Something a little different here, I hope you don't mind me posting it.

R G Thin lived in Chalmers Crescent, Edinburgh when he went off to war serving in Ypres with the Royal Scots and later as an officer with the KOSB in Egypt. He died on 24th June 1969 in Edinburgh.

A family member, Ainslie Thin, had his war diaries and has used extracts from them with photographs to make a 36 page booklet for their family history. I was fortunate enough to be offered a copy to read and found it very rewarding. I have now scanned this to PDF and with the family's permission made it available free for download at http://www.mediafire.com/?zjuiokonzum.

The file is about 10MB so will take about 5 minutes over a broadband connection. Alternatively send me a PM and I will put it on CD.

If anyone does download and read it, perhaps you would be kind enough to leave some feedback here for the family.

Hello Paul

I have just seen this. Was R G Thin Russell G Thin of the well known Edinburgh Bookselling family - father James H Thin? Would it be possible for me to be put in touch with the family to see if the story of the company during WW1 could be included in "Edinburgh's War".
