Lieutenant Colonel Douglas-Hamilton VC remains found?

The Sunday Times reports that the remains of a lost First World War hero who won the Victoria Cross may have been found almost 100 years after he was killed defending British lines on the western front.

On 25/26 September 1915 during operations on Hill 70, in France, Lieutenant Colonel Douglas-Hamilton's actions led to a posthumous Victoria Cross being awarded.

I do not have a copy of the article to provide further details. Perhaps someone else can provide the details?

Making conections

The more information you can give about the people you mention, the more chance there is of someone else connecting with your family.

Dates and places of births, deaths and marriages all help to place families.

Professions also help.

'My great-grandmother mother was a Douglas from Montrose' does not give many clues to follow up! But a bit of flesh on the bones makes further research possible. But if we are told who she married, what his profession was and where the children were baptised, then we can get to work.

Maybe it is time to update the information in your profile?
