About Me

I am the son of a Ukrainian father and Scottish mother with a firm interest in the history of both countries. I speak Ukrainian and link frequently with a number of cultural and educational establishments in Ukraine.I am researching all links between Ukraine and Scotland beginning with the 17th century sons of minor Scots nobles who fought as mercenaries in the various Cossack hosts of Russia and "Little Russia" (Ukraine).

WW1 is an area begging further research for me as I am sure Vasily was not the only migrant Ukrainian fighting alongside the various military units of the Empire.

I'm quite sure you are correct,, I have came across a few other lads who are of either Ukranian or Rusian extraction in the village. Pretty sure some of them served in WW1.
