Interestingly the Roll lists 128 members but the plaque mentions 143 men served.

Further to Adam's last, the roll shows Alexander McKenzie (number 125); whereas the plaque lists him as Bro A MACKENZIE. Brothers Berry and Kidd are not on the roll.

The Roll of Honour is done in a strange way instead of reading down the way you have to read across so Berry is No. 103 and Kidd is No. 19.

Also Mackenzie looks like Arthur to me, not Alexander.

Cheers
