Are there any living relatives of Corporal James Robb who was killed in action in Mesopotamia/Iraq in January 1916? He was from Elgin and was in the 1st battalion Seaforth Highlanders?

I'd imagine the best way to find out is to write a letter to the local newspaper. Posting on a few more genealogy and history websites wouldn't hurt either.

Good luck!
Derek.

Thank you very much for your quick reply.

I looked up the website of the Northern Scot newspaper but I couldn't see where I could post to the letters section online (I live in Manchester so can't buy the paper) so I emailed the editor, I hope he can help me.

Best wishes

Marion
