Malcolm and John

Thanks for the updates. I have now amended the list and added a few links at the same time.

Regards

There is a memorial (at least one) in Tynecastle High School, it featured briefly on Reporting Scotland today. It includes Tom Hunter VC and there is also a nearby photo of him.

I have now added the 53 closed NatWest branch plaques to the end of the list of Edinburgh memorials.

I've also remembered a couple of more TA centres.

Brandon Terrace, Canonmills - Beside Water of Leith. Army Service Corps TF. Demolished long ago.

Leith Fort - Home to the Royal Artillery in Scotland for 150 years and laterly used by an RAMC TA unit. Demolished in 1960s except for the main gate and some of its walls. Now home to some pretty horrible 1970s flats & sheltered housing.

And an update on one I've already listed. It looks like the old 7th Royal Scots building in Dalmeny Street is being converted into a community theatre for Leith.

There was an other TA Center that I know of as I used to be attatched to the unit based there in the 1980's and 90's.
205 Gen Hosp (Scotland) RAMC was based at a TA center in Gilmore Place, think they have moved to Granton, but not sure who now uses the building in Gilmore Place. (might be flats now!!!!!!)

Yes, it's this one-

6th Bn Royal Scots - Viewforth. Passed to RAMC TA. Now converted to flats. RAMC now at Granton

It is flats. There are a few bits of the old stone 6th Royal Scots Scroll at the East end of the flats. I visited it before its conversion but I'm afraid I've lost my photos of it.

Thanks

From the post office archives I believe that the 3 Edinburgh post office memorials are located in a memorial garden at the Edinburgh mail centre, 11 Cultins Rd

There is a memorial not yet listed. In the HQ of the Scottish Midland Co-operative Society Ltd, Fountainbridge is a memorial plaque for 49 WW1 deaths. Source - Scran website (access to schools only I believe).

I'm pretty sure Scotmid moved from their Fountainbridge site a couple of years ago. Hopefully they took the war memorial with them.

I thought that but I thought it best to put down the info currently on Scran as it is always better to start with the known. There is a possibility that the memorial was left in the old building (now being developed) but more likely it is at their new HQ:

Scotmid
Hillwood House,
2 Harvest Drive,
Edinburgh,
EH28 8QJ

The photo on Scran (which is copyrighted so not possible to post it here) does not capture the full memorial. It only has the first half-dozen names.

There is (or should be) a WW2 Roll of Honour to the 56th (St Brides Church) Scout Group, Edinburgh. Probably in scout premises at Orwell Terrace, Dalry, Edinburgh. One man is listed as died, Troop Leader Sgt Andrew H Cunningham RAF - 4th February 1941.

The Scotsman WW1 memorial plaque.

"The World War I commemorative plaque/war memorial which hung on the marble staircase at the Scotsman building in North Bridge Edinburgh."

From a copyright photo I have access to, it appears to be a bronze plaque with a marble backing.

I have no idea where it is now.

Just been reading up on the 3 X 3 panel windows in the Eric Liddell Centre (formerly North Morningside Parish Church) - a WW1 memorial. Apparently they have recently renovated. UKNIWM 57417. We don't have them on the project yet.
