SSgt W McKelvie served at HQ Anti Aircraft Ordnance Area at Kirkliston near Edinburgh prior to being posted to the Advanced ordnance Depot in Egypt. He had only been in Egypt for about 6 weeks before his death. His name does not pop up in the RAOC records as serving in WW2 but that doesn't mean he didn't.

Kirkliston was a small stores depot holding Anti Aircraft stores for the AA Command gun positions across Scotland.

Wow thank you for latest information

The limited knowledge we have it was believed he served in World War II but I shall try to confirm.
