Dr Ken Bogle and the Midlothian Council's Library Service have identified this war memorial. We donít have a photograph or location but it does still exist. I have added it to our database and I hope extra information can be added here at a later date.

*Title amended as a photo has now been posted.

Pictures of the 2011 Remembrance Service at Lasswade High School can be seen on their website.

A replacement Lasswade High School is now under construction. Here's hoping the memorial is given the same prominence in the new building.
