John S Nairne lived at Rosehaugh, was educated at Fortrose Academy and worked at the Royal Bank of Scotland in Inverness, prior to enlisting in the Lovat Scouts. During an advance on the Western Front he was dangerously wounded, and lay for 2 days and nights in a shell hole until being rescued. At hospital it was found necessary to amputate both legs to the knees. His own presence of mind, in preventing blood loss, saved his life.

HIs widow, now in her nineties, lives in Canada.
