Private David Fotheringham, 10th Battalion, Black Watch, born on 4 January 1878 at Ballingry, Fife, was the third son of Philip Ogilvie Fotheringham, a General Labourer, and Margaret Fotheringham (nee Brown), of King Street, Alloa. David enlisted in Lancashire where he was working in the iron industry with his older brother William. Their service numbers were one digit apart. He died on 13 September 1916, age 38, and is buried in Karasouli Military Cemetery, Greece. They went to France as part of the 26th Division in September 1915 but two months later moved to Salonika.


Private William Alexander Fotheringham, 10th Battalion, Black Watch, transferred to 655th Company, Labour Corps, born on 17 March 1871 at Beath, Fife, was the eldest son of Philip and Margaret Fotheringham. William enlisted in Lancashire where he was working in the iron industry with his younger brother David. Their service numbers were one digit apart. He died at home on 13 October 1918, age 47, and is buried in Airdrie (St Joseph's) Roman Catholic Cemetery. They went to France as part of the 26th Division in September 1915 but two months later moved to Salonika. It is possible that William may have transferred to the Labour Corps due to his age or perhaps his civilian skills.
