    I’m amazed at this. William Douglass was my nans Brother. We are extremely proud of William he was so young. Any information is always interesting.
    Rest in peace.

    If you haven't already done so, you could apply to MOD for copy service records. (Response rate recently is a bit slow but worth the wait if you want to have a fuller picture of his service.)

    William Douglass and Annie Rebecca Douglass were my great grandparents. Cpl. Douglass was my grandmothers brother. My Grandmother had moved out by then.
