After some research, we believe this Memorial to be from the University Club, Edinburgh.It is situated within the New Club, Edinburgh.

Thanks are due to Ms. Wendy Maynard for allowing permission to photograph the Memorial.
The quality of the pictures is not great and I will return to retake them.

The crest at the top of the Memorial.

Derek - if memory serves me right (so no guarantee) it's opposite the Floral Clock. On Google street view it's between H&M and Foot Locker.

The Club is at 86 Princes Street, Edinburgh. It's a little brown door between H&M and, I think, Gap.
Unless a member, you need permission before you can enter. (A bit like the secret service!)

I had initially thought that the memorial was somehow related to Edinburgh Uni but I'm now thinking that this was a wholly seperate University Club which was a "members only" club?

Derek, you might be right.

Took this comment from the New Club twitter/newsletter of last year.....

Excellent 'Voices of War' on Fri as the Club's pre-Armistice Day event. 36 came, followed by a service at the University Club's memorial.

Some of the names on the Memorial are listed on the Edinburgh University Students Representative Council roll of Honour.

It's a guessing game as to where the memorial actually came from. My contact at the new Club has no idea.

I am not sure where the actual Edinburgh University Students Representative Council Roll of Honour is held but you can see a list of names on the Edinburgh's War website.
It is listed on the Roll of Honour page under Education.
"Edinburgh University Students' Representative Council Memorial Service and Roll of Honour".

My guess is it could be Teviot Row House, aka "the Student Union", on the south side of Bristo Square. It's the original union - the SRC meet in its Debating Hall or Dining Room.
