Well done for attending the ceremony, Craig.

Did you have any more thoughts about the photo? I'm certain that's not a Grenadier.

To those members who went out of their way to help me in my personal quest to find my Great Uncle name recorded on a Memorial I finally got over the border the weekend of the 'weather bomb' and sure enough found his name and sacrifice detailed on The Bathgate memorial, though it failed to note he was awarded The Military Medal, the fact he is among all those other sons of Scotland who are remembered for me is comfort enough to have found him. Thank you very much indeed for your kindness I still hope to be able to add more in the future and in July 2016 will travel to visit his grave.
