Maybe we were distantly related? Tragic, he was only 18/19 and killed so close to the end of the war. RIP.

Adam Millar is my great, great uncle. I believe there is a memorial plaque in Edinburgh, perhaps in the RBS building at St Andrews Sq. I was wondering if this is where it is located as struggling to find out online and would like to visit it.
