Walter McFarlane Coulter, who appears to have been born in the West Indies, is also commemorated on Poloc Cricket Club Memorial, Glasgow. I don't think this is recorded with the project;

http://www.poloc.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=27&Itemid=31

SUPPLEMENT TO THE LONDON GAZETTE, 26 MARCH, 1917

2nd Lt. Walter McFarlane Coulter, High.L.I.

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion
to duty during a raid on the enemy's
trenches. He led hia men with great dash
and the success of the raid was largely due
to his personal coolness and initiative. He
has on many previous occasions done fine
work.

On Saturday at our Open Day at the Mitchell we had a visit from Jim Hastie of Queen's Park Football Club.
The club will be celebrating its 150th anniversary in 2017 and they are compiling a booklet titled Queen's Park and the Great War see here:- www.queensparkfc.co.uk and hope to have it completed by then.
Jim was wondering if anyone in the SMRG could provide further information on any of the names that appear in the booklet.
If anyone has information could they please post it on this thread and it will be passed on to Jim Hastie or one of his colleagues Frank McCrossan.

On the Soldiers Effects Register the date is a couple of days "off" (31/10/17) but his death is noted to be "after discharge" so I'm pretty sure it is him.
His legatee is his brother Angus.

It certainly is Ken!

I learnt a ton of 'new' stuff researching the above Walter McFarlane Coulter only to find at the end of it ..... it wasn't the Walter Coulter I was looking for!

Still, it's now added to both Queen's Park F.C. and Glasgow High School's threads, so not time gone to waste.
