Here are the details from the BBC Soldier remembered 36 years later An Arbroath solider who was shot and killed in Northern Ireland is being remembered in his home town - almost 36 years after his death. About 100 people are expected to march to the war memorial for the official dedication of a plaque to Scots Guardsman George Lockhart. The 24-year-old was hit in the back by a sniper in Londonderry in 1972. The Scots Guards Association has been campaigning for about three years to have his name added to the memorial. 'Never forgotten' Chairman of the Dundee and Angus branch David Cuthill told the BBC Scotland news website he was "over the moon" and "fair-chuffed" that this day had finally arrived. He said: "We've been campaigning for years to get this chap's name on the war memorial at Arbroath - George Lockhart. "He was wounded by a sniper while on patrol in Londonderry in Northern Ireland on September 23rd 1972 and he died from his wounds on the 26th of September. "All veterans that have been killed, it doesn't matter what campaign they've been in, it should be recognised. "It doesn't matter how far back you go, anybody who's been killed in action should be remembered - never forgotten
