ALLISON, Samuel Sergt. Gordon Highlanders

Samuel was listed on the New Monkland Parish Church Roll of Honour in Glenmavis, Airdrie as Lance-Corporal Samuel Allison, 8th Batt. Gordon Highlanders. (Source: Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser 23/1/1915)

He is named on the Edrom Parish War Memorial in Berwickshire but as yet I don't know why!

PRIVATE SAMUEL ALISON, GORn. H.
Note: All records spell the name as Allison.
Samuel Allison age 24 Lance Sergeant (1697) 8th Battalion, Gordon Highlanders.
Samuel landed with his battalion at Boulogne in May 1915 but he was killed four months later during the battle of Loos.
Born 1891 in Lochrutton, Kirkcudbrightshire. Son of the late Margaret (Ross) Allison (died 1891) and of Joseph Allison, and step-son of Agnes (Barbour) Allison who married Joseph in 1891 in Dalton, Dumfriesshire.
In 1901 the family were in Lindores, Fife where Joseph was a coachman and in 1911 he and Agnes were in Port of Mentieth but by 1915 they were at 23 Commonside Street in Airdrie, New Monklands where Joseph was a carter. Samuel and his brother Joseph were railway platelayers at Luib Station in Perthshire in 1911 but his whereabouts after 1911 are not known. He did enlist in Berwick so it can be assumed that he was employed in the Edrom area.
Missing in Action on 25 September 1915 and named on the Loos Memorial,, France.
