Friends,

I need some help in looking up the service of a specific soldier who served in the British Army.

I am good at looking up Australian personnel, but am unsure how to check on non Australians.

The soldier is:

Lieut. Claude Keith Macdonald

93rd Regiment

Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders

KIA France. September 1915.

I believe that he was Australian born, or connected.

I would appreciate any assistance.

Thanks,

Hello there,

The 1911 Census has him as an Oxford Student, born in what I think reads "Daventry, Northants" (UK). His mother, Alice Blanche, is listed as being born in Melbourne, Australia, so that's probably the link. His younger brother, J or T Falconer, and his younger sister Queenie, were also born in Melbourne, so I would say the family must lived there for at least a little while. SDGW has him as 10th Battalion.

Hope that helps,

Chris

Need to hope that it hasn't been "Weeded" (a 1930s pastime in the WO) too severely.
