Edward Carroll   1392   2nd Black Watch

ONE OF THE BLACK WATCH FROM INDIA.

Official intimation has been received by Mrs Carroll, 92 Brook Street, Dundee, that her son, Private Edward Carroll, 2d Black Watch, was killed in action on 25th September.

Pte. Carroll, who was 25 years of age, served seven years with his regiment.  He proceeded to France from India, where he was stationed for over five years.  He was home on furlough a little over a month ago, and it was the first time his parents had seen him for over five years.  A sympathetic letter was sent by the officer to whom deceased was servant.
