DUNFERMLINE SOLDIERS KILLED.
Private Andrew Williamson, Royal Engineers, whose father is Mr Alexander Williamson, retired colliery manager, 126 Appin Crescent, Dunfermline, has been killed in France.
An elder brother. Lance-Corporal James Williamson, also of the Royal Engineers, conveys the sad tidings in a letter to his father. Private Williamson was killed instantaneously while leaving the "sap" with a comrade, who was also killed.
The brothers enlisted together in November, 1915, and after a fortnight's training were sent with a draft to the front. Before enlisting the deceased was employed as a miner at the Aitken Pit, Kelty. He leaves a widow and five children, residing at Manse Road, Kelty.
Another soldier to lay down his life, Private James Wood, 1st. Cameron Highlanders, whose parents reside at Downieville Crescent, Dunfermline. He was officially reported missing on 11th November, 1914, but a communication has now been received to the effect that he must be presumed to have been killed.
Private Wood was a reservist, and prior to the war was engaged at Rosyth Naval Base. He was wounded on 14th September, but soon recovered.
Dundee Courier 15 January 1916


Note I can find James Wood on this memorial but Andrew Williamson does not appear on either Dunfermline or Kelty
