    When visiting family graves in the cemetery in Old Cumnock Scotland I often stop at
    the grave of 2025 Private John Steele 1st Battalion Australian Infantry. He died 31st
    July 1916. According to my research he was from Bogan Gate.
    I wonder why he is buried there. He is one of the few soldiers and the only Australian soldier buried there.
    I wonder if he still has family in Bogan Gate.
    The grave is well tended and usually has an Australian flag planted in the grave.
