Dedicated to my late Grandfather Private 64457 John Duncan Royal Army Medical Corps whom I never met, but was my inspiration to make this journey, and to all the other men from the Parish who did their duty for King and Country.
This site commemorates the men from the Parish of Newbattle in Midlothian who fought and sadly for many,died in the Great War of 1914 - 1919 and the Second World War of 1939-1945.
Nearly 200 men did not return to their villages of Newtongrange, Newbattle, Easthouses, Lothian Bridge and Eskbank, collectively known as Newbattle Parish.
"Your Country Needs You" - This is their story.

Street of Sorrow - Newtongrange Primary entry for Legion Scotland Remembrance Film competition. Very proud to have worked with the kids on this project looking at the impact of war on Newtongrange.
Sadly we didn't win but it was great effort none the less, and everyone involved in the project gained something from it. Onward and upwards.
