Keith War Memorial
« on: Thursday 28 April 22 13:52 BST (UK) »
I am searching for information on two brothers, James Scott born 1890 and John Scott born 1892, two of the family of James Scott and his wife Ann Stewart. I have seen two names on the Keith War Memorial,  James Scott and John Scott. Might they have been the two brothers I am looking for?
One of their sisters was Annie Scott who married James Annand in Keith in 1913. James was manager in the Strathisla Distillery. Annie's son was the Revd James Annand, a Church of Scotland clergyman.
Any information would be much appreciated.

Thank you so much - that is the James I was looking for. John was possibly his brother?

John Scott appears to have died in WW2 and was an able seaman if details here are correct
