WW1
ROYAL SCOTS
Alexander Faunt

Also listed on the St Marys parish church, Haddington memorial.

(Glasgow Herald 8th March 1915)
"Information has been received by Mr Harry Faunt, Millwright, Haddington, that his youngest son, Private Alexander Faunt, a member of the machine gun section of the 8th Royal Scots (Territorials) has been killed in France. In a letter dated March 1, conveying the news, Captain McEwen writes that a chance shot struck the roadway close to a group of men who were watching the German shells bursting round a church some distance away. They had lost a good comrade - one who looked after the gun and the men under his care with the greatest faithfulness. They had just buried him in the churchyard, which was being shelled an hour before, and some of his old chums were busy preparing a cross for his grave. They were the leaving the village in an hour for other quarters, but, Captain McEwen wrote, but would if possible see that the dead soldier's parents got a photograph of the church someday. Private Faunt was 22 years of age and a member of Haddington Rugby Football Club."

The sculptor Charles Pilkington D'or Jackson's business papers are lodged in the National Library, Edinburgh, Accesssion Number 7445. In Box 2, File 64 there are sketches made by Jackson of the bronze panels for the Haddington memorial including one of the goat and vine motif which is part of the coat of arms. There is no confirmation the work went ahead within the file but I thought it likely Jackson was responsible for the bronze work.

WW1
ARTILLERY
Bombr. J. Smith, R.F.A.

Possibly one of the three James Smith's on Stirling memorial? would need to see entry in Stirlign RoH to confirm.

(Glasgow Herald 26th June 1915)
"Bombardier James Smith, Royal Field Artillery, eldest son of Mr Cornelius Smith, Vetch Park, Haddington, has succumbed in Brighton Military Hospital to injuries he received about three months ago while training in the south of England. He was riding a horse, whoch bolted, and being unsaddled he was dragged along the ground by the stirrups for a considerable distance. Both legs were broken, and it became necessary to amputate one. He was 31 years of age, and before enlistment was a draper in Stirling."
