Rosemary Camp contacted me earlier this month when she recognized the name of her great-uncle Charles McDonald in a newspaper clipping included in my post about Pte Arthur B. Colville. Charles and her grandfather Thomas McIlwraith both survived the train crash at Gretna Green on May 22, 1915.
Rosemary believes the two soldiers standing in the 3rd row of this real photo postcard are her grandfather Thomas from Deantown and her great-uncle Charles from Eskside:
In a blog post from February I identified seven other soldiers who I believe are in this photo of the Musselburgh company of the 1/7th Royal Scots. If you have information on any other soldiers in this photograph please do not hesitate to contact me.
