my great uncle Richard john walker was a 6th seafoth highlander. he was killed by a sniper june 2, 1916 in france. was wondering if his name is on the war memorial in elgin. and if the roll of honor is a book or not.

There are some splendid photos by "Roxy" on Page 1

and if you look carefully at the left-hand column of the panel of names, his name is there (about 14 down on the Seaforths section)
