Oh, you never know what gems you'll find when you browse this forum!!

Stirling Roll of Honour has:
Anderson, Alex. Pte 11th A. & S. H., 24 Union Street

Without a date of death I couldn't be sure which of the many Alexander Andersons on CWGC it was. Govangirl came up trumps with this article in the Stirling Observer - I can find him now.
Thank you Mary.

Sandra

2nd part:
Jings to hang and help ma boab! There are 2 Alexander Andersons in the Argylls both killed on 23rd April 1917 - one born in Alloa and one in Alva, both of which are just a hop and a step from Stirling. Neither has any family details on CWGC. I'm going with the Alloa one (S/40200) as he was in 11th A&SH.
