The CWGC database has the middle name of Sqdn Ldr Landles as Ninlan. I have contacted them about the mistake.

Note that Gibson and Landels died withn days of each other. When you pass through Bolton if you blink you miss it so the death of two of its young men in one week would have been quite a blow.

As far as I can find out Rathburne is the name of the house (and I presume estate) in Rawburn outside Longformacus in Berwickshire.

The Holme brothers head the list of names on the Longformacus Lych Gate
