Private John Dalgleish, 1st/4th ( Border ) Battalion, Kings Own Scottish Borderers. He was killed in action on 12th July 1915 at Gallipoli during the “Charge” on the Turkish trenches at Achi Baba Nullah, aged 24. He was the son of Robert and Margaret Dalgleish of Kimmerston and is commemorated on the Helles Memorial, Helles, Gallipoli, Turkey. He had been born in Cornhill and had enlisted in Coldstream. Before the war he had worked as a farm servant for Mr Logan of Cornhill farm and had enlisted in October 1914. That fateful day became known as the “Black Day of the Borders” as at evening roll call only 70 unwounded men answered out of the over 700 Officers and men who had begun the attack. The Colonel and his Adjutant were both killed. Few Border towns and villages had not lost at least one of their sons that day. The first photo shows Achi Baba marked with a cross. This “hill” dominated the battlefield and was never captured. The second shows the Borderers attacking at Gallipoli and the third shows the Battlefield in 1922.
