The gold names against the green marble are very difficult to pick out even at very close range.

Derek,

If you have researched the memorial do you have any idea why there are 28 listed here and only 12 on the public ? That is a big difference.

It may depend on the denomination of this church or they may have had less strict criteria for inclusion on the memorial.

I'd try and find out what the denomination was in the early 1920s

I notice that John Lang is listed as Sch of Musk. Which I take is School of Musketry.

There is an online detailed short history of the School of Musketry, later the Small Arms School at Hythe. http://www.kentfallen.com/PDF%20REPORTS/HYTHE%20SCHOOL%20OF%20MUSKETRY.pdf

It has a Roll of Honour but John Lang isn't listed on it. Neither is he one of the 12 names listed on the Bowden Civic War Memorial

James Ballantyne Scott of The Canadian Seaforths is eluding me. He is listed on the civic memorial as well which gives his middle name and confirms his unit.

The Canadian Seaforths were the 72nd Bn CEF but also made up part of the 16th Bn Canadian Scottish.

I've found a James Scott who's family came from Birgham but he isn't listed on any of the memorials in that part of the Borders: Coldstream, Eccles (the parish of which Birgham is in), Leitholm, Kelso, Sprouston and Ednam. He was also formerly 76th Bn and 4th Bn neither of which were Canadian Seaforth battalions

So I have a James Scott I can't identify in Bowden and a James Scott from Brigham I can't find on any memorial.

SCOTT, JAMES
Initials: J
Nationality: Canadian
Rank: Private
Regiment/Service: Canadian Infantry (Central Ontario Regiment)
Unit Text: 4th Bn.
Age: 19
Date of Death: 08/09/1916
Service No: 141542
Additional information: Son of James and Margaret Scott, of Laurel Cottage, Birgham, Berwickshire, Scotland.
Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead
Grave/Memorial Reference: I. F. 13.
Cemetery: SUNKEN ROAD CEMETERY, CONTALMAISON

His Attestation papers don't help

Forget the man listed above for now. This man is a more likely fit for James Ballantyne Scott

SCOTT, J
Nationality: Canadian
Rank: Private
Regiment/Service: Canadian Infantry (British Columbia Regiment)
Unit Text: 72nd Bn.
Date of Death: 30/10/1917
Service No: 1016013
Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead
Grave/Memorial Reference: Panel 18 - 28 - 30.
Memorial: YPRES (MENIN GATE) MEMORIAL

His unit is the Canadian Seaforths and his attestation papers give his name as James. he was born in Earlston, Berwickshire (but not listed on that memorial). His mother is Mrs Margaret Scott residing at Clarelaw ????? Roxburghshire.

A handwritten placename has been written on the attestation paper but I can't make it out. His birth date was 5.2.1884

Thanks Jim. Newtown could be Newtown St Boswells which is very near Bowden

By trawling Google I found a reference to Clarelaw and Middleham Mill in the Barony of Bowden. It could be the old name for Midlem?

I found something else which says "Clarelaw, called Langsyde" and there is still a Langside just south of Bowden.

Clarelaw seems to spelled Clarilaw on modern maps. Perhaps it was then too and Clarelaw is just a typo or a false recollection.

Note his age Shocked
CWGC has:
Captain LANG, JOHN.
Died 15/04/1917
Aged 68
General List (T.F. Reserve)
An author. Son of John and Jane Sellar Lang, of Overwells, Roxburghshire, and Viewfield, Selkirk; husband of Jean Blaikie Lang, of 46, Queen St., Edinburgh.
Buried at SELKIRK PARISH CHURCHYARD

Southern Reporter 26/4/1917 p.6
CAPTAIN JOHN LANG. As announced last week, the death occurred at Banchory of Captain John Lang. fourth son of the late John Lang, Sheriff-Clerk of Selkirkshire, and brother of Andrew Lang (not a nephew, as stated our last issue). Andrew Lang's last book, "Highways and Bvwavs in the Border," was begun in collaboration with his brother John, but in consequence of Andrew's death in July 1912, the entire work, with the exception of about one-tenth, came from his brother's pen. Besides smaller works and contributions to " Cornhill." " Longiman's” “ Scotsman" etc.. he was author of "Outposts of the Empire" and "The Land of the Golden Trade," published by Messrs T. C. & E C. Jack, in their "Romance of Empire”, of which he was editor. For the same firm he wrote " A Life of Nelson." and, in collaboration with his wife (Jean Lang), compiled "A Poetry of Empire" and, later, "Stones of the Border Marches." Captain Lang had had an adventurous life. In Australia, where he spent much of his life as vinegrower, he was for many years a member of the Victorian Mounted Rifles. Later, in New South Wales, he was captain of a local rifle club, runner-up for the Kolapore Cup, and winner of many medals and badges. He volunteered at once when the Boer War broke out, but was not accepted, owing to a defect caused by an accident in boyhood. Although in his sixties on the outbreak the present struggle, he volunteered for service and declared his willingness to serve in any capacity, and on account of his good marksmanship he was given a captain's commission and appointed instructor of musketry. Later he held the appointments of Adjutant and Quartermaster to the Scottish Command School of Musketry, Machine Guns and Bombing, at St. Andrews and Barry Camp. He acquired the illness from which died at Barry, and gave his life for his country at Banchory—where his brother Andrew also died—on the morning of April 15, 1917. The burial service was held at St. John's Episcopal Church. The service was choral, the Psalm being the 39th, while the hymns were "Lead, kindly light." and "Now the labourer's task is o'er." The music was reverently rendered bv the choir boys, accompanied by Mr Hartlev on the organ. The Rector of the Church and the Rev. Canon Reid, Rector of St. Paul's Church, York Place, Edinburgh, took part in the service. After the service the cortege proceeded to the Old Kirk Yard, the burial place being within the Church. The committal was taken by the Rev. Canon Reid, an old friend of the deceased. The pallbearers were Mrs Lang, Dr. Blaikie, Thos. Blaikie, Professor Scott Lang, Patrick Sellar, John C. Scott of Synton, A. F. Roberts of Fairnielee, and J. Strathearn Steedman, Selkirk.
