This is the story of the 30,490 men that left Dundee to fight in the First World War and of the people left at home.
Update: Roll of Honour
Ever since we lauched our Roll of Honour in November 2015, we have been overwhelmed with support from the public. With just one part time member of staff, it has taken longer than we’d anticipated to get information entered, however we have recently recruited and trained several student volunteers to help us with the backlog.
Over the past two days, we’ve updated nearly 60 entries. We’ve been able to tell the stories of men who fell such as Private John Buntin Henderson, Private William Buntin Henderson, and Gunner David Bell. Thank to family members, we’ve been able to add photographs, scans of silk postcards, and much more to their records.
Public submissions have also allowed us to add to our ‘Returnees‘ section. We’ve updated this to include entries for Lieutenant Colonel William Edward Foggie, Private James Collins, and Major James Samuel Yeaman Rogers, to name but a few. We’re proud to be able to share the stories of these distinguished and decorated soldiers – and we couldn’t have done it without the public’s help.
We’re still working our way through the backlog so if you’re waiting on information going up, it shouldn’t be too long now. Thank you for your patience and support!
