Soldiers died in the Great War show Allan Gibbon as

Machine Gun Corps ( Infantry)

Gibbon , Allan , Pte 23313, Born Belhelvis , Aberdeen, enlisted Auchterarder , died of wounds 14 May 1917 F & F formerly 1781 Royal Highlanders


My copy of the Scottish National War Memorial , Edinburgh Castle roll of honour for the Black Watch in the Great War shows :


Black Watch Roll of Honour :

GIBBON, Allan , Born Belhelvis Aberdeen, 1781 , Pte , d of W , F & F, 14 May 1917 . latterly 23313 Machine Gun Corps , Intantry


I see that youve taken the info from the Auchterarder Roll of Honour book so wont cover that again in this entry .
