For ranks, award, branch details etc - ask me.

I have been researching this memorial amongst others and recently unearthed a copy of the roll of men from the Bank who served - this was bundled amongst some other Linen Bank papers and even the HBOS archivists were unaware of its existance.

Unfortunately I was only able to note those who did not survive the war, but I can provide full details for any of the men listed.

It is my intention to publish a more detailed roll than that originally published some time in the future.
