George Findlay was born on 21 March 1871 in Lugar Street, Cumnock to George Samson Findlay and Sarah Hamilton. His father was born at Broomfield farm but by 1865 was the landlord of the Wheatsheaf Inn in Cumnock. George was an engineer and publican at the Wheatsheaf along with his mother Sarah after his father died.
He joined the fledgling RAF in July 1918 when he was 47 making him one of the oldest men to serve. He was 5 foot 9 and a half inches tall with brown hair and blue eyes. His civilian occupation was fitter. His mother Sarah was his next of kin. He gave his DOB as 22 March 1871 which is a day later than what's on his birth certificate!
He was discharged on 30 April 1920.
I've not found what happened to him after that. He doesn't appear to have died in Cumnock.
