 Thank you very much everyone.  I looked up the valuation rolls  in World's End for my George Mcwatt but he had moved on . So I looked in 24 Grace St which is the next address I have and he had already moved there by 1855. So many thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

Oh that's interesting. How did you find this information?  It's always good to find new sources or ways to use old ones. Barbara

Could anyone please give me an idea where Worlds End Barony was (or is?) . I am tracing the homes of my gg grandfather who lived at number 23 World's End in 1851. I have tried looking at some old maps but my knowledge of the geography of Glasgow is so poor that I am getting  nowhere. Any help gratefully received!!  Barbara

It might possibly be Wickam in Berkshire ? I suppose Berks and Bucks might sound the same to a stranger.

Thank you so much for your help . All is explained. Well nearly! Barbara

Thank you everyone for all your input.

 MaxD --there are two different cards for Harry Pellant in the International PWA The first  one is for Pellant Harry O and the other Pellant O H One card comes under the Pegram etc index and one card under Pell etc. Not sure why! I hope this makes sense? Barbara

name   H O Pellant   68950  7 R Fusrs 

The details above and below him are for men at Cambrai same date 24 /3 /18 which was where a relative thought he was wounded.

The date stamp at the top of this form is 20 AOU 1918- don't understand this either (as see below)
he was repatriated wounded from Germany 2 June 1918 with a shoulder injury

Thank you very much . I guessed most of it but it is easy to make guesses and go off at a tangent.
I wanted to be clear as the relevant column for 5 a/b says St Simon  24 /3 /18  and (c) Kohle West Front. and I can't find a reference to St Simon. Any ideas where to look next?
