Willie McLaughlan
Good Afternoon,


Sincerely hope that you don’t mind me contacting you in this way but I am hoping that you may be able to assist.

I have a friend here in Biggar who is the Daughter of Willie McLaughlan MM. She doesn’t have a single photo of him and has asked me to help to locate one which she can show her children and grandchildren.

Willie was a Sergeant Instructor on a Lowland Brigade cadre I did at Dreghorn Bks in 1962 and I am hoping that there are Cameronians out there that may have a photo of him that could be copied. If there is then I will cover any expense incurred.

Hoping that this makes sense and that you can help in some way.


Kind Regards,

John Sands, former Royal Scots and good friend of Maxie Macdonald.
