About the memorial: The panel of the memorial is of scots oak, with the names carved in 'sunk-raised' channels; the panel is surmounted by the Faculty Arms (duplicated and various emblems, the thistle (duplicated), the poppy and the lily. The present Faculty war memorial replaces an earlier version which was situated in the faculty HQ at 14 Queen Street, Edinburgh (this memorial was unveiled on 21 June 1921). The original memorial recorded the deaths of fellows at 6 and students at 37 during WW1 and also Fellows at 34 and students at 121 of the faculty who served in the war. Note this memorial did include details of rank and regiment which are not included in the second and current version of the memorial. The scroll memorial was inscribed on vellum and enclosed in a protective wooden box with doors of coromandell wood. The current location of the original memorial is unknown, it is suspected it is lost, maybe discarded. Some of the materials such as the ebony frame were recycled to create the new memorial in 1952. The faculty has moved several times since the original unveiling and it seems the memorial was put into storage during these moves. In April 1998, the Faculty moved to Maclaurin House (18 Dublin Street, Edinburgh) and the war memorial was installed on the left wall of the entrance hall. It was rededicated on the evening of May 20th 1998 by Revd James S Marshall at a short service attended by twelve past presidents of the faculty. Then, on June 2014 the faculty and memorial moved to it current location. (The memorial was unveiled in its new location on 10 November 2017).
