    Theres a Fred Clayton age 21 in Dumfries district of Dumfries during 1942.

    and a 32 yr old Ronald McLeod in Aberdeen district of Aberdeen.

    there are 27 William Patersons dead in Scotland for the year, 26 of them may have no middle initial! 8 of those are in Glasgow! None are in the Ballieston district however. I've tried Lanarkshire also but same problems
