UKNIWM Ref No. not listed

Intersting why a small village like this should have 2 memorials, the larger cross having fewer names than that for the members of the Recreation Hall.

The Recreation Rooms WM has a couple of men from Duns listed, which is only a couple of miles away. I wonder if it was a club before the Great War rather than a local village hall.

Preston WM names

1914-1918

BURNS , John C , Private , 11th Bn Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders
COLVINE , John , Private , 2nd Bn King's Own Scottish Borderers
FORTUNE , Robert , Private , 6th Bn King's Own Scottish Borderers

JOHNSTON , Wellwood M , Sergeant , 4th Bn King's Own Scottish Borderers
