I have many Edinburgh details on my database but little idea of where to look for a memorial.

Rossie Place is near the top of Easter Road.

I've had a look at the church memorials from the churches and former churches in that area and I can't see his name.

There's a chance he may be on the Edinburgh Roll of Honour which is in the process of being digitised I believe.

Regards

Adam
