Hello, Tom,

Would appreciate 1/8th Battalion for the first week of August 1916 if you have it.

My ancestor was killed that week.

Thanks

Hi Tom

Any chance of a copy of 13th Bn. Royal Scots for the first two weeks in September 1915 and a week either side of 25th April 1916. Great uncle hospitalised during the first period with shell-shock and killed while attached to 253 Tunnelling Coy over second. According to their diary the Tunnelling Coy sent a report of the incident to the 13th Royal Scots. Any assistance greatly appreciated.

Hello,

I am new to this site and wondered if any one has war diaries for the7th Battalion Royal Scots around the battle of the scarpe . Specifically leading up to the 27th August 1918. My grandfathers older brother Private William O'Connor service number 33212 died on that day and i would love to find out a little more detail of what the circumstances of his death were. The best i have have found out so far is that his battalion became 'pioneers' for the 51st Highland Division. I have found medal cards and a memorial record with the war graves commision but no service record to gain an enlistment date. The only other detail i have is a T.R Battalion service number 2/5320.

Any help would be greatfully recieved.

Colin,

Welcome to the Forum but can you please confirm the Battalion.

It was the 8th Royal Scots that became the Pioneer Battalion to the 51st(Highland)Division.

sorry my mistake , William was definately in the 1/7th Battalion Royal Scots . Got myself a little confused looking into what division the 1/7th joined on arrival in theatre.

if i am right i think the 1/7th didnt enter the european theatre until 17th April 1918 moving from Egypt .

Colin,

Assuming you live in Scotland there is probably a copy at the Royal Scots Museum in Edinburgh Castle.

Hopefully another Forum Member,who has a copy,will come along soon and post the relevant day's entry.

Hi Tom, I am interested in the 2nd Battalion on the lead up to the 26th of August 1914 in the Battle of Marne. I am at present doing a project to searching for all the men on my local war memorial.

Private Henry Lamont sadly was the first of the 28 men killed during WW1 from the parish of Killearn.

Cheers Rab

I'm looking for information on the Royal Scots. My G Grandfather was killed near Nieuport on 15 July 1917. His details are Pvt Hugh Douglas, No. 13650. He's commemorated in Coxyde. I think he's shown as being from 5/6 Battalion of the Royal Scots. Any info would be grate and especially details on or around 15 July 1917.

If you have just that page that would be great. I'm still digging on Ancestry - could only find the 11th Royal Scots and HQ, 27th Brigade. I will keep digging.
