Hello, Just to say thank you for this brilliant and informative site.
My name is Valerie Cairney and Lachlan Nicol was my Great Uncle on my mother's side.
I was wondering if anyone could please let me know the year and month that Lachlan enlisted in the 1st Battalion Seaforths - I know he enlisted in Elgin and that he is buried in Ramleh Cemetary in Palestine.
I will be visiting Israel in March and will hope to visit Lachlan's grave in Ramleh - I have managed to obtain his memorial reference for the Cemetary.
Thank you in advance.

It looks like two of the "missing" names might have been identified thanks to some excellent researching by a couple of pals of the Great War Forum.
