Thank you to member ADP who pointed out that both the person who submitted this memorial to the UKNIWM and I have mistaken the first letter of the second word on this memorial for an 'S' when it is in fact a 'B'.

I have now amended the title and I will contact the UKNIWM.

Regards

Adam

The Edinburgh Reporter reports that the plaque has now been refurbished to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Battle of Flodden

Today members of the South Central Neighbourhood Partnership (SCNP), Merchiston and Morningside Community Council met along with local Councillor Sandy Howat to celebrate the restoration of the marker plaque in Morningside Road of the 500th anniversary of the battle of Flodden in 1513.
The organisations raised £1,700 via the SCNP to restore the plaque as a mark of respect for the fallen of Flodden.
According to legend the Scottish army under James IV set off from this point on the Burgh muir to go to Flodden. Two thousand men from Edinburgh’s trades left with him and never returned.
A spokesperson for the two bodies said:-”In all an estimated 10,000 Scots died in one of the bloodiest defeats in our history. We felt it was important to mark the event.”
