Now I have done some research on the man, and have found two records for him on the National Archives Record one is from the Air Ministry , record number AIR/76/143 pt1 This clearly shows Lt Colin McCash Brown Duncan was a confirmed pilot in December 1917. Record two is his medal index card, record number WO/372/6 Which shows him in 1918 transferring to the Royal Scots as rank of Private then transfers to the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders as Rank of Lieutenant Entitled to the BWM and Victory medal. I also found him listed on AIR History. Both records I have hard copies of for the new owner.
