Hi Malcolm W,

Hi Malcolm W,

From the mother site the Long Long Trail.

1/9th (Highlanders) Battalion:

August 1914 : in East Claremont Street, Edinburgh. Part of Lothian Brigade, Scottish Coast Defences.

26 February 1915 : transferred to 81st Brigade, 27th Division.

24 November 1915 : transferred to 14th Brigade, 5th Division.

25 January 1916 : transferred to Third Army Troops.

So he would have been in 27th Division. Have you got his MIC info?

Aye

Hi Malcolm

ok so this is going to get confusing, lets see how it goes might just change my name.

his MIC just states name, rank, number, enlistment/discharge and why he was discharged, no mention of medals or anything else

Malcolm, have you checked here -

There are also very skilled interpreters of these cards on the forum and if you could post an image of yours it may prove useful.
