    I have seen T G F Paterson, the curator, listed as J G F Paterson.

    There is also a Thomas G Paterson who was/is a Professor of History at the University of Connecticut, Storrs.

    I also think there was an artist called G F Paterson.

    I am off to the laddies rugby just now. He can't play any worse than yesterdays Scotland Team.

    Re: Information request, Armagh

    I've just been researching the casualties on the Kirriemuir war memorial and also war graves or family graves lising war casualties and had a look at the Commonwealth war grave commission website on LATEST NEWS and there is some info that might be of interest to Armagh :

    War graves Ireland : Professor Fergus D'arcy has a new book out called " Remembering the War Dead - British, commonwealth & International War Graves in Ireland since 1914 .....

    priced 22 Euros

    see authors website :

    Dear All and Webmaster

    I am now not able to continue with this section of the website due to the comments by Kirrie who seems to have just in the last days joined the web from New Zealand

    I am sorry to not be able to continue

    I couldn't agree more Charlie,

    I've made my plea on Pat's Corner, But I think you hit the nail on the head
    "The comments of one do not reflect the feelings of the majority"

    and I guess the majority would want Pat to carry on his excellent articles

    Come on Pat give us another go PLease
