hi all

Happy New Year to you all

I thought (although I am still very interested in WW1) I my family interest had ended , however:

I have recently found out my great uncle on my mothers side was killed during WW1.

what I have found out is :

Private Robert Arnott Millar Royal Scots Fusiliers 2000973 was part of "A" Coy 1st/4th Bn his date of death is on 19.4.1917 in Palestine , he is buried in Gaza War Cemetary.

can any of you tell me or direct me to how he died and or what he would have been doing in Palestine?

any help/information would be greatly appreciated.

regards

Elinga

Hi Elinga

The 4th Battalion Royal Scots Fusiliers fought the Second Battle of Gaza 17th-19th April 1917, an attack against the Turkish army which is not considered a great success, and they suffered around 230 casualties.

There are several pages describing the battle in John Buchan's history of the Royal Scots Fusiliers, and if you send me your e-mail address in a private message (or e-mail me: william"at"williamrevels.com putting the @ symbol instead of "at") I will e-mail you scans of the relevant pages.

William
