This is not listed on UKNIWM. Amazing that it has not been lost or forgotten - obviously well looked after by someone.

Having tramped around the castle a fair few times, I can't think how I forgot about this one. If memory serves, it was cleaned up a few years ago.

A new brass plaque to these Polish soldiers who were killed while training was dedicated in the grounds of Kelso War Memorial to day (5/5/2013) in a ceremony attended by the Consul General of Poland, Dr Tomasz Trafas.

Given the materials used I think it would have been more appropriate to have mounted this plaque indoors.

Thanks
