His next of kin would be on his attestation papers so it may be that his record survived the bombing in WW2. In addition his wounding may have been published in a local newspaper along with details such as son of Mr & MRs So and so, or his siblings.

FindMyPast don't cross refer a detail from one type of record to another so the nok detail would have been on whatever the "wounding record" referred to was.

Would you like to give a link to the record?

It is with great difficulty I share with you that in the early hours of 07 August 2021, Maximilian passed away unexpectedly but peacefully.

With deep sadness,

Hi Max
          sorry i gave the wrong info the record was from forces war records
not find my past after looking closer i think the source for it
came from the national library scotland,
i ve searched the library and cant find any reference to it
i may have to pay a visit to their reading room,
they re is also a reference to a war office list 5556 
whatever that is,
 thank you Max

Hi Crumblie
 his service records did nt survive, but have found lots info on him
with the help of Max and others,
the soldier in question is John Mackay 9488 2nd and 7th seaforth highlanders,
his parents died before he enlisted around 1906 going by his service number
all of his siblings we know where they were located all bar one sister
none where in broxburn, what i was hoping for was seeing his next of kin
was listed as broxburn perhaps where that piece of info came from
might have more detail of who and where that next of kin was.
and due to my experience on here if anyone knows where to find the source
you lads would

I think we found before that he was wounded in March 1918.  The reference to NLS and the "5556" makes it almost certain that this is a reference to the daily casualty list No 5556 that was issued in the newspapers around May 1918 (I am tracking it down).
These lists put the name of the soldier's residence (as far as the army knew it) in brackets after his name.  There are no nok details.

Back when I track the list down, that period had enormous lists with the casualties mostly from the Mar 1918 German Spring Offensive.

List 5556 starts here: courtesy NLS

I'll leave it to you to find him.

Should have added - Forces War Records is not correct if it gives that as his nok residence.
