THIS MONTH IN OUR HISTORY -

7 November 1926 Dedication Service for Middle Church Members who died in World War I

Remembrance Sunday - Each year, a full turnout of the Society is requested to escort the Provost and Councillors of Perth and Kinross as they process to St John's Kirk. This year (2022) there is no parade due to the ongoing works around the City Hall, but we will still mount a Guard of Honour before the service. After the service, the Society will mount two Guards of Honour - at St John's Kirk and at the saluting base in Tay Street.

Oath

High Constables bear a natural allegiance to their Sovereign. They had a quasi-judicial office and in bygone centuries were charged with maintaining law and order in the locality. As such a High Constable is required to swear an Oath of Allegiance.

The Oath which is sworn in front of the provost of Perth and Kinross Council, is as follows;

"I do Swear that I will be Faithful and Bear true Allegiance to His Majesty King Charles III, His Heirs and Successors according to Law. And I further Swear that I will well and truly Serve our Sovereign in the Office of High Constable of the City of Perth and will Loyally and Faithfully perform the duties of that Office and will do Right to all Manner of People after the Laws and Usages of this Realm, without Fear or Favour, Affection or Ill-will. So help me GOD."
