|From the "Hawick News", March 23rd, 1917
"Drummond - at the Naval Hospital, Hull, on the 10th inst, John Drummond, fourth son of William Drummond, Baker Lane, St.Andrews, aged 33."
The "Ancestry" 1891 Census for the Drummond family at 5 Baker lane, St.Andrews states that they were all born in St.Andrews.
So what is the link to the town of Hawick which featured the death?
