Can anyone confirm for me please if this man is listed on the Forfar Roll of Honour and on the Bank of Scotland WW2 memorial in Edinburgh?

He is named on the Kelso War Memorial as:
LIEUT. WILLIAM F. DONALDSON. (note the middle name error)

William had been employed in the Bank of Scotland in Kelso before moving to the branch in Forfar. He had joined the Territorial Fife and Forfar Yeomanry and was mobilised in 1939. He was commissioned in the RTR in March 1941.
(Source: Forfar Dispatch 25/12/1941 p.2 and London Gazette 28/3/1941 p.1886)

Born 1913 in Ballina, County Mayo, Ireland. Son of the late William Ferguson Donaldson (died 1938) HM Customs & Excise and of Miriam Hazel (Howard) Donaldson, formerly of Maxwell Lodge, Abbotsford Grove, Kelso.

Killed in Action on 22 November 1941 and buried in Halfaya Sollum War Cemetery, Egypt.
