Where possible, photos of the men are included. There is a surname index.
It covers both World Wars, and includes the Roll of Honour of St Mary’s School, Melrose."

How amazing! I sent some e-mails to St Mary's school only yesterday. I had seen some newspaper references to a memorial consisting of three oak panels surmounted by a fine clock - the names of 33 past pupils who fell in the war were inscribed on the panels. Rather worryingly, the school say they have never heard of this.

It'll be there, somewhere....

A number of times I've asked folk if their church has a memorial plaque or window, roll of honour or aything war related inside and they are quite sure there isn't, it turns out there's a massive granite memorial on the wall.
