Text source

Robert Forrat was a surgeon with the Scottish troops in Denmark who received his reckoning by 18 October 1628. He was in litigation by Spring 1629 over his remaining fee. Riis lists two separate Robert Forrets, but these are probably the same man. In fact this is probably the same as the Robert Forrat who later served in the Swedish army as a surgeon [SSNE 2279].

T. Riis, Should Auld Acquaintance Be Forgot (Odense, 1988), II, p.119, and p.136.
