When Robert passed through Peterborough East Station on 12 May 1917 he was with two comrades Lance Corporal Langskaill and Private S McGrow and they wrote in the visitors’ book “Stranded here for 8 hours Sunday 21st May but found “a home from home” in the G.E.R. “Soldiers & Sailors Rest room” to the Ladies of which we offer our most grateful thanks and best wishes.”  Robert was serving with D Company of the 8th Battalion Black Watch.

We are unable to positively identify this soldier as we have been unable to match his signature with his service record.  However, from other research carried out, we have discovered that he served in France and was wounded twice.  The first time was on 9 April 1917 in Arras when he received a gunshot wound to his right leg and then again on 19 July 1917 with a gunshot wound to his left buttock.  He was awarded the British war and Allied Victory Medals.
