Secondary Regiment: Royal Defence Corps
Secondary Unit Text: transf. to (27937)

Additional information: Husband of Elizabeth Mabon Bisset, of West End, Kilconquhar, Fife.

Thought I would have a go at one or two. I cannot find 3/AM on the Scoonie memorial. Was it somewhere else?

On the Gourdon War Memorial, there is ASTC behind 2 of the servicemens names. One being Davidson D and the other is Ritchie D. Both WWI entries.

Davidson D served in the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, but I can't find an entry for Ritchie D to see if he also served in A+SH.

TIA
Shona
