Hi James and welcome.

I have done a bit of work in Ayrshire myself, particularly along the coast and south of Ayr.

Much to be done though and many church and school memorials to be tracked down and posted on this forum.

Thanks for the welcome. I hope and can add to this great project. I've dipped into the site a few times over the years. Time to give something back.

Hi Anne

Hi Adam Brown ....we have spoken a good few times over the years, I'm a member on the GWF as well.

Hi Spoons ...yes your right, I believe every name has its own unique story and they should never be forgotten

Hi anne park I loom forward to that. I have 89 Gordon Highlanders all ranks all battalions on my database. You can have all that I have. I can be contacted here or on my Facebook page here -

Keep up the Great work!

Meant to say I can access MIC's, Service records, Pension records where they survive. DCM, MM and MC medal citations.
I have access to a few other things like RND records and shipping records if anyone needs access.

Regards
JB
