John was born in Helensburgh Dumbartonshire in approximately 1882 . He was the son of John Leitch of 14, West Clyde Helensburgh . John and his wife Christina C Leitch lived in Arbroath Forfarshire at 1 Culloden Crescent at the time of his enlistment in 1914 with two daughters Ina & Elizabeth . John s/n 3103 was KIA the night of July 15 1917 during the battle of the Dunes near Nieuport Belgum . I would like to thank my friends at The Great War Forum for much of the information we have of Johns war service . After spending two years of research I have adopted John as my own but he is actually my lovely wife's Great Grand Father . If this information could put us in touch with long lost family members in your great Country that that would be our ultimate goal.  Best Regards Bill & Catherine

Hi Bill & Catherine, My mothers Uncle, Thomas Gallacher was in 15th HLI KIA and was killed and buried in Nieuport Belgium 1917. I sent for a photo of his grave and cemetery . I have only a small amount of info, but will try to gain more.

regards Suzanne
