A big thank you to DelBoy for his research and identification of the names.

Note: The service record of Frederick George Wilson, Private (17385) of the Border Regiment has survived and shows his enlistment at Carlisle on 23 December 1914.
It is assumed that he and William Armstrong (17384), Donald Macdonald (17383) and Thomas Macdonald (17386) all enlisted together.
