Great. So he was a Private in the King's Own Scottish Borders.
In the 7 8th Battalion his Regimental Number was 29939.
He enlisted at Hawick, Roxburgh, which maybe where his brothers enlisted too.

Yes that's right  :)
And yes I have found William and his family (sorry should've said that earlier) it's the other brothers really for more information. Brilliant help though so far thank you.

Mmm that's strange about John isn't it? I wonder where he went to then??
Maybe I should put the photo on the Armed Forces part to identify any further details on the uniforms??
Thank you for the information very kind of you and helpful.
