No, they offered service records for the two men, 30 pounds is a bit much. The war memorial I am researching has 50 men.
I have the war diary from the NA and I have a good idea what action Davison received his wounds.
The diary for Scott is a bit more vague KIA 27th May 1918
210 am "Enemy commenced a gas bombadment of the area F13d around reserve battalion HQ. The majority of the shells were the Tachymetory with a few phosgene. There were no yellow cross shells. 740pm An enemy propogander balloon was shot down near Quesnoy farm, it contained the Gazette de Ardennes etc. 9am Operation order RD44 for relief 2/5G in night sub sector issued."
I can only assume he was a victim of this shelling as no casualties for this day are listed
The Company/Platoon info was only to try and narrow things down.
Interests:1st and 4th Battalion Grenadier Guards, Christmas Truce, BEF, Battle of the Lys and consuming WW1 literature.

Bit of a long, long shot but ...if you get chance to browse through "The Grenadier Guards in the Great War 1914-1919 books by Ponsonby" they 'may' shed some light. Please note it's (3 Volumes), I bought it when researching my rellie for my book. he was in the 1st and 4th Btn Grenadier Guards and i managed to glean quite a bit of useful background info in there.
