A collection of historical and genalogical records
A remarkable artist’s sketch book has come to light in, I think, a house clearance.
I have been researching who the subjects might be and find that they were all in or serving with the Royal Highlanders (Black Watch) in Mesopotamia in 1916.
With a couple of exceptions, those whose portraits I have seen were either killed on wounded.
Embarked, Marseilles, 5th December, 1915.
Disembarked, Basrah, 31st December, 1915.
Wounded in Action, 13th January, 1916.
Reported dangerously ill, 18th January, 1916.
Died from Wounds, 9th February, 1916.
Can anyone identify Lt A. Douglas?
Below, the artist who probably lived in Moniaive, Dumfrieshire.
