    My Great Uncle John A Auld was one of the troops to lose their life in the Train crash, My Father Edward Arnold Hart and my Grandfather George Bain Preston were also members of the Royal Scots Regiment.

    I am visiting Edinburgh from Australia at the end of May, so I will miss the Commemoration.

    Is the memorial open to the public at all time, I would like to visit and pay my respects, also is their information regarding the Train crash available at the museum or is it best too visit Gretna Green.

    Thanking you in advance.
