I looked for something on Robert but all I could find was an entry showing his death date as July 23, 1916
It shows the info you already have of him being a sergeant in Highland Light Infantry

I looked at the British War Graves and found an entry for
Kilgour R. sergeant Highland Light Infantry
died July 23m 1916
buried: Basra War Cemetery

I haven't found anything on George other than being in 1901 census with the family. Do you have that census info?
