As a young "old soldier" and the son of an "old soldier", it was really pleasing to see that Jack Roberts had been accepted.

 

John (Jack) Henry Roberts – age 21 – Private (10402) 2nd Battalion, King's Own Scottish Borderers.

John was just 14 and a musician at the Duke of York's Royal Military School in Chelsea when he enlisted in the KOSB in March 1909. He landed with his battalion at Le Havre on 15 August 1914 as part of the original British Expeditionary Force. He was wounded and taken prisoner in November and held at the Stadtisches, Krankenhaus (Hospital), Eisleben near Leipzig before being transferred to a prison camp in February 1915. He was repatriated in an exchange of wounded prisoners and spent time in a London Hospital in July 1915 where he was diagnosed with tuberculosis. He was discharged from the army in August 1915 and awarded a Silver War Badge (490648). Jack returned to Lockerbie where he died at Harcourt Place in July 1916.

Born 1895 in Lockerbie, Dryfesdale, Dumfriesshire.

Son of late Sergeant James Roberts, KOSB (janitor at Lockerbie Academy) and of Catherine Roberts formerly of School Lodge, Glasgow Road, Lockerbie and of Brixton London.

Died on 26 July 1916.

Known to be buried in Lockerbie (Dryfesdale) Cemetery.

Named on the Lockerbie War Memorial and on the All Saints Episcopal Church memorial in Lockerbie.

Ken
