    Neither of the 2 active Battalions of the Scots Guards saw action in Gallipoli in the Great War. There were, however, a considerable number of Scottish units in Gallipoli -such as the Royal Scots, etc. Are you sure that your Grandfather was in the Scots Guards?

    I am quite happy to check your grandfather on Ancestry - assuming it has not already been done.

    Some WW1 service records and medal cards are available there.

    Let me know.

    Regards
