I was told a story at the 2009 Clan Gathering and would like to learn more about a remarkable character.
James Douglas fought in Armenia, and was taken prisoner by the Russians in the 1st World War. He escaped, but was re-captured and then became part of an exchange for a Russian admiral. At what stage he was awarded the DCM and MM I do not know.
After the war, he became chauffeur for Sir Maxwell Scott at Abbotsford.
Can anyone throw light on…
