There was a heartwarming start to Old People’s Week in Brechin in the Sunday evening ‘family service’ in Maisondieu Church. 
There was a good turn-out of old folks and the younger generation had also responded well to the minister’s invitation to come along and join in.

In an effort to advertise the need for more recruits of high quality, the local ‘D’ Corp. of the 4th/5th has arranged a recruiting day in the Public Park, Brechin, for Sunday October 11. 
This will start off at 2 p.m. when the Pipes and Drums of the Black Watch battalion march from Church Street to the Public Park. The Military Band of the battalion will also play selections there.
