It is sad that Hugh Young has died and deepest condolences to all the family. Unfortunately our Regimental office has the detail wrong. As the Scotsman said on 28th September the"Celebration of his life" (not the word funeral) will be held in Greenbank Church, Edinburgh on THURSDAY 6th October 2016 (not Tuesday). I assume perhaps incorrectly that the funeral has already taken place. Jock WS

I am writing from Belgium ; so first of all, excuse my non-perfect English. But I am searching (deperately) for a certain Charles L.E. Groth, who has served in 'The Royal Scots' in WW.II . His date of birth was almost certainly : 10/06/1925. He had a brother John (1929) and a sister Barbara (1932). Their mother named Jessie Groth. In 1945 this family lived in London (Sandringham Avenue - S.W.20). This Charles has fighted in France and Belgium. My aunt - who died recently - was in correspondance with him immediately after the war, and I found these letters with quiet interesting historical contents. So I would like to come in contact with his descendants, or - in the absence of those - with the descendants of his brother (John) or sister (Barbara). I did already some superficial research on internet, but without concrete results ; as you have to pay for "ancestor-finding-sites". Can someone please help me by searching for this person (and family), or give me some specific information ?? I would very much appreciate!!
