Among the business papers of Edinburgh sculptor Alexander Carrick lodged with the National Monument Record of Scotland Office, Edinburgh, Manuscript Collection 22, is a letter dated 23rd January 1923 regarding Carrick's payment for his work on the George Heriot's school memorial which confirms him as the sculptor. There are also many other letters relating to various restoration works he and his men carried out in the school in the 1920's and 30's.

2462 Pte. Alexander Cameron Lindsay
1/9th Battalion Royal Scots (TF)


Alexander Lindsay was born at Edinburgh Scotland on August 18, 1895. He was the son the late William, a Clothier, and Jane Lindsay of 55 Montpelier Park Edinburgh. He was their only son.

Attended Bruntsfield Primary School, and later joined George Heriot's School, on September 27, 1904. He was a ‘Foundationer’, which meant that his fees were paid by the George Harriot's Trust Office, as his father was deceased. Member of the O.T.C Cadet program from 1909-1911, and an agricultural student. He left on July 13, 1911.

Lindsay joined the Royal Scots at Edinburgh on the outbreak of war in August 1914. Arriving with the unit in France in February 1915. The 9th served as a part of the 27th Division, 8th Brigade BEF.

Lindsay was engaged at the Second Battle of Ypres April 22, 1915 where his regiment was heavily involved. They were a member of the famous ‘Geddes Detachment’ that assisted in the attack on Mauser Ridge on April 23, 1915. The 9th Royal Scots are shown as suffering heavily in this assault, those who survived the initial action withdrew due to severe losses.

It was in this action that 19-year-old Alexander Cameron Lindsay was killed in action.

Du Ruvigny’s Memorial book records: ‘…was killed in action during the 2nd Battle of Ypres April 23, 1915, while helping a wounded school fellow after being twice wounded himself. Buried at St. Jean, two and half miles N.E. of Ypres.’

Despite being buried by his pals, Lindsay’s remains were not recovered after the war and his name is therefore commemorated on the Menin Gate Memorial for the missing.

If any members may have further information on Pte. Lindsay I would be very pleased to hear from them.

Thank you,

David

Seeing the reference to Brunstfield school, I wondered if he was perhaps included in the Viewforth church memorial and I checked the website at http://www.viewforth.org/roll/churchmemorials.php but unfortunately the database search no longer works. Sorry if it's not much help but I thought that it might be a lead to follow..............

Very good Paul, and yes it is of course of help and good lead that I hadn't considered yet. Thank you for taking the time point this out.

Kind regards,

David
