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.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
