All Thanks To Phil

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - LETTERS -

I was de­lighted to read Phil To­maselli’s ar­ti­cle in the Novem­ber is­sue about trac­ing First World War sol­diers, as my fa­ther, David Saw­ers Mil­li­gan, served with the Camero­ni­ans (Scot­tish Ri­fles). I have traced what I be­lieve is my fa­ther’s medal in­dex card, but have never found his ser­vice record. I have a photo of him with the 10th (Ser­vice) Bat­tal­ion, and us­ing lon­g­long­trail.co.uk (as sug­gested by Phil) I was able to dis­cover their move­ments in Europe. I have a photo of him re­cu­per­at­ing in hospi­tal some­where, but don’t know where. He died when I was two in 1944, and I have no mem­ory of him. There are no sur­viv­ing fam­ily mem­bers, but this is a frag­ment to add to his life. Thank you.

EDI­TOR REPLIES: I’m glad Phil’s ar­ti­cle was so use­ful to you.
