Sorry for taking so long to reply. I missed this post completely.

I can confirm the Plaque was moved and is displayed in the New Kingsland.

The new school is situated on the Western approach to the town opposite Hay Lodge park.

Derek,

Just as a point of interest. Adrian Lucas (dad) and family run a football tournament every year (Alec Lucas Memorial Tournament) in memory of Alec.

All money raised goes to Local charities and also the Royal Marines Benevolent Fund.

What an amazing archive footage.

Apart from Douglas Haig, John Buchan appears on the film as well.

Could you confirm that C R MURRAY is Charles Robinson Murray a science master at Kingsland School, Peebles when he enlisted?

2nd Lt. KOSB DoD 18/9/1916. Born 1883 Tongland, Kirkcudbrightshire.

Many thanks


Hi Malcolm,

I have just read this post and can confirm that there is a plaque to Charles Murray displayed in the school.



The Glasgow Herald, Saturday, 24th. February, 1917.
"A brass tablet which has been placed on the wall of the hall of Kingsland Public School, Peebles, by the teachers, in memory of Second Lieutenant Charles L. (sic) Murray, who was a member of the staff, was unveiled yesterday afternoon by the Rev. Dr. Martin, in the unavoidable absence of Sir Henry Ballantyne, chairman of Peebles School Board."

I have to say the brass plaque looks absolutely first class. Well looked after. (Many thanks for the help, Ken.)
