Not listed on UKNIWM

Location inside Canongate Church, Edinburgh at OS Map Ref NT 264 738.

I really don't know which boys club this is, the name is just a guess based on the fact that it is inside the church and is a relatively recent memorial.

One name caught my eye. I believe Craigie Brash to be Craig Brash of the Royal Engineers.
