    The memorial pillar commemorates the 214 Officers and soldiers of the 1/7th Royal Scots who died in Britain's worst ever rail disaster at Quintinshill, Dumfriesshire, on 22 May 1915.

    A further 13 railwaymen and other passengers also died.

    "Lord Roseberry" should read Lord Rosebery.

    The memorial seen here is being unveiled in Rosebank Cemetery on Pilrig Street in Edinburgh.
