I've just watched a brilliant and very moving film about the life of Scottish soldier Robert Beveridge who won the Military Medal during the Battle of Arras. He was killed in action during the Battle of Passchendaele in 1917. He has no known grave.



Even in death Corporal Beveridge was not remembered - his mother and father had died. His sister and brother had left the village of Uphall, West Lothian, by the time research began to put names on a local war memorial and so his sacrifice went unhonoured and unmarked. Even now we don't have a photograph of him.
