T. SCOTT.

(This is one of the most sad stories I have found during my many years of research)

Thomas Scott age 28 Private (9605) Scots Guards.
Thomas was a stone mason and was working in Edinburgh when he enlisted in August 1914. He was at Wellington Barracks in London when his daughter was born in New Cove, Cockburnspath, Berwickshire in December 1914 and he joined the 2nd Scots Guards in France in February 1915. He served throughout the war and was with the 1st Scots Guards when he was granted leave as his daughter Thomasina, aged almost 4, had died of influenza on 11 November 1918. Thomas contracted the same illness and died at New Cove just over two weeks later.

Born 1890 in Galashiels, Selkirkshire.
In 1901 Thomas, age 10, and his family were in Melrose and from 1904 the family were at Valley View, Gattonside, Melrose.
Son of Andrew and Agnes (Nichol) Scott of Victoria Street, Galashiels.
Husband of Elizabeth (Mills) Scott of Cove Farm, Cockburnspath who he married in 1917 in Cockburnspath.
Died on Service on 22 November 1918 and buried in Cockburnspath Parish Churchyard, Berwickshire. (CWG)
Also named on the Gattonside Village War Memorial, on the Melrose War Memorial, on the Free Church memorial in Melrose and on the Galashiels War Memorial.
