A collection of historical and genalogical records
I am considering how best to commemorate the fallen from the First World War, and was looking at the scale of the project. The first name that I came across was Rifleman John Sholto Douglas Douglas, who was listed as Alias Watts. Intrigued, I tried to find out more about him.
15881 Rifleman John Sholto Douglas Douglas died in France on 6th October 1918 and is 'Remembered with Honour' in the Grevillers British Cemetery.
Born John Sholto Douglas Watts, in France, he served with 3rd Battalion, New Zealand Rifle Brigade.
He was father of J. S. Watts, of 37, Sale St., Auckland, New Zealand.
Does anyone know anything more of his story?
