Help with deciphering where served
« on: Wednesday 31 October 18 22:03 GMT (UK) »
Hi

Was wondering if anyone can help with deciphering where and when my great uncle served in the Royal Scots.

Thanks

I think that  the WW1 experts might be able to say where in France his regiment would have been at the above dates.

Picking up the ball from Gadget's kick off.  We need to know which battalion he served with.  This will be on another sheet of his record.  If this record is on line, let us know his number and name and we'll see what can be done.

Grabbing Gadget's ball from MaxD he was in the Royal Scots Fusiliers which is a different Regiment from the Royal Scots (Lothian).
The 2nd. Batt. were in Gib & returned home on the dates given.
LLT says this:
August 1914 : in Gibraltar. Returned to England, landing September 1914, and came under orders of 21st Brigade, 7th Division.
Landed at Zeebrugge on 6 October 1914.
19 December 1915 : transferred with Brigade to 30th Division.
19 December 1915 : transferred to 90th Brigade in same Division.

Well, that seems to have sorted it Jim  :)

I was going to look for more identification on the image and then chase up but you seem to have discovered it.

Although he did his full 12 years I notice he had service deducted for going awol in 1909. It wasn't as uncommon as you might think.
When did he get wounded I can't quite make out the date.

Fine team work as usual.  However, from the Eeyore corner, it would still be worth seeing the details of his war service.  He seems to have spent three separate periods in France which may indicate that he didn't serve throughout with the2nd Battalion or indeed throughout with the RSF.  Need to see the statement of service though!
