18 Aug 2013 Generous Donation of World War 2 WAAF Jacket by Mrs Mabel Langlands
Mrs Langlands, now a sprightly 93 years of age, was wearing the jacket in May 1942 when she plotted the arrival at Tealing Airfield of the Russian Goverment Minister, Molotov, who was on his way to London to meet Winston Churchill to sign the Anglo-Russian Peace Treaty. Part of Tealing's history has come home and arrangements are being made to preserve and display the jacket in Tealing Hall.

Sunday 20 May 2012, Tealing Airfield Memorial unveiled! Photo Gallery
It was a happy occasion though for many reasons. We were honoured to have two very special guests, WAAFs Mabel Langlands and Margaret Erskine who were both based at Tealing Airfield. Mabel was in the Operations Room and actually plotted Molotov's landing on 20 May 1942! Both ladies are 90 years old and were delighted to participate in the event. We thank them both and their families for coming along.
Ken Bannerman, Director General of ABCT unveiled the memorial, followed by Dr Ted Luscombe, retired Bishop of Brechin and Kirkton of Tealing resident, who did a very moving dedication. We were also honoured by a flyover and salute from pilots Drew Dudgeon and Jim Watt of Tayside Aviation flying from Riverside Dundee Airport.
Piper Ross Henderson of Fintry Pipe Band then lead everyone back inside for a cuppa. The conversation and memories flowed until, after more than 60 years, the Tealing Airfield bell rang out in Angus again. It had been brought to the hall for the day by Dougal and Elma Barrie, whose Auntie Bebe (previously of Moatmill) preserved it after the war. Thanks to everyone who made it such an enjoyable and memorable day!

People of all ages in Tealing are gripped with excitement at the prospect of the Olympics coming to the UK in July. So much so, that they are putting on their own Olympic Gala Weekend from 15 to 17 June. The celebration will open with Tealing Primary School Sports where, in good Olympic tradition, there will be a parade of the teams and passing of a torch to declare the “games” open.Other attractions include a Creative Tealing Cake and Crafts Exhibition, demonstrations and displays by several local activity groups, a Mini Horse Show, a Pet Show, and a family show featuring “Tealing’s Got Talent” on the Saturday night.
Tealing Community Councillor and Chair of the Events Group, Sandra Burke, said “We are delighted to have been awarded a community grant of £3500 for the Gala Weekend from Angus Council. The council recognises the fit between a small village like Tealing wanting to strengthen community spirit and the Olympic ethos of participation and fellowship. Most of all, it’s about people of all ages in the village coming together to enjoy activities. There will be something for everyone.” Alison Scott, head teacher of Tealing Primary School said “We are really pleased that the school sports will open the village Gala Weekend. The children are all looking forward to it and the Olympic theme is adding extra excitement this year.”Reverend David Collins of Sidlaw Churches added “It’s heartening to see the enthusiasm and local interest this community-building project is generating. Lots of folk are volunteering to help make sure that it will be a big success.”
