This Memorial photo was taken by my friend Fraser Mitchell in Aberdeen and my thanks to John Burnett for adding it to this index . Fraser is to see if there is a headstone for Rev John Maitland in Greyfriars Kirkyard in Edinburgh . He has done a transcript of the wording for us from the badly worn headstone .
