May They Rest In Peace

Hugh Middleton is the result of my continuing research into the Times archives

From the Times of 12th August 1914

His service record contained the cause of death so no death certificate was required

Probably died on the Hired Trawler Columbine based at Fraserburgh

Well done to those who got them commemorated.

Hardaker's record says that he was badly wounded in the head at Bullecourt in May 1917
