War Medal Mc Killop

Recommended Posts


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.


Regards Simon.

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.

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem
