Every time I look at the figure it makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end.

Just a wee boy.

The paperwork was his service record and the district was a bit unclear to me.
Thanks for the replies.

Joseph Byers who was shot at Dawn was not the 16/17 year old from Dumfries identified in the book 'Shot at Dawn'. We still don't know who he was or where he came from.

See http://warmemscot.s4.bizhat.com/viewtopic.php?t=8817 for a full explanation
