Edinburgh schoolboy uses Commission website to discover incredible story
13 January 2011
12 year old Glynn Mullen, a pupil at Leith
Academy in Edinburgh, has devoted several months of his spare time
compiling a Roll of Honour of those former pupils who died in the
Second World War.
Using the Commonwealth War Graves Commission's website, Glynn has
drawn up a list of 75 names and by getting in contact with many of
the former pupils' families, he has been able to build up a
fascinating story of many of those who were killed.
This video also explains how Glynn and other Leith Academy
pupils came up with a unique design for the Board of Remembrance,
cleverly employing camouflage designs used on ships.
