King's Own Scottish Borderers - Other Rank PoWs 1914


This is an edited roll of Other Ranks serving with the 1st and 2nd Battalions, King's Own Scottish Borderers, who were captured by the enemy and became Prisoners of War on or before the 25th December 1914. Read more about this data source on my 1914 PoWs 
page.

This data has been transcribed from a single source at the Imperial War Museum: B.O.2 1/133, a 6-page, typed list sent by the King's Own Scottish Borderers Prisoner of War Fund to Sir Ernest Goodhart, dated 23rd December 1918.

My full transcription of this KOSB data (not reproduced here) also contains:

  • the man's home address
  • the man's battalion and company
There are 190 names on this list, light by some battalions' standards for 1914 but nevertheless a significant loss of experienced soldiers.

The full transcription is available for sale as a download or CD for £20. Contact me if you would like to purchase a copy.
