Plans for a memorial garden to commemorate a Perthshire Spitfire pilot - taken prisoner during World War II - have been given a boost.
Flt Lt Alastair “Sandy” Gunn was one of 76 men who escaped the German prisoner of war camp Stalag Luft III on the night of March 24–25, 1944 - an event forever immortalised as The Great Escape.Following his heroics the Perthshire pilot was one of 50 escapees subsequently recaptured and executed by the Gestapo.And almost 80 years later his bravery has not been forgotten.
Plans have taken seed to create a garden in his honour on disused green space - just fifty yards from where Flt Lt Gunn was born and raised.
The Rotary Club of Auchterarder and District applied to Auchterarder Common Good Fund for funding to help create a memorial garden next to the town's Collearn Drive.Read more on dailyrecord.co.uk
