Private John W Bulloch

Hi,

I am researching the men and women commemorated on the Dunfermline WW1 Memorial. In total there are 647 names on the Memorial, so far I have been able to identify 638 of these.

I am having trouble identifying the remaining 9. The first one being:

Private John W Bulloch. According to the Dunfermline Journal of 26th Sep 1925 he is listed as:
Bullock, John W. Rae's Buildings, William Street Dunfermline, Private 7th Black Watch. I believe the correct spelling of his surname to be Bulloch and his full name to be John McLeish Whitelaw Bulloch.

The Dunfermline Journal of 3rd October 1925 lists who I believe to be his brother:
Bulloch, Jas W. Rae's Buildings, William Street Dunfermline, Private 7th Black Watch
James was killed on the Somme in October 1916 and is buried at Auchonvillers.

Any help members could offer to identify John would be most welcome.
 

Rgds,

Alex

All I could turn up was a possible MIC:

Pte. John BULLOCH, S/20017, Royal Highlanders [Black Watch]

For those who have the means and access to other resources that might lead to turning up something of interest = perhaps!

Couldn't find a pension card at WFA/Fold3 for the above.

[A PIC for Pte. James BULLOCH, 2749, Royal Highlanders, just records his mother, Margaret, was living at 42 Cemetery Rd,  Dunfermline c.1928]

Thanks for the replies.

Indeed, according to Scotland's People On-line Records John McLeish White Bulloch died in 1997 in Kirkcaldy, Fife. So this is not the John recorded on the war memorial.

My search continues .........
