LIT - one man on your list doesn't seem to be on the memorial, or is it just me? Confused
Clark-Kennedy, Archibald Douglas Hewitt, Capt, 5th RSF, DOW 18/09/1918, F&F

I know he did work for Standard Life, both in Edinburgh and Bombay, and later with the Law, Union and Rock Assurance Company in London.
He is listed with his brother, Alexander, on the Carsphairn WM in Kirkcudbrightshire.

Hi Ken

You're correct. Have amended above. He is mentioned as having once worked for Standard Life in the Scotsman 30th September 1918 and is also given a brief mention in the Standard Life Company book [not as having died in that particular reference].

I think it is located in what was the Head Office building at the end of George Street on the corner with St Andrew's Square.

I asked someone I know who is working there to track it down:

1 George Street.
"Through reception into the central staircase into the area near the boardrooms and then downstairs (only bit where there's enough room to display it - its huge!)."
