Remembering William J Milne

On 11th July we recall the sacrifice of William J. Milne, Serjeant 3220, 1st/4th Bn Gordon Highlanders.  A native of Portsoy, William was brought up there by his grandparents Mr & Mrs W. Milne, who subsequently lived at Gatehouse, Inverurie.  He was 38 years of age when he fell in battle on 11th July 1916 and is commemorated by a gravestone at Aubigny Communal Cemetery Extension in France.
