NOTE: This man appears to be identical to 8601 Joseph George SCOTT who appears on the Embarkation Roll of the 6th Field Artillery Brigade, Brigade Ammunition Column, but who does not appear on the Nominal Roll or on the National Archives website. It would appear - but without the Attestation Form for Joseph George SCOTT, that his second given name has been incorrectly entered as George.
