Meet to Ben Lowers, March 1930.

Perth Mountaineering Club (PMC) began life as the Perth Section of the Junior Mountaineering Club of Scotland (JMCS) in 1929 and, apart from the period during the Second World War, has since provided a focus for mountaineering activity in all its forms for those living in the Perth area.

PMC was originally one of the six sections, the others being Glasgow, Edinburgh, Lochaber, Inverness and London which was formed as feeder clubs for the Scottish Mountaineering Club for mountaineers not yet qualified to join the 'Senior Club'.

The PMC still retains the ice axe and rope logo of the JMCS and some of us remember getting together with the other sections for club dinners, whole club AGMs and occasional joint Meets. The use of the word 'junior' in the title should not put off prospective members of a more advanced age as our membership ranges pretty much from 18 to 80-plus.
