Well done James. I'm intrigued by the ref. to the RAMC on the Medal Card.
He won't be on SDGW (nor, usually, on SNWM) as he died after the war had ended. I've never been able to get an accurate "cut-off" date but I assume it was 11/11/1918.

Hi Ken

There isn't anything on the rest of the card to reference RAMC so not sure about that.....it looks as if its an entry added later for some reason as it would be in the first or second column of the card.

I agree about the cut off date. Ive come across maybe about half a dozen searches with 2 days over..... 3 days over the 11/11/18. And they aren't on the SDGW data base.

James

The majority of casualties on the memorial can be found using SNWM, CWGC, SDGW, NAVAL-HISTORY.NET @ http://www.naval-history.net/xDKCas1003-Intro.htm Canadian Expeditionary Force @ http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/discover/military-heritage/first-world-war/first-world-war-1914-1918-cef/Pages/search.aspx

These are the ones I cant find a true source of identity for.

Thanks Kenneth

I was going by what was transcribed on the page. I should have checked the photo myself.

My mistake Embarassed

Is this Adam Henderson connected to the Annbank Memorial in any way?

James - been there, done that!

It was only because I'd been caught out on something similar recently that made me go back and look at the memorial photo Wink

As far as a local connection, this might help (but I'm not sure of my geography)

The Edinburgh Gazette
Publication date:28 January 1918 Issue:13200Page:451

7366 Cpl. A. Henderson, Sco. Rif. (Tarbolton).
For conspicuous, gallantly and devotion
to duty. With another man, he reconnoitred
the ground in front of the position for 600
yards, in broad daylight, capturing an enemy
machine gun and killing the team. As the
result of this action the line was advanced
600 yards and the gain consolidated.

Adam's name was added to the Debt of Honour database on Thursday 13th August 2009.

The In From the Cold Project folks might have more details on his history.

I have now amended the transcription from Anderson to Henderson.

Thanks
