JAMES MILLER is named in the Fairlie Roll of Honour of enlisted men printed in the
Largs & Millport Weekly News on 21 Nov 1914 and in the Ardrossan and
Saltcoats Herald Roll of Honour in Dec 1914 – he is recorded as Miller, Pte.
James, Kelburn, RSF (Royal Infirmary, Stirling)
If he had been in action before Nov
1914, he would have received the 1914 Star – only two James Millers (RSF)
received that medal:-
No. 7291 James Miller (also
Millar); entered theatre of war 14 Aug 1914; discharged; 1914 Star, British War
& Victory medals
No. 8649 James Miller (A/Sgt);
entered theatre of war 6 Oct 1914; killed in action 12 Mar 1915; father’s
address J. Miller, 41 Robertson Place, Kilmarnock
He isn’t in Fairlie in the 1911
Census or the 1912-1915 and 1920 Valuation Rolls, and we don’t have enough
information to trace him in the statutory records.
