While researching for the Roll of Honour I'm compiling for the parish of Muiravonside, I found two men outwith the parish but with the same names as two men from the parish, the information may be useful to others so I've decided that all information I find that doesn't fit I will post here.

Falkirk Herald report 28 - 11- 1914
John Hutchison PTE Seaforth Highlanders Killed in action November 1914
Brightons policeman Killed in action, formerly a member of the Stirlingshire Constabulary and was stationed in Brightons and District for the past two years where he was highly respected. Native of Aberdeen and was three years on the Regulars, and was finishishing on the Reserves when he was called up at the outbreak of war.

Falkirk Herald report 30 - 12- 1914
Mathew Brown PTE 7th Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders drowned December 1914
Falkirk Soldier drowned
When returning at night from Purbright (?) camp to resume duty as a railway patrol at Purbright Junction, Private Mathew Brown, National Reservist, attached to the 7th Battalion Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, in closing the lock gates at the canal fell into the water and drowned. He was a pipe moulder at Callander Ironworks, Falkirk, aged 48, and had previously served as a Regular in the Regiment to which he was attached. A coronor jury on Saturday returned a verdict of accidental death.

I have started another thread with respect to Matthew Brown. It is possible that he could be forwarded to the MoD as a non-commemoration.

Thank you David for putting up this newspaper report.
