PATERSON, W.P.

Named on the Galashiels War Memorial in Selkirkshire as:

CAPT. W. P. PATERSON. King's Own Scottish Borderers
William Paterson Paterson age 21 Captain, 3rd Battalion attached to the 2nd Battalion, King's Own Scottish Borderers.
William had been educated at the Royal High School and the Edinburgh Academy and was serving an apprenticeship at a tweed mill in Galashiels when, as a former cadet in the Officer Training Corps, he gained a commission in the KOSB in August 1914. He went to France as a Lieutenant in February 1915 and was promoted in April 1916. William was killed at Delville Wood on the Somme
Born 1895 in Old Aberdeen. Son of the Rev. William Paterson Paterson, D.D., Professor of Divinity in the University of Edinburgh, and of Jane (Sanderson) Paterson of 3 Royal Terrace, Edinburgh. They had married in 1888 in Galashiels.
Missing in Action on 30 July 1916 and named on the Thiepval Memorial to the Missing of the Somme, France.

I believe that he is also named, together with his brother, on the Royal High School memorial in Edinburgh.
Robert Sanderson Paterson age 21 Second Lieutenant, 62nd Battery, Royal Field Artillery attached to "Chestnut Troop" Royal Horse Artillery.
Killed at the Battle of Neuve Chapelle on 11 March 1915.
Robert is also named on the Fettes College memorial and on the Edinburgh University Roll of the Fallen.

The brothers are named on the family gravestone at Lyne Kirk near Peebles.
