Mostly men from the Merchant Navy. One lost on the Rawalpindi too.

I notice two men died after the war and are listed as "From War Injury". Can anyone make out what year George Irvine died?

I see three men have two locations listed one in Shetland and the other on the mainland (two Leith, one Edinburgh)

Here are the two soldiers

ROBERTSON, THOMAS BRUCE
