Named on a family grave in Castle Douglas
http://scottishwargraves.phpbbweb.com/scottishwargraves-ftopic304-0-asc-45.html

WILLIAM MILLAR DOUGLAS – age 28 – Second Lieutenant: 5th Battalion, King's Own Scottish Borderers.
William was a member of the London Galloway Association and had been employed as a clerk in Parr's Bank in Regent Street, London since 1906 when he enlisted as Private (2073) in the 1/4th (Ross Highland) Battalion, Seaforth Highlanders. He landed with his battalion at Le Have in November 1914 but was wounded in January 1915. He returned to his unit in July but was wounded again in September. While recovering he was recommended for officer training and was commissioned in the KOSB in September 1916.
(Source: D&G Standard 1/5/1915 p.3 & 1/9//1917 p.3, Medal Roll/Card, RBS Remembers, 1911 census and London Gazette 3/10/1916 p.9567)
Born 1889 at Islington, London. (Source: GRO – Birth Index, 1901 and 1911 census)
Son of Robert and Mary (Millar) Douglas of Islington, London, of Ashmount, Lockerbie and of St. Ninian's, Castle Douglas.
(Source: 1901 census and family grave in Castle Douglas Cemetery)
Grandson of the late Alexander Douglas of Mid-Kelton, Castle Douglas.
(Source: D&G Standard 1/9//1917 p.3)
Missing in Action – 19 August 1917.
Commonwealth War Grave – Tyne Cot Memorial.

I can only assume that the 5th KOSB was notional as the battalion were in Palestine in 1917 and didn't move to France until April 1918.
It's also the first time I've heard of Parr's Bank!
William Millar Douglas is on the RBS Roll of Honour.
