Many thanks to Jean Smith, Session Clerk Dennistoun New Parish Church, for allowing me to photograph the Roll of Honour.

John - you've just added two items to my "Well I never knew that" list.

it was surprising enough to see the flag of Brazil on the bottom right edge of this Roll but to see the flag of Siam Shocked
(that's Thailand for the youngsters amongst us)
I then read that a couple of thousand soldiers from Siam served on the Western Front Shocked
