Short Service Attestation - John Armstrong Scott
« on: Sunday 31 December 17 12:56 GMT (UK) »
Hi I am looking for some help and guidance

I am searching for information on a John Armstrong Scott who was born
in St Pancras in 1880. His father David Scott came from Perth, Scotland

I have come across a Short Service Attestation dated 16th December 1897
This appears to relate to him enlisting in either the Royal Scots Greys or Dragoons of the Line

I can not find any other informaton whatsoever ideally I would like to know
Where he served?
How long he served for?
and find his Service Record?

Very grateful for any help

Did you read all six pages of the Attestation?

The 3rd, 4th & 5th pages give details of his service.
