Hi
Looking for info/records for the above and can find nothing on Ancestry. He was born in Edinburgh probably around 1915. Sorry I have no more than this

As he was born in Edinburgh I looked at the indexes of Scotlands People, which are free to search. 

Found a birth and a death for John Nicol Sandilands Reid, both events happening in Edinburgh.

Birth of John N Sandilands Reid
in 1914
in Morningside ( an area of Edinburgh on the south of the city)

Death of John Nicol S Reid
in 1971
aged 57
in Newington ( an area of Edinburgh, also on the south of the city)

For 6 credits ( about 1.50 ) you will be able to view online the original birth certificate. If you want the information contained on the death certificate you'll  have to buy it. Death Certs can only be viewed online if they occurred more than 50 years ago and 1971 is still a few years short.

SO you might want to buy some Scotlands People credits and get the birth certificate information.

Hope this is of some help.

Good luck with it.

Anne

ps I wrote all this a couple of hours ago in a reply which I thought I'd posted here BUT it disappeared and I've no idea where to!!!  I'll do my best to hit 'post' now!!

As Nanny jan said his army records will still be with the MOD.  There are websites that indicate they may have more information than Cathy has given but don't waste your money on them.
