Scottish Rifles


Well-known member
Just found a marriage for one of my rellies and within the Occupation of the Groom it had :

Occupation : Brick Burer (hard to read) Private No 30595 Scottish Rifles.

Would I be guessin right that the Private No 30595 might be his Service number ?and Scottish Rifles maybe served in the Cameronians

He was 39years old when he married, so not sure why, if I am right, that he would have his Military details as his occupation...
