The purpose of this site is to provide a research tool for the King's Own Scottish Borderers and the soldiers who served in that fine regiment.

A research service is offered for a nominal fee.  If you are interested please see:

Research Write-ups examples of my work.


I draw most of my research from the Borderers Chronicle and associated Regimental Histories
