David Inglis is named on Lanark War Memorial which identifies him as having served with the 6th Bn HLI. I have been unable to find him on the CWGC database.

Pension Papers do exist and are held on Fold 3 which I am unable to access but the on-line cover page states that he lived at Kirkfieldbank, Lanark. Service Number 27205, rank Private, regiment HLI. He was discharged on 10/3/1919 on grounds of disability and died 5/11/1921.

Death Record (Scotland's People) shows he was a House Painter (Army Pensioner) who died at Bellahouston Hospital (residence Kirkfieldbank, Lanark). Died 5/11/1921, aged 33. Cause of Death: Chronic Intestinal Nephritis and Uraemia.

If anyone has access to Fold 3 I'd be grateful if they could check, please, the reason for discharge. I can then decide as to whether to take forward or NFA.

I've got access, I'll send on what I find.

The first item I looked at noted cause of discharge was nephritis and that it was caused by his service.

Mike - I think you man's death falls outside the time limit which I think is 31 August 1921.

Incidentally his Medal Roll shows him as serving with the 16th and 2nd Battalions.

Thanks both. The exclusion date completely slipped my mind!

Close but not close enough.

NFA then.
