SDGW (Ancestry)

Name: William Dennison

Birth Place: Barony, Glasgow, Lanarkshire

Residence: Glasgow

Death Date: 14 Sep 1914

Enlistment Location: Glasgow

Rank: Private

Regiment: Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders

Battalion: 1st Battalion.

Number: 7683

Type of Casualty: Killed in action

Theater of War: Aldershot

"Residence" and "Enlistment Location" are probably switched (a fault with Ancestry)

The theatre of war is also incorrect, as are all ancestry theatres.

Another Ancestry discrepancy - SN is different!
