George Elder has been the subject of discussion on the Great War Forum a few years back: https://www.greatwarforum.org/topic/203842-george-elder-ww1-hamilton-academy-war-memorial-lanarkshire/ and it appears he may well have survived the war, possibly dying in Carluke in 1972. The thread also showcases the excellent work done by the school to investigate the background to all the WW1 casualties https://hamilton.s-lanark.sch.uk/our-school/memorial-art-project/
