Orcadian casualties of Spanish flu 1918

I've just been doing some research into the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic, as you do, when I came across this useful list for those with Orcadian ancestors. It is a list of all casualties of the pandemic amongst Orkney servicemen from 1918-1920. The list can be found at www.rbls-kirkwall.org.uk/memorials/ww1BCasualties/SpanishFlu.doc , part of the Royal British Legion of Kirkwall's site.

The main site at www.rbls-kirkwall.org.uk also hosts other links with memorial information from across Orkney - a real treaure chest of information, and a great effort compiled by Brian Budge and the many volunteers listed on the site who have contributed to the project.
