    Thiepval is the largest and one of the most emotive memorials to the missing from any war in which British soldiers have died. It stands in an isolated windswept position on the Somme - with absolutely no facilities for visitors and nothing to explain what happened in 1916. A high proportion of the names at Thiepval are soldiers who died on 1st July 1916 – the first day of the Battle of the Somme. All that visitors find are 600 British and French graves and the names of 72,000 British soldiers carved into the stone of this massive memorial, designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens

I believe Thomas Prentice 1777, son of John Prentice and Euphemia Scott to be the same man who married Margaret McPherson in Gorbals 1815. Confirmation is difficult, however, Thomas's second daughter was named Euphemia Scott Prentice. Other siblings of Thomas's were living in Gorbals, Glasgow at the same time. I believe Thomas 1815, born to Thomas 1777, was my GG Grandfather. Daughter of Thomas 1815 was Annie Prentice, whose photograph I have already sent.
