Sunday 20 May 2012, Tealing Airfield Memorial unveiled!Photo Gallery
Almost 100 people came along on Sunday 20 May to see the Airfields of Britain Conservation Trust (ABCT) unveil a permanent granite memorial in memory of those who served at the airfield during WW2. Community Council Chairman, Graeme Reoch, welcomed everyone and then Steven Burke read from Jim McFarlane of Todhill's happy childhood memories of the aerodrome, which were both funny and very touching - moving some of those present to tears.
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!

Dec 2009 - Tealing's new website goes live!
"Ten years ago, when we published the Tealing book and opened the permanent photographic exhibition in the hall, there was lots of talk about creating a bigger archive of information about the village that could be regularly expanded and updated. Now we have that in this new website. We have a permanent space on the world wide web, where everything there is to know about our village can be kept for posterity. Children of all ages will be able to learn things they might not have otherwise known and older people can record their memories to make sure they are captured forever" said Sandra.
Graeme continued "Tealing Community Council is delighted to support this very worthwhile initiative. We hope people of all ages will get behind it and help make it a great focal point for all things to do with Tealing".
