John Rae graveside ceremony

In recognition of the great man’s birthday we are having our usual graveside ceremony this year at St Magnus Cathedral by John Rae’s grave outside ( Not his monument inside ) We plan to have the usual Piper and there will be a short speech, flowers and a wee dram of Highland Park will be poured on his grave.

Meet at War memorial arch 12 noon. Piper takes us up to the graveside, short welcome, toast to JR, words of inspiration from John Welburn, thanks and goodbye.

Everyone is welcome to come along to join us in this simple annual service to remember John Rae, his achievements and beliefs.
