The Roll of Honour
Men who have answered their Country's call in defence of a 'Scrap of Paper'

Dunkeld Royal School

This documant is a translation and facsimile of signatures from the original treaty of 1831 guaranteeing the independance and neutrality of Belgium, which was confirmed by the six Powers in the famous treaty of 1839, the breaking of which by Germany is responsible for the present war with the British Empire.

The 'Scrap of Paper'

Article II.

Her Majesty the Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, His Majesty the Emperoro of Austria, King of Hungary and Bohemia, His Majesty the KIng of the French, His Majesty the King of Prussia, and His Majesty the Emperor of all the Russians, declare, that the Articles mentioned in the preceding Article, are considered as having the same force and validity as if they were textually inserted in the present Act, and that they are thus placed in the guarantee of their said Majesties.

Article VII.

Belgium, within the limits specified in Articles I. II., and IV., shall form an independant and perpetually neutral state. It shall be bound to observe such neutrality towards all other States.

With some difficulty I went over the ROH and listed those who appeared to have 'markers' next to their name. I then cross referenced with those actually listed on the School War Memorial;

I thought this a very unique ROH, I don't think a similar one has been posted on the project. Although it looks like it was possibly mass produced in relation to Prince of Wales' National Relief Fund. I didn't think it was particularly patriotic in its sentiment saying our country was at war over a 'scrap of paper'.

What or where is the "Royal School"?
Is it/was it a Private school?
