Over the past year myself and 2 others (mainly the others!) have been busy researching the WWI dead from Musselburgh and surrounding area, we have now compiled it into a book and all being well it will be launched in Aug/Sept in time for the centenary.

Great news Shona. With the work on Portobello's roll of honour and the work on Crookston's war memorial it's more good news from that part of the country.

Thanks

Adam
