Chris,

Private S-26871 William McKillop Seaforth Highlanders Medal Entitlement for World War One is shown as the British War and Victory Medal only and is shown on the Rolls as serving with the 8th Battalion of the Regiment.

Once again I am afraid to say that there is no trace of his Service Record on Ancestry Uk and he is no trace on the Silver War Badge Roll.

Long Long Trail link here once again regarding the Seaforth Highlanders.

Chris,

My pleasure, not sure if you have access to Ancestry but the 8th Battalion, Seaforth Highlanders War Diary is available covering the period from 1917 -1919. This gives a detailed day to day account of the 8th Battalions progress through the War and your Man may even be mentioned if you are lucky.

If you do not have access, keep an eye out for the occasional free Weekend access they provide and you will be able to view it.

Regards Simon.

Hi Simon,

I don´t have access to Ancestry.

I´ll try to look there when it´s free.

Many thanks for your tips.

Best wishes

Chris
