Seconded. Carfraec: We all remember them all. Every day, in many ways; we don't need to trot out 'train spotter's lists' of the Fallen. This isn't a card game where you swop names with your mates to get the whole set. Do it in private, print it and stick it on your own wall, commit it to memory. Rea...
