I thought it would be good to have a single post where anyone can see which civic memorials have been published and which are being researched. It would also be a useful way for authors to get in contact and exchange notes. I will update the list with any info people wish to post as replies.

Perhaps this should be made sticky?

Auldearn & Ardclach - Stuart Farrell - published 2008
Blairgowrie and Rattray - Mark Duffy - published 2007

"Jedburgh's Wartime Sacrifice" by JD Smith. Published last month priced 10.00

It gives a detailed history of the men of Jedburgh lost in both world wars.

The book is on sale from Jedburgh Royal British Legion, I also saw it for sale in Melrose book shop so I'd imagine most bookshops in the Borders will stock it.

Thanks

Adam
