Death Penny, given to the parents of Second Lieutenant James Beaton McKinnon is very special. How it came to be in a local man’s Military collection remains a mystery. Perhaps someone reading this may know members of his family. If so, please tell them that it can be seen in the Archives.
The Roll of Honour has been scanned and is now on a CD. In the fullness of time the pages will be put on the gallery.
These tours will be conducted by a member of your committee.
Your first contact when requesting a look round should be with the Secretary who will clear things with the Rector.
Please give two alternative weekday dates to allow for activities in the school.
The optimum time will be at 4pm after school.
This arrangement will work well and, with the prospect of the new Archives Room in the Tower opening this summer, will also fit in well with the FP’s commitment to that project.
Morgan Academy Magazines c 1930 – 1970 have been scanned by George Stout and a band of very willing volunteers.
It is hoped that the magazines will be available for viewing on the Computer in the Archives Room, before too long.
