Very interesting. Would that have meant that he was from Jamaica? Or was he sent there? Sorry for the seemingly silly questions, I'm not wised up on this at all!

Thank you for your help!

There is a death for James Gardiner McPherson in Hemsworth in 1969.  Born 4 October 1908. There's a possible matching birth in Edinburgh.

There's also a record of a British Army marriage in Jamaica on Christmas Day in 1938 -  James Gardiner McPherson and Nina Ann McDermott.

I had some spare credits :)
The birth registration on Scotlands people confirms that date of birth - also father John.
Mother Jessie Emslie Gardiner.

No, he was a British RAMC soldier based there.
