The grave is situated on a high bank overlooking the Teviot near Sunlaws Mill. It is marked by a simple stone set upright. 

Brigadier-General Robert Scott-Kerr (1859-1942) DSO, MVO commanded the 4th (Guards) Brigade at the outbreak of the Great War. He was badly wounded in the thigh at Villers-Cotterets. 


"Brigadier General Robert Scott-Kerr DSO (2 November 1859 – 25 November 1942) was a British Army officer.
After being educated at Eton and Trinity College, Cambridge, he was commissioned in the 24th Regiment of Foot in 1879, transferring shortly thereafter to the Grenadier Guards. He saw service in the Zulu War, where he fought at the Battle of Ulundi, the Sudan Campaign and the South African War, where he was mentioned in despatches and awarded the Distinguished Service Order. From 1904 to 1908 he commanded the 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards.

On the outbreak of the First World War he took command of 4th (Guards) Brigade in the British Expeditionary Force. He was wounded on 1 September, commanding 4th Brigade in a rearguard action during the Retreat from Mons, and returned to England. The injuries proved so severe that he never again held a field command; he commanded a brigade in the Home Forces for the remainder of the war, before retiring in 1919.

Robert Scott-Kerr

(1859-1942)

Brigadier-General

DSO. GOC Infantry Brigade

Grenadier Guards

Robert Scott-Kerr was the eldest son of William Scott-Kerr of Sunlaws and Chatto in the Scottish borders. He was commissioned in the South Wales Borderers (then the 24th Foot) from the Militia in March 1879, transferring to the Grenadier Guards eight months later. He served in the Zulu War (1879), the Soudan (1885) and South Africa (1900-2), where he won the DSO. On the outbreak of the Great War he took command of 4th (Guards) Brigade, 2nd Division, but was badly wounded in the thigh by a German machine gun at Villers-Cotterêts on 1 September 1914. His wound was so severe that he was prevented from assuming an active field command again. He was one of only four GOsC Infantry Brigades in the original BEF who did not go on to command (at least) a division. Brigadier-General Scott-Kerr retired in 1919.
