Notes from a relative :- "His brother William was in the Royal Scots Regt. in the 1914-18 war, he was wounded in action,and died of his wounds, he is buried at Tincourt-Boucly war cemetery near Perrone. My wife and I have visited his grave. He did his basic army training in Mullingar in Ireland, the barracks are still there."

Note from Robert McDermont

Tincourt-Boucly is in France, Flander’s to be precise. The photograph is of his grave, the little black marker in front of it was put there by me on the 80th anniversary of his death. He was wounded attacking the village of Sequhart to the east of T-Boucly, he was taken to the field hospital at T-Boucly where he died of his wounds. The map shows T-Boucly at the top, to the east of Perrone. This is a photograph of him. Reading the first letter it traces his journey from Edinburgh to Ireland, he did all his training in Mullingar in the middle of the country.
