Lawrie, Robert Pte 352227 12th August 1917. Private R Lawrie, Royal Scots, son of Mr Thomson Lawrie, Bridgend Bathgate, is notified killed in action on 20th September. He served his time as a clerk in the goods office, Upper Bathgate Station, and then went to Shettleston, at which station he was when, in June 1916, he joined up. He went to France in October 1916. He was the recipient of an official card signed by Major-General George Harper, congratulating the young soldier on the gallantry displayed by him on 23rd April 1917. Sergeant-Major D Walker, writing under date 25th September, to Mr Lawrie says: – Dear Mr Lawrie, it is with the deepest regret that I have to break the painful news to you that your son Robert was killed in action on 20th September. The battalion was taking part in an attack upon the enemy’s positions and our company had arrived at its objective when a shell burst and a small piece struck Robert in the forehead, killing him instantaneously. It may be a little comfort to know that he never suffered any pain, as he passed away immediately. Robert acted as batman to me, and assisted in the Sergeant’s Mess, and I can assure you he was a great favourite with us all, and the sergeants all joined with me in sending their deepest sympathy to you in your great loss.

Lawrie, T.H of Polmont Roll of honour of Falkirk Officers – Lawrie, Thomas Helm 3/9RS Stewart Melville 1916 2/Lt RS was the younger son of Dr T Harcourt Lawrie and Mrs Lawrie, Blairbank, Polmont. About to start medicine (see magazine for further details…) when in May 1916 he enlisted as pte at the age of eighteen. He was soon selected for comm, sent to the front in April of this year and fell in action 25th July in his twentieth year. The circumstances of his death related by his friend and schoolfellow WM Robertson (qv) who was among the first to go to his help when struck, and who survived him but by a few days. He was with his platoon when the enemy put down a terrific barrage of heavy shells. He was struck on the head by  a fragment of shell which pierced his steel helmet, and died at the aid post within half an hour. He was buried in full fighting kit on a spot overlooking the battlefield which his devotion and self-sacrifice had helped to win back from the enemy. A fine, spirited boy, a genuine sportsman….CO writes: “officers and men alike had the very greatest admiration and respect for his gallantry and his great capacity as a leader” and a fellow officer declares that a better and nobler boy never lived.

Also https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_victories_of_Manfred_von_Richthofen – Engines firewalled, the DIIIs tore into the RFC aircraft, the muzzles of their twin Spandaus spitting what seemed virtually continuous yellow flames. The packed formation of ‘Biffs’, obligingly flying in a straight line, became one amorphous target in which, for the highly trained Jasta pilots, it seemed impossible to miss. A3340 was blasted out of position, falling away, pursued all the while by the Red Baron and made an emergency landing near Lewaarde. Its wounded pilot, 2Lt Arthur Lechler set fire to his ‘Biff’ with his Very pistol a little in advance of being taken prisoner. His observer, 2Lt Herbert George, was also wounded and lay nearby. He died in Douai hospital a short while after they were both captured. https://www.agapemodels.com/2009/04/27/kit-preview-wingnut-wings-132-scale-bristol-f2b-fighter/ – Manch Regt Temp 2/Lt from Res Bn to be temp 2/Lt attd AN Leckler LG 30.10.16 Temp 2/Lt AN Leckler Manch R to be transf Gen List 13.11.16 LG 18.12.16 Transf unemployed list Lt AN Leckler 30.1.19 LG 1.4.19 – Temp 2/Lt Manch Regt South Lancs Regt MiD LG 13.7.16 p.6949 – AN Leckler 14 Manch R 2/Lt, RFC VM&BWM.

Alexander Lindsay was born at Edinburgh Scotland on August 18, 1895. He was the son the late William, a Clothier, and Jane Lindsay of 55 Montpelier Park Edinburgh. He was their only son. Attended Bruntsfield Primary School, and later joined George Heriot’s School, on September 27, 1904. He was a ‘Foundationer’, which meant that his fees were paid by the George Harriot’s Trust Office, as his father was deceased. Member of the O.T.C Cadet program from 1909-1911, and an agricultural student. He left on July 13, 1911.
Lindsay joined the Royal Scots at Edinburgh on the outbreak of war in August 1914. 19-year-old Alexander Cameron Lindsay was killed in action. Great War Forum – 2462 Pte. Alexander Cameron Lindsay
Lindsay joined the Royal Scots at Edinburgh on the outbreak of war in August 1914. Arriving with the unit in France in February 1915. The 9th served as a part of the 27th Division, 8th Brigade BEF.
Lindsay was engaged at the Second Battle of Ypres April 22, 1915 where his regiment was heavily involved. They were a member of the famous ‘Geddes Detachment’ that assisted in the attack on Mauser Ridge on April 23, 1915. The 9th Royal Scots are shown as suffering heavily in this assault, those who survived the initial action withdrew due to severe losses.
It was in this action that 19-year-old Alexander Cameron Lindsay was killed in action.
Du Ruvigny’s Memorial book records: ‘…was killed in action during the 2nd Battle of Ypres April 23, 1915, while helping a wounded school fellow after being twice wounded himself. Buried at St. Jean, two and half miles N.E. of Ypres.’
Despite being buried by his pals, Lindsay’s remains were not recovered after the war and his name is therefore commemorated on the Menin Gate Memorial for the missing. Great War Forum and here – AC Lindsay Pte kia nr Ypres 23 Apr, mother Mrs Lindsay at 55 Montpelier Park, 20yo Daily Record 10.5.15

Janet was born 1877 in Kelton, Kirkcudbrightshire, and married William in 1900 in Carlisle. Fred’s father William worked as a coachman. For a short time, he was a pupil of Langholm Academy, enrolling at the school on the 8th of January 1913 when he and his family were living in Henry Street, but he left the school on the 31st of March 1913. Fred was a fellmonger’s labourer when he enlisted as Private (2/5302) in a Training Battalion in April 1917. He was posted as Private (56494) to the 12th Highland Light Infantry in France in March of 1918 but he was transferred to the 1/9th Royal Scots on the 5th of April. Badly wounded on the 1st of August during this offensive, Frederick’s wounds were dressed, but he and the stretcher bearers were killed whilst they were taking him to an ambulance. He had served in France for four months. His father was serving in the Royal Army Service Corps at the time and saw active service in France and Italy. Frederick is commemorated on the Soissons Memorial, France.

LITTLE, JAMES, PRIVATE, 351674, 1/Aug/1918, KILLED IN ACTION, FRANCE AND FLANDERSSW
Little, James, Pte 1918—August 1. INTIMATION was received by Mrs James Little, Lochcarron, Ross-shire, to the effect that her husband, Private JAMES LITTLE, Royal Scots, was killed while in action with his unit in France. He attested under the Derby Scheme, and was called up in March 1916, proceeding to France in November of the same year. He was gassed, had dysentery twice, and also suffered from trench fever very badly. He was home on two occasions convalescing, and went out to France for the last time in June 1918. For some time Private Little (who was born at Upper Kidston, Peebles), was employed as a water bailiff by the Tweed Commissioners at Peebles, and before enlisting was engaged as a gamekeeper in Perthshire. He was married only a year before he met his death, and was survived by his widow. Mrs Little received the following letter giving information as to the circumstances under which Private Little met his death:— “Your husband, Private James Little, was killed on the 1st August, at a place near Buzancy, in the Soissons district. It will relieve you to know that he did not suffer. He was shot through the heart, and death was instantaneous. The task set the Company was well nigh an impossible one, and the men were exposed to very heavy machine gun fire. They were all buried on the field in a place now known, I believe, as the Quarry Cemetery, about four kilometres south of Buzancy. The French have erected a monument near the place to the memory of the Scottish soldiers who fell there. It was a black day for the Battalion, but the success of the operations was due in great part to the sacrifices made by the men. Those of us who are still left with the Company sympathise with you in your bereavement. Private Little was a good soldier, and was well liked by his comrades. Most of his friends—indeed nearly all his platoon were killed, and he himself had got further forward than them all, only to make the supreme sacrifice in the end.” Gunn, Dr., ‘The Book of Remembrance for Tweeddale’, Vol. II, 1920

Lowe, 41 Lauderdale Street 9th RS, General Programme for Dill Season 1911-12 –  As Gordon Highlander “My Grandmother told me the story of how “uncle” was so badly wounded in battle that he was left for dead. Legend has it that he was taken to a make shift mortuary, laid out on a slab, pronounced dead, and then placed in a coffin. They were just about to place the lid down when it was realised he was barely alive. After a long recovery he is believed to have lived a long life.” Brum84 “Tom Lowe was born in 1872 in Ancoats, Manchester, son of Matthew and Mary Lowe. Family story is he joined up at 16, we also cannot find him in the GH for India, but a Cpl T Lowe appears in South Africa, wounded in 1900 and possibly invalided out, so possibly him. There is a letter from him in August 1916 in his older brother Matthew Lowe’s service record (he was KIA 1-7-16 on the Somme) enquiring about what happened to him, the corner is missing but is signed off Sgt Major T Lowe 2/9th…..another story is he served as a Captain the Argyle and Sutherland Highlanders, possible but a bit old in that’s after 1916, no service record or MIC matches, Militia records from the 1890’s could be him, but nothing that matches the photo. We have been told he married twice and had 10 daughters, and lived in Princess Street Edinburgh. Also he taught PT at the Grammar School there, fits in with crossed swords on the uniform and also taught the deaf and dumb in Edinburgh. Tom joined up in 1891, 3rd militia battalion, Kings own royal lancaster regiment. From family it appears he was stabbed, possibly around this time, and there was a lot of trouble, he went to Scotland and joined the 1st Gordon Highlanders in 1892, by the look of it under a false name, served in india until 98. The photo would date from 98 or 99, badges etc as discussed. Then under his real hame and a cpl serves in south africa in 99 and 00. Wounded doornkop 29 May 1900. Invalded and started working as a master at the royal high school in Edinburgh, teaching gym, fencing and drill enlisted in 9th Royal Scots in 1900, Colour sgt in September 1914, csm feb 1915 rsm in june 1915 with 2/9th royal scots . 29 nov 1916 goes to France as T wo1 draft conducting France.

Married twice, 1901 and 1905, 4 girls last one died in 1995. he is in various school directorys over many years and the roll of honour. my uncle Tom is still remembered fondly by older family members, and died in 1956” mattlucas19141918 “he is recorded in the South Africa Medal Roll under his genuine name (CPL T Lowe) with the 1st Bn. Gordon Highlanders, service number 4351 with clasps for Paardeberg, Dreifontein, Johannesburg and Cape Colony and it is specifically recorded that he was ‘invalided’. As aforementioned, there appears to be no record of a T Lowe having served in India with the Gordons, however if you conduct a search using the same service number (4351), rather than the surname; you will find that a LCPL T Hill is recorded with that identical service number in the 1st Gordon Highlanders and entitled to the India Service Medal with clasps for the Punjab and Tirah. So maybe he did join up under a false name (Hill) or a mistake has been made (?) Corporal T Lowe’ 4351 of the 1st Bn. Gordon Highlanders, he is recorded in the casualty lists published by the Birmingham Daily Post d.d. 6th June 1900 as ‘severely wounded’.” Ron Abbott Victorianwars – Col Sgt T Lowe witness offence by F.

LYON, W.S.S. Lieutenant who was killed in action on 8th May, 1915, was educated at Hailybury and Balliol College, Oxford, where he was a member of the O.T.C. and in his College Shooting Eight. He afterwards studied law at Edinburgh University, and was called to the Bar. He joined the Royal Scots, and at the outbreak of war was appointed Captain on the staff, but resigned the post to join the Royal Scots at the Front. He is believed to have been the first advocate killed in action since Flodden. There has recently been published a posthumous volume of verse by him, ‘Easter at Ypres. 1915.’ Named from four poems in it, which he wrote in the trenches. Killed.

Lyon, Walter Scott Stuart 8.5.15 1886-1915 Father: Architect Admitted to Faculty Dec 1912. Educ.: Haileybury, Balliol College, Oxford, Edinburgh University Lieutenant Lyon was the first Advocate to be killed in action in the war, beating James Clark to that unwanted distinction by a mere two days. The Scotsman declared that Lyon was the first Advocate to be killed on the field of battle since Flodden; nobody has since rebutted that declaration, but it seems an unlikely claim. Lyon also had the distinction of being a War Poet of some talent. His best known poem “I tracked a dead man down a trench” was published posthumously in 1916 in his book “Easter at Ypres 1915” He was born at Springfield, North Berwick in 1886. His father was an Architect, who practised mainly in England but who had offices in India Street, Edinburgh as well as a base in Dumfries – one of his surviving designs is for Findynate House, Aberfeldy. However, Lyon‟s father died when he was eight and his mother‟s address by 1911 was Tantallon Lodge, North Berwick. He was educated at Haileybury College along with his four brothers. He then went up to Balliol College, Oxford, to study Classics, followed by Edinburgh University for his law degree; he graduated LLB in 1912, and was admitted to the Faculty in December of that year. He was a sub-warden of the Edinburgh University Settlement, the Charity run by the University to this day. His military career commenced at Haileybury where he was a cadet in the OTC from 1902 to 1905; he continued in the Oxford University OTC; and he joined 9th Royal Scots (“The Dandy Ninth” or the “Highlanders”) in 1910, and by 1913 was promoted Lieutenant. In August 1914 he was mobilised, and his battalion, based in East Claremont Street, Edinburgh, landed in France at Le Havre on 26 February 1915. He had obtained a job as Staff Captain in the Lothian Brigade, Edinburgh, but did not want to stay at home when his friends were at the front, and managed to transfer back to his battalion, even though he lost his position as Captain. In France, he would have fought shoulder to shoulder with James Ferguson, Junior, whose father (James Ferguson, Senior) had helped found the battalion in 1900. In the early part of the war the battalion fought with the 81st Brigade in the 27th Division. His poem “Easter at Ypres;1915” was written in a dug out called “Mon Privilege” in Glencorse Wood near Ypres between 9th and 10th April 1915; “Lines written in a Fire Trench” was written the next day again near Glencorse Wood; and other poems were written near Ypres on 16th April, and in trenches by Glencorse Wood on 19th-20th April. Glencorse Wood was named by Royal Scots troops, as their Regimental Headquarters was at Glencorse Barracks, Penicuik. On 8th May 1915 9th Royal Scots were in dugouts in Potijze Wood near the Menin Road, just behind the front line, some distance from Glencorse Wood. Fierce shelling was uprooting what was left of the trees, and shrapnel was shattering the tree tops, causing deadly shards of wood to fly into the troops on the ground. Lyon was killed instantaneously while tending a wounded man during what is now called the Battle of Frezenberg Ridge, part of the 2nd Battle of Ypres. The British line fell back as much as two miles, but much of this ground was recovered later by Canadian troops. Lyon was mentioned in Despatches on 23rd April by Major Ewing, later to write the official history of the Royal Scots. The citation states: – “C Company had come to a halt behind a hedge which was so thickly girt with barbed wire that men could not break through without great labour. Noticing this, Lieutenant Lyon very coolly stood up and, taking out his wire cutters, began to make gaps. Machine guns played with him, but without any sign of haste he proceeded with his task, never stopping until he had rendered the hedge penetrable.” The official history of the Royal Scots describes the events of the day he died as follows- “On 8th May the storm broke out anew. Our trenches north of the Menin Road were subjected to a terrific and fiendishly accurate bombardment, which smashed in the parapets and obliterated entire sections of the defenders. South of the Menin Road, the shelling also caused several casualties. Lt. Lyon, who had distinguished himself by his cool daring on 23rd April, was among the victims.” The widowed Mrs Lyon lost three of her six sons in the war. Before the war, one of her sons had died at birth, and one died at Haileybury. Her son Alexander was a regular soldier, and was killed on 27th August 1914 – one of the very first casualties of the war. Another son, Charles was killed in November 1914. The only survivor of the six was the Reverend William Towers Lyon, who was the Rector of St Fillan‟s Episcopal Church, Kilmacolm. Even he died young, in 1922, aged only 37. Mrs Lyon, having survived her husband and her sons, died at North Berwick in November 1933. After the war, she had been granted the Freedom of the Royal Burgh of North Berwick for her war work. She also commissioned a painting by Patrick Adam called “Poppy Fields, Flanders” that is now in the ownership of East Lothian Council. Walter Lyon is remembered on the Menin Gate, Ypres, along with one of his brothers. He is also remembered on the North Berwick war memorial with two of his brothers. He is also remembered on a memorial in Christ Church, Lanark, gifted by his mother and his surviving brother, who was the Rector of that church. Church records seem to hint at some sort of breakdown by the Rector in 1917, understandable given the decimation of his family. http://www.advocates.org.uk/media/2172/warmemorialwordpdf3.pdf – Lieutenant Walter Scott Stuart Lyon, Royal Scots, a War Poet, killed in action, 8 May 1915 1914-15 Star (Lieut., R. Scots); British War and Victory Medals (Lieut.) nearly extremely fine (3) £400-500 Walter Scott Stuart Lyon was born on 1 October 1886, at North Berwick. He was the son of Walter F. K. Lyon. In 1905 he went up to Oxford from Haileybury, and read Classics. He came down in 1909 to begin his professional training in Edinburgh, where he graduated in Law and in 1912 he was admitted an Advocate. He was then for some years Sub-Warden of the Edinburgh University Settlement. He was gazetted a 2nd Lieutenant on 14 December 1909, and posted to the 9th Battalion Royal Scots, being promoted to Lieutenant on 17 December 1912. When war broke out he was appointed Staff-Captain to the Lothian Brigade. He rejoined his battalion in France in March 1915. Major John Ewing, writing about the 2nd Battle of Ypres in his history of the Royal Scots , described the following incident on 23 April 1915: ôCö Company had come to a halt behind a hedge which was so thickly girt with barbed wire that men could not break through without great labour. Noticing this, Lieutenant Lyon very cooly stood up and, taking out his wire-cutters, began to make gaps. Machine-guns played on him, but without any sign of haste he proceeded with his task, never stopping until he had rendered the hedge penetrable. Later in his book, Ewing wrote: On 8th May the storm broke out anew … South of the Menin Road the shelling was not so continuous or relentless as it was farther North, but it caused several casualties among the 9th Royal Scots. Lieutenant Lyon, who had distinguished himself by his cool daring on 23rd April, was among the victims. Lieutenant Walter Scott Stuart Lyon was killed in action on 8 May 1915, aged 28 years. Having no known grave, his name is commemorated on the Ypres (Menin Gate) Memorial. He was said to be the first member of the Scottish Bar to fall in action in the Great War and perhaps the first Advocate to fall in action since the battle of Flodden. Lieutenant Lyon was one of the War Poets. After his death, his poems were published in a volume called Easter at Ypres.

Lyon, Walter Scott Stuart, Lt, an Oxford graduate and Scottish advocate, volunteered and joined the 9th Bn The Royal Scots. He was killed in Potijze Wood, near Ypres after fierce enemy shelling. He has no known grave and his name is listed on the Menin Gate. He was 28 years old. During his experience at the front, he wrote several moving poems and can claim his place among Britain’s war poets. 3 of the 4 surviving Lyon brothers were killed in France within the first 9 months of the war. They were brought up by their widowed mother Isabella Lyon in a house in York Road, North Berwick. Walter’s brothers were Patrick Lyon, Gordon Highlanders and Capt. Charles James Lyon. R.S. Fusiliers. The three brothers names are on a wooden memorial in St. Baldred’s Church in North Berwick.

Lyon, was born at North Berwick on October 1, 1886. He came up to Oxford from Haileybury in 1905, and took the Classical course. In College he was extremely silent and reserved, and probably suffered a good deal from solitude : Oxford is sometimes unconsciously cruel to some of her sons. Yet he was no unworthy son, and when he went down in 1909 not only began his professional training in Edinburgh (where he was admitted an Advocate and graduated in law in 1912), but devoted himself keenly to the Edinburgh University Settlement, of which he was for some years Sub-Warden. All the while the real poetic gift that was in him was expressing itself in short occasional poems, though it was only after his death that they were published in the volume called Easter at Ypres, after one of the most significant of them. They are on many subjects – one or two expressive of the pain of his own loneliness; several in a melancholy vein on the fall of the year; many verses written under the spell of beauty of Italy and Italian art; a few composed in the trenches; and a very charming little “Dedication.” In 1910 he joined the 9th Battalion of the Royal Scots, and became Lieutenant in 1913. When war broke out he was appointed Staff-Captain to the Lothian Brigade. In March 1915 he joined his Battalion at Ypres, and on May 8 he was killed in action instantaneously. He is said to have been the first member of the Scottish Bar to fall in the war, and even the first advocate to fall in action since Flodden Field.

He was educated at Radley College, Edinburgh Academy and Edinburgh University (where he was a law student and rower), and lived at 9 Douglas Crescent, Edinburgh. He was for some time treasurer of the Juridical Society. He was a keen member of the St. Andrews Boat Club, and won the Hermiston Cup for Challenge Sculls in 1913-14. He became a member of The Society of Writers to the Signet and a partner in the firm of Messrs. J. and A.F. Adam, (W.S.), Edinburgh.   He served during the Great War in France from 3 August 1916 with “A” Company, 1/9th Battalion, Royal Scots, and was wounded on 9 April 1917, dying of wounds the following day at 42 Casualty Clearing Station, France, aged 31. He is buried at Aubigny Communal Cemetery Extension, France. He is also commemorated on the University of Edinburgh, Radley College, Edinburgh Academy and Brunstfield Links Golfing Society Limited War Memorials. A personal memorial tablet was erected in the church on the Isle of Eigg, which reads “In loving memory of David Campbell MacEwen, 2nd Lieutenant, 9th Battalion Royal Scots, who was mortally wounded in the Battle of Arras April 17th, 1917 aged 37.” A final memorial to him was presented to the Battalion by his mother: “In February 1930, on the 15th anniversary of the battalion’s departure to France, Mrs Margaret MacEwan and the late Mr William MacEwan, W.S., in memory of 2nd Lieutenant David Campbell MacEwan, who was killed in action on April 9, 1917 presented a set of drums with all of the battle honours of the regiment from 1680.” A history of the 9th Battalion Royal Scots, N. Gilhooley, refers.   Sold together with a most elaborate display frame, comprising a paper covered frame, which has been hand painted in an art nouveau style, with a classical scene to top of frame, and signed by the artist ‘Theodore Roussel’, the frame glazed to both sides, one side containing the recipient’s Memorial Scroll, this named ‘2nd lt. David Campbell McEwen, Royal Scots’, and the other side containing the Buckingham Palace enclosure; a superb coloured portrait photograph of recipient in uniform; and three biographical panels:   ‘David Campbell, eldest son of William Campbell MacEwen, W.S., and Margaret Croall was born on October 20th, 1885. He was a Writer to the Signet when the war began in August 1914. He was very anxious to join the army but owing to his defective sight, did not obtain his commission in the 9th Battalion, The Royal Scots until 14th December 1915. David went to France on August 1st, 1916 and joined his battalion. It formed part of the 51st (Highland Territorial) Division which was taking part in the operations on the Somme. In November, he went through the successful action at Beaumont Hamel, which was stormed and captured. In this, his Division, composed entirely of Scottish troops, took the leading part. It was in the early morning of 9th April 1917 whilst leading his Platoon against the German trenches in the assault which opened the Battle of Arras that he was mortally wounded. He was taken to the Casualty Clearing Station at Aubigny ten miles from Arras where he passed away on April 10th. He was buried in the little communal cemetery at Aubigny on 13th April. His life-long friend who was with David during his last two months of service writes: “David was a born Highlander and held it to be a privilege that his service in the Army should be in a Highland Battalion. Of an exceptional cheerful temperament, he attracted all who met him and had many friends in civil life. In the Army, he was the same. It seemed as if not even the most trying of war conditions could damp his natural good spirits. They carried him through to the last and won for him a deep friendship with his brother officers and his own men. As a soldier, he showed splendid nerve and a fine example of fearlessness. It was typical of him that at the times his men were exposed to dangers he was always with them and refused to take advantage of any shelter which they could not share.’ Auction of medals – 2/Lt DC MacEwen mortally wounded Arras 17.4.17 age 37 Memorial, Island Church, Isle of Eigg IWM – DAVID CAMPBELL MacEWEN Resigned, 1910; W.S., 1910; 2nd Lieut.

MacFarlane, A.H 2nd Lt  1912-14 Alastair Hunter Macfarlane, younger son of the Honourable Lord Ormidale, was born at Edinburgh in 1894. When he came up to Balliol from the Edinburgh Academy in 1912 he had already decided to make medicine his career, and by August 1914 he had made a promising start in his medical studies, thanks to his quiet efficiency, good sense and steadiness of purpose. At school he was a good three-quarter, but a torn muscle in his thigh kept him out of the XV and prevented him from playing football at Oxford. He was a good rifle shot, keen about fishing and shooting, and the sworn ally of ghillies and keepers. He was gazetted Second Lieutenant in the Royal Scots in October 1914 and joined the 2/9th (Highlanders) Battalion of his regiment. After six month’s training at home he was chosen as one of the first draft of officers sent to the 9th Battalion in Flanders on May 1, 1915. He reached the firing line on May 11, and his first day in the trenches near Ypres was a very trying experience, as they were under continuous and heavy shell fire, “but,” wrote his C.O., “Alastair stuck it out well and never was in the least perturbed.” He was killed by a stray bullet on the following afternoon, a month before his twenty-first birthday. He was buried at Sanctuary Wood, next to W.S.S. Lyon, another old Balliol man in the same regiment who had fallen four days previously. Alastair had a most lovable personality. His gentle courtesy, admirable good nature, and consideration for others endeared him to many friends at school, at Oxford, and in his battalion. But beneath his gentleness of manner there was the determination and the high sense of duty, which made him so good an officer, and would certainly have won for him distinction in his profession had he been spared.

He left Stewart’s College in July 1915. At school he distinguished himself in the Art Classes, gaining every year the first prize in drawing, and that too in class whose drawing was very much above the average. When the Sketch Club was formed he was one of the first to join, and he was throughout a most faithful and enthusiastic member. Possessed of the true sporting spirit, he was a keen footballer, and played half-back foe the 1st XV in his last year in school. He was a good golfer too, winning the Bruce Medal in 1915. His school course completed, he entered the Edinburgh College of Art in which he gave promise of a distinguished career, being a prizeman in his first and only session. At the end of that session he joined the Royal Scots, having previously attested under the Derby Scheme. We remember how proud he was when he called to tell us that he had succeeded in getting into the battalion on which he had set his heart. Having been at school a member of the Cadet Corps and a good shot, he took kindly to a soldier’s life and soon qualified as a marksman. Early in 1917 he was drafted to France, where he worthily upheld the reputation of his old school and the honour of his country. He fell in action on 9th April 1917. A quiet, almost shu boy with a pleasanr smile, he was a great favourite with his fellow students amd with his comrades-in-arms as he head been with his schoolmates. In him has been lst a born artist, one who gave signs of great promise in his short career. Only nineteen years of age when he fell, his name is added to that honourable roll of those who have given their lives for their country in the cause of truth and righteousness.  Jack MacGregor   Stewart Melville 1917

The painting is by Robert Burns (1869-1941) who at the time was Director of Painting at the Edinburgh College of Art. The painting was presented to the Regiment and then the Club, by Robert Roy MacGregor’s family. Robert Roy MacGregor faked his age by saying that he was in his seventeenth year, when he was actually two months short of his birthday. Following induction, he joined the Battalion for basic training in Kilmarnock and, by September 1915 he had been commissioned 2nd Lieutenant with the 2nd/8th Royal Scots at Chelmsford in Essex. By 1917, he was in the Machine Gun Corps in France and was gassed in the trenches at Arras. Following his recovery, he was sent to the Near East and saw action in Greece, Palestine and Egypt. On 1 April 1918 [RAF formed on this date], he was commissioned into the RAF, where he finished his military career on 7 November 1919 with the rank of Captain. Following his demobilisation, Captain MacGregor did not spend time at home in Scotland but sailed on the RMS Cedric, bound for New York. His first job was in the movies at the Lasky Studio. However, he struggled to settle and by the spring of 1921 was found to be working in a gold mine in Alaska. It was here that he took up training to become an accountant. In 1922, he set off to California and settled in San Francisco, where he met his wife. They went on to have five children and finally settled in Connecticut, where they lived until their deaths: Captain MacGregor’s in July 1963. He only returned to Scotland twice, once in 1928, so that his parents could meet their granddaughter, and again in 1933 on the death of his mother.

Mackay, Alastair Sutton, was born 7 December 1889. Before joining the Commission he saw previous service with ‘S.B.D (London)’ from May 1910 until July 1912. He joined the Commission on 16 July 1912 as Assistant Clerk on a sal­ary of £65, and was killed in action on 29 April 1915 during the second battle of Ypres. There is a gravestone in a cemetery at Rosskeen, Ross & Cromarty which tells of a family ravaged by tragedy. The stone was raised by William and Flora Mackay of High Street, Invergordon to commemorate “Our dear children”. After Alastair’s death in 1915, his brother Falconer died at the Northern Infirmary in 1919 as a result of wounds received at Arras two years earlier. Falconer was 23 years old. The stone also commemorates their sister, Agnes, who died in 1923. Their parents survived them all. 2113 Alastair Sutton Mackay served with ‘A’Coy, 9th Battalion The Royal Scots and is commemorated on the Menin Gate, one of four memorials to the missing located in the Ypres salient. The Menin Gate bears over 54,000 names. Alastair was originally interred at Hooge Cemetery near Ypres. The cemetery was subsequently destroyed in a bombardment, and his remains lost.

Captain Mackenzie was born in 1882, and was educated at Cargilfield and Fettes College, Edinburgh, and at Balliol College, Oxford.

Mackenzie plunged in and held him up till they were got out with ropes. http://lsars.org.uk/bronz15s.htm   Kenneth Mackenzie, born March 1882, son of J.O. Mackenzie of Dolphinton, Lanarkshire, was educated at Fettes, and from 1901 to 1905 at Balliol. He was a strong and big man, and in 1905 threw the hammer for Oxford against Cambridge. He was gifted with a friendly disposition and overflowing good-nature, having a good word for everybody, and everybody a good word for him. He was happy in College, and was an influence for goodwill and harmony. Although he was a slow worker and an unready writer, he had far more native sense and knowledge than he could express on paper. After leaving Oxford he studied Law and became a Writer to the Signet in 1909, joining a family firm, and he gave much time to public work in Lanarkshire, of which he was a J.P., and to all duties connected with his property. In October 1914 he got a commission in the Royal Scots, becoming Captain in August 1915. In December 1914 he rescued one of his corporals from drowning in Leith docks, having kept him afloat for a long time before help came; for this he received the Humane Society’s medal. In the winter of 1917-18 he was Commandant of a Brigade School for non-commissioned Officers. In the spring of 1918 he went to France, and on August 27, 1918, he fell while leading his Company to victory after a strenuous four days’ fight.

MacPherson, James H.C., Pte. [in error as MacPherson, James A.C.] (INNERLEITHEN) Royal Scots. 1918. August 11 (Sunday). Hamish (James) Macpherson was employed with Messrs Harrison & Co., Chambers Street, Edinburgh, Wholesale Tweed Warehousemen. He joined the Ninth Royal Scots on the 12th August, 1914, and was thus one of those brave Tweeddale men who counted it honour to fight for the Motherland in the very beginning. He went out to France with his battalion in February 1915, and was wounded in July 1915. After a few weeks in Hospital he rejoined his regiment and was with them until he received his second wounds at Arras, in April 1917. Being badly wounded in both legs he was sent back to Britain. On the 6th of March 1918 he returned to France, and at the Base was transferred to the sixth Royal Scots. He was killed on a Sunday morning, 11th August, 1918, at Parvillers near Roye. He was a fine lad. His principal recreation was football. He was engaged to be married, and had he been spared would have married at Christmas 1918. His twenty-fourth birthday was on the 31st July, a few days before he fell.

The Scotsman 6 Oct 15 MacPHERSON, JOHN COOK: 2nd Lieutenant, 3rd Battalion (attd. 1st Battalion) Gordon Highlanders; son of Rev. R. Macpherson, D.D.; born Elgin, 30 January 1886; graduated M.A. and LL.B., 1910; Hunter Medal in Roman Law; Gladstone Memorial Prize. At the outbreak of war he was in Edinburgh where he was engaged in the Solicitor’s Department of the North British Railway Company. During his student days he was a Private in “U” Company, Gordon Highlanders and in September 1914, although his health had never been robust, he enlisted in the 9th Battalion Royal Scots and went to France with his regiment early in 1915. Shortly afterwards he was commissioned to the 11th Battalion and attached to the 3rd Battalion Gordon Highlanders. After further training he was attached to the 1st Battalion of the regiment and was serving with them in France when he was killed in action, leading the remnant of his Company at the third attempt to get through the wire entanglement during the severe fighting at Loos, 25 September 1915. His personality was one of unusual charm, and his kindly and genial manner had gained for him a wide circle of friends. In literature and art he took a keen interest, and was Editor of “Alma Mater”. A slightly dilettante attitude concealed to some extent his more solid characteristics, but the war swept aside what was never more than an attractive pose and brought out the true nature of the man. By his friends, Macpherson will be remembered as an example of the best type which the Scottish Universities produce.

Mather, Thos B    4254 – Mather, Thomas Blackshaw Pte 4254 9RS d.24.8.16 age 24 Tom was the youngest son of Richard Mather, landlord of the Commercial Hotel in Stockport. Tom’s parents are thought to have divorced and Mrs Mather had remarried – to a Major Rawlinson, The Grove, Shaw Heath, who raised Tom as his stepson. There were two older brothers – Dick and Eddie. Tom worked for the Manchester and Liverpool District Bank until he enlisted into the army. At the time, he was living in Congleton and enlisted there. After he had been killed, a friend wrote home “Almost immediately after writing my last letter, we were warned to go up to the line again, where we spent another four days in the trenches. I am sorry to say that these were four too many for Tom Mather, as he went west on the first day, August 24. I have not his mother’s address so you might convey my deepest sympathy through the Sprostons. He was hit in the head with shrapnel and I am told he never regained consciousness, so he did not suffer.” Whilst his friend may have accurately described how Tom met his death, the Battalion was actually away from front line duty from the middle of August until the end of September. It’s War Diary records that, on the 24 August, it was in billets at the French town of Armentieres. The men undertook training and also provided working parties (in effect working as labourers). Perhaps the friend was hoping to convey an impression that Tom had met a death in combat rather than, as probably happened, being killed by a stray shell. http://www.stockport1914-1918.co.uk/soldier.php?name_id=1718 – VM&BWM MIC – KIA 24.8.16.

They wanted this to be a place where children from the overcrowded tenements could find freedom and fresh air, just as James had loved the hills and fresh air: on his holidays he would cycle with a home-made tent to the Cairngorms, where his parents also erected a stone memorial which stands in the Abernethy Forest off a road from Boat of Garten to Nethy Bridge.

This also goes through to NOV https://www.yell.com/biz/forth-valley-engineering-ltd-broxburn-7315028/ – WILLIAM MAY 1895 -1918            William May was 23 when faced with Conscription in 1916 after the introduction of the Military Service Act forced all men between 18 and 41 into the Army. William was a member of the International Bible Students Association, now the Jehovahs’ Witnesses, a sect that held a longstanding opposition to war, and it was this Christian belief that inspired him to become a Conscientious Objector. Unusually for a Firs World War CO, William had volunteered for military service before the war, and had spent four years in the 9th Batallion of the Royal Scots. It is likely that after his time in the Army, William either converted or reaffirmed his faith as IBSA members believed that they should endeavour to be “separate from the world”, and that this meant that they could not follow any civil law that contradicted religious law – especially military service. William took this stand to his local Tribunal in Arbroath, where he was granted Exemption from Combatant Service (ECS) only, the most common verdict given to COs by Tribunals, and one that William, along with thousands of others, rejected. Accepting ECS would mean accepting conscription and being sent to the Army as a soldier – albeit in a non-combatant role. William’s faith meant that he could not accept any position in the military and so he decided to refuse orders, knowing that punishment would result. It did on the 19th of June 1916 when he faced a court martial in Hamilton barracks and was sentenced to four months hard labour. Out of the hands of the military, William was sent to Barlinnie Prison, where his sentence was brought to an end by a Central Tribunal hearing on the 31st of August. The Central Tribunal met in prisons in England, Scotland and Wales to hear the cases of COs imprisoned for military offences, not to grant them exemption, but to judge whether or not they were suitable for the Home Office Scheme (HoS). A favourable verdict from the Central Tribunal – which William received – would see a CO transferred to the HoS and out of prison, put to work in one of the many labour camps set up for COs around the country. William was transferred out of prison and onto the HoS in November 1916, and was sent initially to Wakefield, before he was moved to a HoS camp closer to home, in Broxburn, West Lothian. He stayed at Broxburn Camp until mid 1918 when, with decreasing restrictions on the employment of Conscientious Objectors, he was transferred to what was known as “exceptional employment” at the shale works, for increased pay, in marginally normal conditions. It was at the shale works that he had a fatal accident while working with the railway wagons that accompanied the shale processing plant. He was found dead on October 2nd 1918. William, along with 69 of the more than 100 Conscientious Objectors who died during the First World War is commemorated on the Conscientious Objector memorial plaque, today hanging in the offices of the Peace Pledge Union. His name is engraved under the phrase “It is by the faith of the idealist that the ideal comes true”, which stands as a testament to the aims and purpose of all those who resisted, and resist, war. http://www.menwhosaidno.org/men/men_files/m/may_william.html

British War and Victory Medals (2.

‘David Campbell, eldest son of William Campbell MacEwen, W.S. and Margaret Croall was born on October 20th, 1885. He was a Writer to the Signet when the war began in August 1914. He was very anxious to join the army but owing to his defective sight, did not obtain his commission in the 9th Battalion, The Royal Scots until 14th December 1915. David went to France on August 1st, 1916 and joined his battalion. It formed part of the 51st (Highland Territorial) Division which was taking part in the operations on the Somme. In November he went through the successful action at Beaumont Hamel, which was stormed and captured. In this, his Division, composed entirely of Scottish troops, took the leading part.
It was in the early morning of 9th April 1917 whilst leading his Platoon against the German trenches in the assault which opened the Battle of Arras that he was mortally wounded. He was taken to the Casualty Clearing Station at Aubigny ten miles from Arras where he passed away on April 10th. He was buried in the little communal cemetery at Aubigny on 13th April.
His life long friend who was with David during his last two months of service writes: “David was a born Highlander and held it to be a privelege that his service in the Army should be in a Highland Battalion. Of an exceptional cheerful temperment he attracted all who met him and had many friends in civil life. In the Army he was the same. It seemed as if not even the most rying of war conditions could damp his natural good spirits. They carried him through to the last and won for him a deep friendship with his brother officers and his own men. 
As a soldier he showed splendid nerve and a fine example of fearlessness. It was typical of him that at the times his men were exposed to dangers he was always with them and refused to take advantage of any shelter which they could not share.’ DNW Auction – Wrote to parents Tom W Brown (qv) – See also MacEwen, D.C.

Sjt Piper 9RS 350586 15Star France 24.2.15 MIC [See also MACKINLAY and MCKINLAY] – A fair number of newspaper articles mention him playing at various events in the Borders of Scotland in 1916.  They specifically state that he was Pipe-Major of the 3/9th Bn. Royal Scots and that matches the recorded whereabouts of the 3/9th Bn according to the Long, Long Trail.
A couple of newspaper editions mentioning him as 3/9th:-
Southern Reporter editions of 6th January 1916 and 2nd March 1916 (there are also more).  The newspaper articles all have his surname recorded as McKinley.
(I also searched under McKinlay but did not find any articles)

He was discharged from the army on 4th February 1919.
However, his medal index card records that he disembarked for theatre of war on 24th February 1915. That matches the movements of the 1/9th Bn. Royal Scots.
So at some stage between February 1915 and January 1916 he was transferred from the 1/9th Bn to the 3/9th Battalion, Royal Scots. Scotsman and EEN 27.9.15 Sergt 2541 M’Kinley wounded Apr-May 15. Pipe-Major Charles McKinlay record of birth in the ‘Scotland’s People’ website.   He was born in South Leith in 1888.  From the attestation papers of John Dickson McKinlay (qv) there is mention that his brother Charles subsequently became a fireman in Leeds, England.  The free England birth/death/marriage website contains an entry for the death of a man called Charles McKinlay in Leeds in 1949 aged 60.  That’s a good match in name/place/age but not confirmed. On Ancestry tree he became a Police Constable in Leeds and there is actually mention of him having served in the 9th Royal Scots in the records of the Leeds Police. Died on 20th June 1949 in Leeds.   One of those indexing him also states that he became Chief Officer of the Leeds Fire Brigade between 1929 and 1941. Ancestry Newspaper archives contain quite a few mentions of Charles McKinlay as a police officer and as head of the Fire Brigade in Leeds, including a 1949 article regarding his death.

McKinnon, Ian C., A/Sgt 961 – Sergeant Ian C McKinnon, 9th Royal Scots (Dandy Ninth), a native of Cramond Parish, was another well-known member of the Club. He died at his home, 28 Queen’s Avenue, Blackhall, on 14 September 1916. His brother was Lance Corporal A A McKinnon, 18th Royal Scots, who had been Headmaster of Longridge Public School. Sergeant McKinnon set out for France at the end of February 1915. He took part in the memorable battles for Ypres, at Hooge, St Jean, Zillebeke, and Middlemarcke, where he was wounded on 22 April 1915. He was taken to Netley Hospital, Southampton, where he was found to be wounded in the spine, and remained there till February 1916. He was then removed to Dalmeny Hospital (4 miles from home) and stayed there till he was taken home a week before his death. He served 12 years in the 9th Royal Scots. His father served 38 years as a Volunteer and Territorial, and he had two brothers serving with the colours. He was a special golfer and footballer, a member of the Cramond Brig and Civil Service Golf Clubs and, being a scratch player, he won many trophies. He represented Civil Service in the semi-final of the Dispatch Trophy in 1914. He was Captain of the Civil Service Strollers FC, and was well known in Whitburn and in his native parish of Cramond. Prior to the war he was employed as a Civil Servant in the Register General’s Office, Edinburgh. The funeral which was a military one took place in Comely Bank Cemetery, Edinburgh. It was accompanied by pipers from the Seaforth Highlanders and a firing party from the 9th Royal Scots. Representatives were present from Edinburgh Celtic Union, The Clan MacKinnon Society, Civil Service and Cramond Brig Golf Club. These bodies also sent wreaths as did Sir James Patten MacDougall, the Registrar General. http://www.scotlandswar.ed.ac.uk/sites/default/files/pdf_Cramond_Golf.pdf0629 –

Before enlisting he was employed as a saddler with Mr Stevenson of Duns.

Milne, John, Pte 1917—April 21. THE Record Office, Hamilton, intimated to Mrs Milne, 137 Broughton Road, Edinburgh, that a notification had been received from the War Office of the death of her son, Private JOHN MILNE, 9th Royal Scots, which occurred in France on the 2lst April 1917. He was killed in action on the date stated, and was buried at a point just south of Fampoux, east of Arras. John Milne was born at 28 Beaverhall Terrace (now called 137 Broughton Road), Edinburgh, on the 31st January 1896, and consequently was just a little over 21 years of age when he fell. He came to Peebles in March 1910, and was an apprentice gardener at Bonnycraig. He knew that he was suffering from consumption when he enlisted, but nothing would deter this gallant boy.

Milroy, E.C. Second-Lieutenant E. C. Milroy, 11th Black Watch. M.A. and B.Sc. ; selected to play for Scotland v. England at Twickenham, March 1910; combined well with his club-mate Henderson, and, in later Internationals, with Bowie ; was long recognised as the best scrum half before the Union crowned him. Sewell, EHD, ‘The Public Schools and the War’ http://www.mocavo.co.uk/The-Windsor-Magazine-an-Illustrated-Monthly-for-Men-and-Women-Volume-Xlii/865421/758 Lieutenant Eric Milroy, Black Watch (Royal Highlanders), was the second son of Alexander MacLeod Milroy, a Bank Agent, and Margaret Walteria Milroy, of 16 Abbotsford Park, Edinburgh. He was born in Edinburgh and died on 18 July, 1916, age 28. His sisters and brother were Jessie, Alexander and Margaret. In the 1901 Census the household also had two Cooks and a Table Maid. He worked as a Chartered Accountant. Between 1910 and 1914, he played 12 times for Scotland, winning three and losing nine. He captained the team of 1914, the last home international before war was declared, and a victory score of 8-0 versus England. The following is from The Rugby Roll of Honour by E.H.D. Sewell, published in 1919: Lieutenant Eric Milroy, M.A., 8th Battalion Black Watch, was reported missing at Longueval, near Delville Wood, on July 18, 1916, aged 28. Born in Edinburgh on December 4, 1887, Milroy was educated at George Watson’s College from 1894-1906, and at Edinburgh University, where he took his M.A. degree, from 1906-10. He was in his School XV in 1905-6 as scrum-half, having as partners T. C. Bowie and J. Pearson. He gained the Watsonian Medal for combined scholarship and athletics. According to the excellent custom in vogue in Scotland, he did not play for his University, but for his School’s Former Pupils club namely, the Watsonians. He was the Watsonians’ scrum-half from the season 1906-7 to that of 1913-14, having as partners in turn D. A. Foulis, J. Y. Henderson, and T. C. Bowie. Milroy played twelve times for Scotland, including the “riot” match on the Parc des Princes, Paris, in 1913; and he went with Dr. R. S. Smyth’s team to South Africa in 1910, but owing to illness played only thrice. His fine play and qualities fully entitled him to the honour of being Captain of the Scottish XV in the last International match played before the war, that at Inverleith in March 1914, which was one of the greatest games of the greatest series in Rugby history, and was just won by England. On the out-break of war Milroy was very soon making his way into the fighting line, as he joined the 9th Royal Scots in September 1914; received his commission in the 11th Black Watch, then in training at Nigg, Ross-shire; went to France on October 1, 1915; and was there drafted to the 8th Black Watch, and promoted Lieutenant in June 1916. Milroy was the best scrum-half Scotland had since poor “Nimmo” E. D. Simson, and one of the very best, because he recognized to the full the needs of the “open” game, and did not believe Rugby football to be a game for the amusement and exercise of forwards only. Probably his best partner was the late J. Y. Henderson, whose departure for India was a great blow to Scottish Rugby, then badly off for class players behind the scrum.

He was born in 1887 and entered George Watson’s College in 1895. He was distinguished at School alike by his ability as a scholar, his prowess at Myreside in the 1st XV of 1905-6, and his readiness as a debater in the Literary Society. He also held the rank of Sergeant in the Cadet Corps. The winner of an open bursary at Edinburgh University in 1906, he graduated MA with Honours in Mathematics in 1910, thereafter commencing his apprenticeship as a Chartered Accountant. A brilliant member of the Watsonian XV from 1906 to 1914, he played for Scotland in almost every International Match from 1910 to 1914, and toured with the British Team in S. Africa in 1910. Eric (Puss) Milroy captained the Scottish Rugby Football Team of 1914, playing at scrum half. Having made his debut against Wales on 5 February, 1910, he played his twelfth and last match against England at Inverleith on 21 March, 1914. Scotland won 3 and lost 9 of his twelve matches. Joining the 9th Royal Scots from the Watsonian Military Training Corps in September, 1914, he won speedy promotion, and in January, 1915 was gazetted Second Lieutenant in the 11th Royal Highlanders. In July, 1916 he gained his Lieutenancy and was attached to the 8th Royal Highlanders as Lewis Gun Officer. Crossing to France in 1915, he was engaged in the severe fighting in the Ypres salient. During the battle of the Somme he was posted missing at Delville Wood in July, 1916, and was later presumed killed in action.

Norman McRury is in Unic of edin roll as Pipe-Major of the UOTC, that may well be why Morrison instead joined the 9th Royal Scots to become Pipe-Major. On balance probably Pipe Major after Thomas Porteous (1912) and before start of war. Information from Ron Abbott – Neil Morrison was the son of John Morrison of Torinturk and Marion MacVicar. He married Margaret Grant Matheson, daughter of Angus Matheson, in 1918. He died on 23 May 1964. He was educated at Edinburgh University, Edinburgh, Midlothian, Scotland. He was educated at George Watson’s College, Edinburgh, Midlothian, Scotland. He was a practising solicitor. He gained the rank of Captain in the Queen’s Own Cameron Highlanders.

MORTON, John Sydney, 2nd Lt, 2nd Battalion Royal Scots (Lothian Regiment), was the second son of John Morton, J.P., Blackhall, Midlothian.  Born at St. Hilliers, Kilmarnock, 24th November, 1895, he was for three years a pupil at Kilmarnock Academy , afterwards attending the Edinburgh College of Arts. He was an architect’s apprentice and one of the most brilliant students of his year at college.

From February, 1915, he served in France and Flanders, taking part in the second battle of Ypres, the fighting at St. Eloi, and other engagements. He was killed by a shell on 25th April, 1917, at Monchy-le-Preux during the second battle of Arras .
