New Merchant Navy Memoriial for Leith

from Edinburgh Evening News 31st March
The Merchant Navy Memorial Trust has applied for permission to erect a memorial of national importance near tower place at the shore to commemorate the 6500 Scottish Merchant Seamen who died in the first and second world wars.
The directors of the trust include "William Thomson, heir to the company that ran Leith's famous Ben Line which lost 18 ships during the war"
I tried to attach the article which includes much more information but could not get it to attach.
