This Roll of Honour has been held in Tarbrax Church which is now closed and being converted to a private residence.
The Roll of Honour, known locally as the "Scrap of Paper" is being held in care before being donated to the National Archives.
This Roll is also posted under Tarbrax Church.

Thanks to Mr Campbell Fisher for information and permission to post the pictures.

I was surprised by the comment that it is going to the National Archives. Surely this would be better retained by a local archive in Lanarkshire?

Also, is it possible to make out the printers name at the bottom of the Roll?

Thanks

Adam

The information I was given was that the Roll is at present with a local Historian and would, with other items he has, be given to the archives. If you want contact details of the gentleman I talked to let me know and I will Pm to you.

As far as I can make out, the print at the bottom says....
"Facsimile of the wreath? by general permission of the Foreign Office. To aid The Prince of Wales National Relief Fund"
Hope this helps.
