Allan S. McLachlan

Royal Scots

2nd Batt. Royal Scots Fusiliers
He is remembered with honour on Park Church Memorial and Helensburgh War Memorial, Column 4 Line 45.

The family home was 47, Grant Street, Helensburgh.The son of Janet McLachlan (widow).
Siblings: Allan had an older brother, David.
 Allan McLachlan was born and brought up in Helensburgh where his mother was widowed.
On leaving school he was a butcher’s message boy before working with Messrs Wm. Thom and Son, slaters, and then enlisting.
Although we have no reports, we can surmise that he was captured in battle, and was taken prisoner of war. He died of pneumonia at the Military Hospital, Hillden, near Cologne at the age of 24 years.
