Robert Nimmo Military Service Records

I’ve previously told the story of Robert Nimmo, the Auchentibber solider born in 1894 and who died in 1918 during the First World War. You can read that story here.

Perhaps of interest to the Nimmo family today, are these newly acquired documents shared here by Gordon Cook, which show Robert Nimmo’s short service records. They offer lots of information about family, including where the lived. I can’t help but think who sad and awful it would have been for them putting pen to paper and signing this, acknowledging the end of Robert’s Military career cut short by his tragic passing.

Update: Janes Davies sent this photo of Robert (standing) which looks slightly different from the man in the photo with the hat. However, there is a strong resemblance and it may still be the same person.
