About the memorial: Glazed-framed hand-painted/written Roll of Honour. At top-centre is the Leith Coat of Arms and motto (Sigillum Oppidi de Leith Persevere, i.e. Seal of the town of Leith), flanked by the words "Leith Police". Beneath is a banner bearing the inscription "Roll of Honour", followed by the names of the Leith Burgh Police officers who had enlisted, annotated re those of them who died. Beneath the second column of names is the figure of an Archangel proffering an olive branch. (In the bottom right corner is the signature of the artist/calligrapher who created the Roll of Honour). N.B. The 18 former officers who this Roll of Honour indicates as having died were also commemorated on a brass plaque that hangs in Leith Police Station, WMO/281054. (The spelling of some of those names is slightly different). The memorial originally hung in the Leith Burgh Police Station. On an unknown date, it was removed from that location and passed into private hands. Having resurfaced many decades later, being auctioned, in August 2020 it was purchased and gifted to Police Scotland's Museum at Tulliallan Castle.
