WW1 Soldier needs a wee touch up please
« on: Wednesday 02 August 17 13:23 BST (UK) »
Hi folks
I managed to scan an original Photo of one of our Villages WW1 Soldiers, He is. member of the local Argyll and Sutherland highlanders, But unknown , I am going to put the picture on our site to see if anyone recognises the lad.  Just a few scratches need removed.

Many thanks yet again for your support

Despite these being clearly surplus to your needs after Pat's fine work, the attached efforts had to be offered given the possibility that your soldier was a remote kinsman. ;) Cheers, Peter.

I suggest that you forward a copy to the regiment's museum at Stirling Castle

museum@argylls.co.uk

My father was in the Argylls  and when they knew that I had some photos, they actually asked for copies for their collection.
