Hunt on for descendants of three Scottish WW1 soldiers

Are you related to William Marr Constable, Charles F Fox or Andrew Scott Greig, all of whom died on June 6, 1918 at a farm in the village of Flêtre in northern France? If so, the Centre for World War Two Studies in Edinburgh wants to hear from you, on behalf of the French building's present owner Didier Godderis.

I'd love to see "Who Do You Think You Are?" take on something like this. The episodes with well-known people are great and have some great stories but I think sometimes doing it with ordinary people (if you can call those killed fighting for King and Country ordinary) would make for an equally interesting story.
