  • William Cargill was my great great uncle (i.e. my grandmothers fathers brother). My grandmother was involved in my and my siblings lives, but never talked about her father or his brothers. This year 2015, is the first year that we have discovered that William and his brother Robert served and died in WW1. I am glad that now we can say we "Remember Them", for their service to King and Country, and for their sacrifice.
