|Saughtree School Roll of Honour
OS ref NY 561 968 UKNIWM Ref No. 46449
This framed parchment originally hung in Saughtree School but when it closed, the Roll was moved and it now hangs in the church at Saughtree.
It list those from the school who served in some capacity during the Great War and carries at the bottom, the names of nine men who made the supreme sacrifice.
Of Alfred Morrow, James Spalding and Charles Wilson, I can find no details of these men which links them directly to Saughtree or Liddesdale so for now their history is lost to us. Nor are any of the three commemorated on the Liddesdale War Memorial which sits in Newcastleton.
Time but th' impression stronger makes, As streams their channels deeper wear.
