Glasgow Roll of Honour updated

Thanks to David McNay from the Scottish Military Research Group for letting me know about the update to the group's WW1 Glasgow roll of honour. From its blog:

The Scottish Military Research Group have been running a project to fully transcribe the First World War Roll of Honour for the City of Glasgow. It was originally published in 1922 and listed name, rank, unit and address. At present it can only be viewed at the City Chambers in George Square, or the Mitchell Library in Glasgow. For people outside of Glasgow access to the information is difficult.

Our aim is to make the Roll more accessible, and at the same time make it easier to search and sort the data.

The first section of 4,340 names covered surnames A - D and was released on 23rd December 2011.

Today we are pleased to release the second section, which covers the surnames E - K and is for a further 3,600 names.

(Cheers David!)
