Dear Mr Duncan

Sometime ago you send me an email saying that you had a photograph of the late Sargent Dick Peacock. He was in the royal scots (service number 4294) and was killed in action. Is there a possibility you could send me this picture by email as i'm currently completing a project on the late Sargent Dick Peacock (my great uncle). I know your a very busy man but this picture would be very helpful for my investigations.

Yours faithfully

Jim Cairns

Welcome to Newbattle at War. Dick Peacock stayed in the Square and was the second man in the battalion to be killed in 1914. I have a photo of him.
