JOHN DEVLIN killed in action at Atbara, Sudan 8th April 1898 aged 28 years
Son of John and Mary Ann Devlin (nee Whiteside)





Mod Edit: Adam
He is also commemorated on the Seaforth Highlanders Memorial 1897-1898, St Giles High Kirk, Edinburgh and the Atbara battlefield memorial, Sudan. This second memorial still existed in 1937. Whether it has survived fifty years of Sudanese independence is another matter.

William Strachan – Obituary

Falkirk Herald, May 1914 (Saturday Edition)

"The late Ex-Pte. Wm. Strachan

The death took place from acute pneumonia after a few days illness at his residence, Howgate, on Monday of ex-Private William Strachan, who had passed through a great deal of active army service and who was a well known and esteemed National Reservist. Mr Strachan who was 62 years of age, was a native of Denny, but the most of his life was spent in Falkirk. He was originally a moulder to-trade and while a young man he enlisted in the first battalion of the Black Watch and later transferred to the second battalion of the Seaforth Highlanders, from which he retired 21 years ago, on a pension, after undergoing 21 years service.

He passed through the Ashanti War of 1873-74 and took part in the storming of Coomassie. He was also engaged in the Afghan War of 1878-80. In the Egyptian War of 1882 he was present at the battle of Tel-el-Kebir and in 1885 (?) he was engaged in the Blackmount Expedition and he took part in the engagements at Piazara (sp?). He possessed five medals and also the Khedive Star for the Egyptian War of 1882.

Since returning to Falkirk, Mr Strachan had been engaged in the warehouse of Falkirk Foundry. He was a member and at one time office-bearer of the Fort George Lodge of Freemasons and was prominently associated with the Falkirk and District Old Soldiers’ and Sailors’ (R.N.) Association, by the members of which and by all who knew him, he was highly esteemed. Mr. Strachan, who was unmarried, resided with a married sister in Howgate.

The deceased was buried with military honours in Falkirk Cemetery on Wednesday afternoon. There was a fair attendance of National Reservists and others. After the coffin had been lowered into the grave, a firing party, which was in charge of ex-Sergt-Instructor James Brown, fired three volleys with blank cartridge over the grave. Piper Lindsay played ‘Lochaber no more’ on the bagpipes; and Mr. John McQueen sounded ‘The Last Post on the bugle. The service was a very impressive one.

On the grave was placed a beautiful wreath intertwined with the Seaforth tartan ribbon which was subscribed for by the members of the Old Soldiers’ and Sailors’ (R.N.) Association."


(I forgot to take a note of the actual date of the edition of the Falkirk Herald. Embarassed )

Anne

That's a very interesting article. Going on the dates in the article he joined the 42nd in 1872. He was still in the Black Watch in 1873-74 in Ashanti. By 1878 he had transferred to 78th Highlanders.

He probably transferred in 1874 when the 42nd and 78th were serving together in Dover (along with 79th and 93rd Highlanders) in a Highland Brigade.

The 78th then went to Afghanistan in 1879 and then moved to India in 1881 when it became 2nd Bn Seaforth Highlanders.

In August 1882 two companies from the 2nd Bn joined the 1st Bn in Aden. This unit then went to Egypt in 1882 to fight at Tel-el-Kebir.

He must have then returned to the 2nd Bn to take part in the Black Mountain Expedition on the North West Frontier in 1888. It may be Hazara rather than Piazara since there was a punitive expedition to Hazara in 1891.

He would then have been discharged in 1892.

His medals would include

Ashantee War Medal with 'Coomassie' Clasp
2nd Afghan War Medal
Egypt Medal
Khedive's Egypt Star
India General Service Medal with two clasps - 'Hazara 1888' and 'Hazara 1891'

He had six in total according to the article. The other medal would not be a campaign medal. Did they have long service and good conduct medals in the 1880s?
