Mostly British with a large dose of Scots in the list. Some must be on memorials on the forum. An interesting read none the less.

Derek - An interesting read indeed.
A Scot not mentioned was George Huntly Badenoch of Castle Douglas
(but he's not mentioned on local WM's either)
his story is told in some detail at http://archive.mehstg.com/badenoch_george.htm
