Name: RUSSELL, WILLIAM
Initials: W
Nationality: United Kingdom
Rank: Lance Corporal
Regiment/Service: Royal Scots Fusiliers
Unit Text: 2nd Bn.
Date of Death: 12/10/1916
Service No: 15360
Additional Information: Son of Crawford and Margaret Russell (nee Bradford)
Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead
Grave/Memorial Reference: Pier and Face 3 C.
Memorial: THIEPVAL MEMORIAL

Name: SINCLAIR, JAMES
Initials: J
Nationality: United Kingdom
Rank: Private
Regiment/Service: Royal Scots
Unit Text: 13th Bn.
Age: 22
Date of Death: 12/07/1917
Service No: 16979
Additional information: Son of Ann Russell Sinclair, of Mollinsburn, Croy, Glasgow.
Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead
Grave/Memorial Reference: I. F. 22.
Cemetery: MENDINGHEM MILITARY CEMETERY







The inscription on the stone would indicate that Pte. James Sinclair was the step-son of Crawford Russell who presumably re-married after his wife Margaret Bradfordís death in 1904, making James the step-brother of L/Cpl. William Russell. But from Pte. James Sinclairís CWGC entry, his mother is listed as Ann Russell Sinclair which usually indicates that her maiden name would have been Russell, married name Sinclair.

Crawford Russell died on 11th February 1951 aged 80 years so itís not a case that his 2nd wife re-married after his death to become Sinclair, unless they divorced and she then re-married Mr. Sinclair or she was previously married to a Mr. Sinclair and she is still listed under her previous married name?

What ever the circumstances were, the name of Pte. James Sinclairís father and his motherís maiden name will remain a mystery!

(Phew!)

Stone also posted under Sinclair.
