      Hi, William,

      Thanks for your response. I'd love a copy of the article you mentioned. Hopefully my computer will cope. (How big IS this file???)

      > I have a great story written by my uncle Pat Bruce who survived WWI in the Gordon Highlanders. He does not name many names, but he talks of serving with other boys (he was 17) from Peterhead. He was one of six survivors who were with a Lt. Kerr who received the Victoria Cross for holding up the German advance with their machine gun until it ran out of ammunition and they were captured. The story ran in the Fraserburgh newspaper years ago, titled, I Was There. I could send it to you if your mailbox has the capacity.
