Yes, but if there's a group of us I'm sure we could get the ones we don;t have on the forum photogrpahed in time!

If there's five or more of us we'd get it covered in no time at all.

And that's assuming they are all visible enough to photograph - i think the last time we were there alot of the memorials were in area's that had restricted access due to renovations/repairs etc. Maybe not an issue as it was a wee while ago now.

Last time I was there the renovations were pretty much finished. I almost asked if I could sneak through the barriers to take pictures.

I was just there in October and there were still some renovations, but most of the memorials were accessible. They charged a pound to take photos and I had to wear a tag on my shirt. (I didn't see any SGPPD* folks lurking about though!)

If I can manage to get the time off work and come along I don't think I'd be able to take the train but I'd be happy to give a lift to anyone en route. I'd be driving from Glasgow along the M8 to Edinburgh and could easily make detours no problem, can carry three passengers in comfort, four at a push.
