Albert Scott M.S.M, QSA, Mons Star (from ADRIC register)

The ADRIC man claimed Mons Star, but this man does not have it. I am working on the assumption, which may be wrong, that he comes from Lancs like Silveira, and so served in L North Lancs Regt.

1880 Jun 5 Born Lancashire as in RIC record. And there is an Albert Scott born Salford, but he is in 1901 census.and born in wrong quarter
