Other Information:

Reginald enlisted into the RAMC on the 10th August 1914, he was aged 20 years and 8 months; was 5 Ft, 6 Inches tall, and weighed 8.4 lbs. He had previously served for 9 months in the Glasgow High School Cadet Corps. Reginald was attached to the 3rd Scottish General Hospital on 3rd rate Corps pay. On the 17th May 1915, he was transferred to the 1/1st Lowland Field Ambulance and was sent to serve with the Mesopotamian Expeditionary Force on the 5th June. On 19th July 1915, Reginald developed dysentry at Maidos and was transferred to the 19th General Hospital, Alexandria, Egypt. He remained there until the 15th August, when he was invalided to England on HMHS “Asturias”, he disembarked at Southampton and was hospitalised in Scotland from 26th August 1915 - 30th October 1915. On the 17th January 1916, Reginald was posted to 2/1st Lowland Field Ambulance and reported for duty in the office of the ADMS, attach to the Headquarters of the 65th Lowland Division. He took 5 days leave from the 23rd June 1916 - 27th June 1916, but was then on sick leave for 9 days from 31st October 1916 - 8th November 1916. Due to Reginald’s health problems brought on by the Malaria, he was transferred to Class P/T/TF Reserve and was finally disembodied ‘no longer physically fit for war service’ on the 17th December 1917, having served 3 years and 130 days. He was awarded the Silver War Badge. Reginald was the son of Dr Alexander Scott of Glasgow. [ Taken from Reginald's MIC and service record]. Information kindly provided by family - "Reggie was only four years old when his mother (Marjory Helen Scott nee MacIntryre died. His father Alexander Scott was a doctor and a Certifying Factory Surgeon. He was a medical student/apprentice fitter (engineer) when he signed up for the RAMC but he never went back to dentistry technician work after the war. he married Lily Dowling. Reginald Macintyre Scott died on 4th January 1957 at 68 Possil Road, Glasgow. His usual address is recorded as having been 27 Lacrosse Terrace, Glasgow. His death certificate records that he was a “Hospital Steward” and married to Lily Dowling. His death was registered by Laurance D.W. Scott, his half-brother. His cause of death is given as “Pre-senile dementia – 3 months”. The family story was that during the WW1 when he was home on leave he had his rifle propped up against the wall and his father offered him a drink. He picked up the decanter and drank directly from it – to which his father said “Good God son you will kill yourself” – his half brother Laurance (who would have been about 8 or 9 at the time), witnessed this and recounted the story – he thought it was rather ironic given where he had been in the war."
