I'm the author of "McCrae's Battalion" and the designer of the Contalmaison Cairn, which features elsewhere on your site. I also set up a Registered Scottish Charity (McCrae's Battalion Trust) to care for the memorial site, support the annual I July ceremony of Remembrance and educate the public about the history. We recently unveiled yet another bronze plaque in the village and (in short) our commemorative project is continuing to grow at pace. In response to this challenge we are about to launch an initiative to raise a modest amount of regular income by extending membership of the Trust to interested members of the public. Bearing in mind the story of sacrifice that lies behind the battalion, I wonder if Clan Macrae and your excellent website would be willing to help spread the word? I would be more than pleased to answer any questions that you might have. Thank you for your consideration.
