Inside the church is an accompanying Roll of Honour in what I am coming to think of as the "off-the-shelf" style (there are several local church rolls, in this exact form, which you obviously bought then filled-in yourself). It's faded over the decades - however, it turns-out some sensible soul back in 1996 wrote-out the inscription and left it on the back in an envelope!

Those killed are not denoted in any way, and some names are added.

Note the 1996 transcriber missed one entry:

Dickson, Trooper Peter, L&B Horse

Also it seems Thomas Paterson of Lancashire Fusiliers on the memorial, is instead denoted as Thomas Paterson of the KOSB on the roll.

The roll of honour should have its own entry rather than be in this thread.

Thanks

Ah, I see, no bother. On UKNIWM the civic memorial and roll are listed on the one number, also I was a bit worried over unnecessarily clutterring up the subforum with multiple threads!

I think I have done the same thing for Longformacus and Greenlaw so I can make new threads for those too.

Should I be putting them in "Borders: Other Memorials" or "Borders: Rolls of Honour"? Latter is listing books/websites rather than framed rolls.

The Roll of Honour is now WMR report 81082.

It had been removed, after Merseman's observations, from 5661, but not then given it's own report.

So, not for the first (or last) time, the detailed narrative of posts on this forum, is pointing out WMR (UKNIWM) errors and ever so slowly allowing for their rectification.
