Thanks Gary, the Peter error was in the Weekly War section and may have been made at the time. He was correctly listed on the Virtual Memorial. I have changed both. Thank you once more for your help. I'll contact you directly by email.

Hello Gary, nice to hear from you. Could you give me more details of the misnamed soldier, ideally his number, name as currently listed, his correct name, etc? I'll be most happy to update the entry. Thank you again.

Many thanks for your hard work in producing such an excellent and informative website. For the first time I have been able to confirm where my wife's grandfather James Hoy Rae died, namely at Loos in 1915. His daughters were only aged 3 & 1 and there was little family information handed down as they were living in Scotland. She has only now learned of his middle name and that he had a brother Richard who died at the Somme. If anyone has any further information on his family, it would be most welcome. The only other fact of which she is aware is that her mother's m/s was Dunseath which is probably after one of his grandmothers
