If access could be gained and time taken to take individual photos of the men that would be a great resource.

These premises on City Road , St Andrews , in Fife are now the Tayforth Universities O T C

[Hi can anyone help me? I am the great niece of Archibald Rankin Macdonald featured in this picture. My Grangfather is the sole survining member of Archies family - he is his youngest brother and Archie was killed 2 days before my grandfather was born. He has never seen a picture of his brother and it would mean a great deal to me if anyone can help me get a copy of this photo. I would love him to finally see his brother, he has only visted his grave, in St Omer I think.

many thanks

Clare

Capt. William Alexander Gibb Stevenson, 14th Bn HLI 'B' Coy.

Please also see:
http://warmemscot.s4.bizhat.com/viewtopic.php?t=2902

I'm in Texas and cannot make it very easily to see this memorial to the OTC.

Is it possible that someone who lives in or around St Andrews could take individual pictures of all these brave men?

I'm sure the families would love to have a 'keepsake'.

Kindest Regards,
Tom Lang.
