There was a Veterans of the War of 1812 plaque ceremony held in Perth-Andover, NB on 26 September 2015 for Private Alexander Murchison, 104th (New Brunswick) Regiment of Foot. It was a cool but sunny autumn day with over eighty people in attendance. The plaque was unveiled by MWO Kevin Murchison, a g-g-g-grandson, and his son, Private Alexander Murchison! Interesting how names remain in families.

All the best,

Gary

Sarah,

It was a nice ceremony and turned out to be quite the family reunion! I had organized the plaque and gave my standard spiel about the Veterans of the War of 1812 plaque project.

All the best,

Gary
