American looking to trace soldier’s family

AN AMERICAN is looking to trace the relatives of a Kilsyth soldier to give them back a money clip he discovered whilst researching World War II.

Tobias Brown, who lives in Hong Kong, discovered the money clip which has J.F.S. KRRC 1830241 and the year 1934 inscribed on it.

After carrying out some research he discovered that the clip belonged to James Forsyth Stark, who was in the 11th (1st Bn, The Queen’s Westminster’s), King’s Royal Rifle Corp. He died on March 1, 1946, aged 31 and is buried in the Phaleron War Cemetery in Athens, Greece.
