James Scott

Bank: Ulster Bank

Place of work: Bangor branch

Died: 13 April 1944


James Gilmore Scott was born on 30 March 1922, the son of William James and Ida Mabel Scott. In April 1940 he went to work for Ulster Bank at its head office in Belfast. Seven months later he moved to Carrickmacross branch, and then in February 1941, to Bangor branch.


In May 1941 Scott left the bank to go on war service, joining the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers. By 1944 he held the rank of Lieutenant, and was serving in Burma. He died there on 13 April 1944, two weeks after his 22nd birthday. The inscription on his gravestone reads 'Your memory hallowed in the land you loved'.


James Scott is commemorated on two memorials at Ulster Bank’s Belfast head office: its roll of honour for staff who served in the Second World War and its memorial for those who fell.
