My grandfather Alexander MacKay is on the memorial.
I have a photograph of a football team possibly taken at Dunblane which includes my grandfather. I am led to believe that all other members of the team perished, as did my grandfather, I have not been able to identify any other members of the team, and was wondering if I send a copy of the photo could they possibly be identified. May have a little difficulty as am 77 years old and not very technical minded Embarassed so a little help may be needed.
as I live in Australia.
