It would be interesting to know what records still exist from this organisation.

Adam has some notes on this advisory council. Of the countless memorials in the country, they advised on something like 150 of them...so they weren't called upon much.

I believe they do have the papers from the time and I have the name of someone to contact about it when I can find some time.

I wouldn't be surprised if the 150 committtees they helped were the county towns and prosperous communities full of middle-class residents who wanted something bespoke such as Hawick.

Thanks

Adam

Oh wait, just seen this is WW2, not WW1 which David and I were discussing
