Remembered Today:

Mystery - 1/9th Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders


Recommended Posts

I have been researching my two Great Uncles killed when their dugout was struck by a shell at Dumbarton Lakes on the 5/4/15.

Two other casulties were listed on that day on the casualty list. Pte James Richardson and a M Mclachlin. I have found the casulty record at the War Graves Commision site for J Richardson but there is nothing for M Mclachlin (or Mclachlan) for that day for that Regiment or any other Regiment..

Could the casualty list be wrong ?

Pte M Maclachlin - Service Number 2011 - Killed in Action - 05/04/1915 - 1/9th Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders
