"My paternal grandfather, James Morton Robertson and was born in Newington in 1882. He ran away from home at 14 and joined the Royal Scots Fusiliers.  He was sent to S Africa in 1901 and was at the relief of Ladysmith.  He served in Zululand, quelling uprisings.

He was sent, again, to South Africa during WW1. He  campaigned in German South West Africa (Namibia).

During WW2, he was an ARP Warden."
