This Roll of Honour is currently on display in Douglas Heritage Centre.

I am unsure of the current whereabouts for Calder St School - there are two schools in Blantyre on Calder Street - Calderside Academy and Auchinraith Primary. I don't know if either of these are what became of Calder Street School.

My thanks to Mr Bert Jackson for allowing us access to the Heritage Centre.





Apologies for the quality of these pictures. The light was not great.

Interesting to see there are no officers listed on this Roll. The highest rank is RSM.

Interesting to note we got a roll of honour of the same design in Maryhill just last week with britannia and an Argyll.
