Gt grandad robert mundell served with 14th and died in Weymouth in may 1915. Are there any records of them before this?also puzzled over his service no as recorded on CWGC site - 4369 which appears to be generic belonging to many.

Any info appreciated. Thanks

Hi Jintyd

Major Ewing's book "The Royal Scots 1914-1919", states that the 14th RS was a New Army unit that was formed in Weymouth in 1914. It was commanded by Lieut-Col A.H. Battye. The unit became a reserve battalion and was sent to Stobs in 1915. They moved to Hispwell near Catterick in October 1915 and then moved to Kirkcaldy for garrison duties in the spring of 1916, which covers the period that your relative was involved with them.

Regards

LIT
