Remembered Today:

Robert Stewart, 9950, 1 & 2 Black Watch

Robert Stewart's service was all too brief; indeed it would be interesting to know how long he was at the front:

He was a recalled reservist.

He went to France with/to 1 Black Watch on 13 August 1914.

He was reported wounded and in 1 Scottish General Hospital, Aberdeen on 3 November 1914.

He was presumed to have been killed serving with 2 Company, 2 Black Watch on 9 May 1915.

Two questions, please:

If he was seriously wounded enough in November 1914 to have been brought back to the UK, he cannot have returned to duty long before he was killed. (Or were more men brought to hospitals in the UK in 1914 than would have happened later?)

1 Scottish General Hospital was a TF unit based in Aberdeen, did it eventually go to France?

Early on a lot of injured men were sent back who would have been later treated in France once the front became more settled and the hospitals established.

Many thanks for both answers.

There were four TF General Hospitals in Scotland:

1 Aberdeen

2 Edinburgh

3 and 4 both Glasgow.

I wonder if 58 was anyone of these?
