    I think my grandfather was in the 4th Battalion, during WW1, please help !

    I had a few basic facts regarding my grandfather from my uncle
    1) Name, Robert Davidson Nicolson from Dundee.
    2) He finished in the 4/5 battalion, Black Watch
    3) He was a territorial before the war started

    From this I assumed that he started the war in either the 4 or the 5 territorial battalions
    The 5 ( Dundee and Angus ) landed in France in Nov 1914.
    The 4 ( City of Dundee ) landed in France in Feb 26 1915.

    I have found what I believe is his Medals Index Card, see attached :-

    On the card it says that he joined the French theatre on 24th Feb.
    I know that the 4 left Dundee on the 23rd Feb, and arrived in Le Havre on the 26th,
    do you agree that this was probably him ?

    I cant seem to find his Service card, Maybe it is one of the 60% lost in the Kew bombing ?
