James, born 10th of January 1687, died, 21st September 1745, was a Scottish soldier who fought in the British Army, including during the 1745 Jacobite rising. He was born at Carriden, educated in Linlithgow, and joined the army at the age of fourteen. He served with distinction in several battles and was promoted through the ranks to Colonel in 1743. Gardiner was known as a rake in his youth, but had a religious experience in 1719 and became a devout convert. In 1726 he married Frances Erskine, daughter to the ninth Earl of Buchan; five of their thirteen children survived to adulthood. During the Battle of Ramillies he was shot through the mouth and nearly killed by a French soldier who had returned to plunder the dead. However, Gardiner was spared after being mistaken for a French soldier. At the Battle of Prestonpans he was mortally wounded by the Highlanders after his dragoons had fled the field and he was attempting to rally some footsoldiers. He received a mortal blow whilst wounded on the ground and was stripped to the waist as his possessions were looted by the Highlanders. After the battle Gardiner was carried from the field by a servant to nearby Tranent where he soon died. By a quirk of fate Gardiner lived close to the battlefield in Bankton House.

Easter Day, 1917, The Eve of the Battle. I rose and watched the eternal giant of fire, Renew his struggle with the grey monk Dawn, Slowly supreme, though broadening streaks of blood, Besmirch the threadbare cloak, and pour his flood. Of life and strength on our yet sleeping choir. As I went out to church on Easter morn. Returning with the song of birds and men. Acclaiming victory of throbbing life, I saw the fairies of the morning shower, Giving to drink each waking blade and flower, I saw the new world take Communion then, and now 'tis night and we return to strife. Huts, France, April, 1917. Eugene is buried in Duisans British Cemetery Etrun, Pas De Calais, France,.
