May have spoken to you about the lads before.
My Great Grandmother Agnes Robertson's brother was 2239 Sylvester Robertson. He had brothers named Alexander born 1891, James 1887, Robert 1882 and William 1880. They were from Plans of Thornton, Glamis and I suspect more than just Sylvester may have enlisted in the 1/5th Black Watch. I have some information that Robert emigrated to Canada and died there in 1914, however haven't been able to find any corroboration on Ancestry. 2227 James Robertson from Glamis who was KIA is not my James and not a relative.
My Great Grandfather John Cameron Smart's brother was David Smart born 1887. I have accounted for his other brothers Alexander and George. They were from Templebank, Glamis. S/43010 Alexander Smart from Glamis is not a relative.
