Newbattle at War a history of the Parish at war   

 Now featuring Scots in the Great War Living History Society.    


Private 9379 John Williamson , Queens Own Cameron Highlanders, nothing unusual about that you might well say and that is true, however John was born in the 'Big Apple' - New York , USA . As you can see his parents resided in Newtongrange and that he enlisted in 1912. I have no idea what induced to return and sign up.
