This Roll of Honour is normally kept in the vestry but is brought into the church for Remembrance services as it was today.

Paul,

Thank you for updating this thread with the photo of the Roll of Honour. As you may know, I intend to publish an updated Stewartry RoH. This type of nominal roll (versus RoH naming only those who died) is very valuable in filling in missing individuals and hard to find bits of information (e.g. in this case, MGC units).

Cheers,

Stuart

Hi Ken,

It is D.H., so Deck Hand, Royal Naval Reserve (Trawler Section). Quite often worked on minesweepers.
