More about George Clement Carmichael

George Clement Carmichael   Second Lieutenant Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders


Intimation has been received in Dundee of the death in action of Second Lieutenant George Clement Carmichael, 

Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, only son of Mr James W. Carmichael, of Messrs James Carmichael & Co., Ltd., Ward Foundry, Guthrie Street.  The sad intelligence reached Mr and Mrs Carmichael, who are residing at The Deans, Crieff, on Friday, and the news will be learned with deep regret by a large circle of friends in Dundee, and also Broughty Ferry, where the deceased officer was more intimately known.  The Lieutenant had adopted the same line of business as his father, and had not finished his apprenticeship as an engineer when war broke out.  Deceased was 24 years of age, and was a very popular officer.  He was educated at Seafield, Broughty Ferry, and afterwards at Repton College.  He was an enthusiast in all outdoor sports, and was a prominent member of the Forthill Cricket Club.
