There are 5,000+ inscriptions in this system which vary from 'adequate' to some with 'names only' but no rank, regiment, or Service. However, they do have a 'conflict' and monument number. Another
variable feature is how regiments are ??. For example, 'Seaforth Highlanders' may be in full, or as 'Seaf', and sometimes as 'SH'. An 'OR' and 'NOT' option will be added in future so that 'SH' or Seaf' will cover all three.

'War Numbers' are limited to those used in the file. Currently these are -
00 for the Boer Wars.
01 for the Great War (1914 - 1918).
02 for World War Two (1939-1945).
03 for Korean War.
04 Palestine (no names)
05 Irag (no names)
80 for the 'Iiolaire'.
90 for HMS Natal.
'Monument' and 'Conflict Numbers' (initially set to zero) must be two digits, as in the 'Monument Selection', except for the 'Iolaire' and 'HMS Natal'.
'Names' and 'extra info' can be upper or lower case. That 'extra Informatiom' enables Regimental names, ranks, etc to be included..
NOTE: The Palestine Roll of Honour (nearly 800 names) and the Iraq Roll of Honour have been checked for Ross-shire names, but there were none.
