By the way, I don't think the names in this roll of honour in the book are available on any memorial.[/quote]

Are the names in the book not all the men from the village who were involved in the war? Thomas Nelson died in 1945; Alexander Nelson died in 1947; and John Nelson died in 1965.

I think I understand the question....................

'Roll of Honour' normally refers to a list of all of those who served (not just those who died) and such a Roll normally exists as a framed document, or sometimes a painted panel or engraved plaque.

My point was that the men listed in this book (also called a Roll of Honour) do not appear to be listed on any such memorial (scroll/panel/plaque) that survives. However I hope to contact someone in Wanlockhead this summer who may have access to local archives.
