Can I start a project to find soldiers on a war memorial by adding them one at a time until they are all found. There are 10 in total. I will post the next soldier next Monday and add another and another on consecutive Mondays until either they are all got or I have no hair left in my head.

This is where I need your help.

The only information I have is what is either on the war memorial or in a book of rememberance. Both of which are not 100% accurate.

The first soldier I need you help with finding a link to either Kilbirnie or Glengarnock is

Private John Barbour, Royal Scots Fusiliers.

This is the only info I have on him. I hope someone can help me. Best of luck

Cheers pals, now can a pal link the above to either Kilbirnie or Glengarnock. I would hate to think I enter all the details and he was from Aberdeen not that Aberdeen is a bad place

The only problem with the man above is that he's a James Barbour born in Edinburgh:
