Are you sure these aren't posted, I could have sworn I added them after taking pictures on my phone a couple of years ago. The NBoS memorials are now in Gogarburn, Edinburgh

Thanks to Judy Irons and the security staff at the Royal Bank of Scotland H.Q. at Gogarburn for allowing access to the building and giving permission to photograph the Memorials.
They are situated on a side wall and rather difficult to picture but at least we have it here.
