At home in Arbroath last week I was looking at The War Memorial on the High Common and saw the name of Lt Col Huw Blair Imrie and wondered if he was WW1 or not. Any information?

Thanks

Smokie,

No idea, involved in War Work, although at nearly 69 years of age not sure what work. You would have to find out what the criteria was, set by the committee responsible for the War Memorial locally. Local J.P. who had served???
