I recently came across a report in a 1920 edition of the Wigtownshire Free Press of a Roll of Honour for the London Galloway Association. When I investigated further I found that the Association had ceased to exist in the 1990s but all documents were stored in the archives of the Ewart Library in Dumfries. With the help of Cathy Gibb, one of the librarians there, the RoH has been located in the vaults.
