Signaller George Stewart was serving with the 2/4th Regiment Black Watch (Royal Highland) Regiment when he passed through Peterborough East Station on 13 July 1916.  He was stationed at Blickling Camp, Aylesham.

The 2/4th (City of Dundee) Battalion of the Royal Highlanders (Black Watch) was formed at Dundee in September 1914 as a second line unit and moved to Broughty Ferry on Tay Defences.  In January 1915 it moved to Hawick and attached to the 2nd Seaforth & Cameron Highlanders Brigade in the 2nd Highland Division, before moving to the Bridge of Earn in mid-1915.  In October 1915 the formation became the 191st Brigade in the 64th Division at Auchterarder.  In November 1915 it was absorbed into the 2/5th Battalion and moved to Norwich in May 1916 and soon on to Kelling Heath.  It was disbanded on 19 December 1917.

Unfortunately it has not been possible to find anything more about this soldier, but research continues – can you help?
