My name s Tom Mailey and I run a small IT and photograph enhancement business based in Stirling the home of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders. This is a request for information. My step father Peter Leishman (now deceased) served with the Argylls in 1955 and was part of Gaza Platoon, August to October 1955.

I am at present restoring this photograph of that platoon due to wear and tear and damage through the years to its original state. Due to this wear and tear, a couple of the names of that platoon are unreadable. To allow me to restore this photograph to its original state I would appreciate if anyone on here has this information.

I went up to the Argyll regimental museum in Stirling Castle today to try and obtain this information. There was nothing available (to my amazement, where are the Argyll army records?) but was told of this message board where someone on here might be able to help. Once I have restored this photograph I have said i will hand a copy into the museum for their collection.

This would be much appreciated. Here is our Facebook page where a copy of the photograph in its state of today is available to view. I also restored a photograph of William Rourke who was killed at the Battle of the Somme which the Argylls have now a copy.

Thank you in advance if anyone on here can help
