Here is a war savings plaque that I photographed in Dumfries and Galloway Aviation Museum. Somewhere I have photos of a couple of others that I photographed in Biggar Museum if anyone wants to see them?

There's another one of these in the store room of the Royal Highland Fusiliers Museum.

I'm sure I've seen another two somewhere but I don't recall where I saw them.

I am sure Midlothian Council has a Salute the Soldiers plaque, but where I can't remember!
