It does not seem to be listed....maybe your local library has it on film.

I'm afraid that's unlikely... in France...
Never mind, maybe I'll find something next time I'm over in Scotland...
Thanks anyway.

Re Private John Lough.
I have just uncovered his details. His place of birth was given as Stirling when in fact he was born in County Londonderry, N.I. to William Lough and Mary Gallagher. These were the names of his parents given on his marriage certificate when he married my grandmother in Glasgow in 1912.
He probably gave birthplace as Stirling when he signed up.
Details were given in the Census of Ireland 1901.

This is WMR 69457, to which I have added the names, the reference to this report and the reference to the unveiling, and corrected the spelling of the unveiler's name this morning.

All as a result of 'Tanyagar's' comment about 'a street near you' yesterday, drawing my attention to this memorial.
