There is no trace of a T. Wilson or similar on either the CWGC or Ancestry.co.uk websites with obvious connections to the Doddington area & K.O.S.B.'s. However, 56316, Thomas Wilson who served with the Machine Gun Corps, previously with the KOSB, appears to be a striking possible match.
Formerly 538, King's Own Scottish Borderers.
N.B. 'Soldiers DiedÂ…' records the date of death as 3 June.
Born at Kelso, Roxburghshire, Scotland, the son of William Wilson, of Minto, near Hawick.
