March 2011. The Webmaster is aware that an image copy of the SECOND
EDITION of this book is currently available online at -
but original books may be available at booksellers and elsewhere. Beware of Internet sellers where you are provided with TEXT ONLY versions which are extremely poor value, lacking the images required. The original books are full of images, portraits, letters, musical score, etc.
3rd April 2011. The Webmaster has acquired a copy of the FIRST EDITION of this book and IMAGES (which includes hundreds of portraits) from it are now available on this website. Access to a copy of the SECOND EDITION has very kindly been made available from Angus Council Archives at Restenneth, near Forfar, so that the added information in that book can be made available and placed on this website. Check HERE or write to the Webmaster. (SAMPLE PAGE)
You can get a copy in, JPEG format, of each page. On many pages are 'thumbnail portraits' of several servicemen, or group shots. These pages have been scanned at high resolution. You can copy the complete page, then CROP the image of your chosen individual using your image application. From there, the resulting file can be printed to at least 7" x 5" in most cases giving a presentable quality family portrait. You can also add the relevant text to the photo.
Please ask the Webmaster should you need further advice.
Thank you for your e-mail.
