The memorial for both World Wars takes the form of a memorial doorway into the main part of the school from the entrance hall.



I only had my phone camera to hand so I will hopefully return with proper camera soon.

There are 179 names for the First World War and 180 for the Second World War.

Thanks

Adam

St.Oswald’s, the school's annex also contains a War Memorial.


St.Oswald's Parish Church, Edinburgh.

"The memorial is executed in fine sandstone, and takes the form of a recess in the wall of the aisle with moulded arch.
It contains four panel on which are carved the names of 28 men who gave their lives in the war.
The architect is Mr Henry F Kerr, A.R.I.B.A, and the work was carried out by Mr Thomas Beattie, sculptor."
Dedicated March 27th, 1921
