More about Patrick Carroll

Patrick Carroll  6835  Argyll and Southern Highlanders 


Private Patrick Carroll, Argyll and Southern Highlanders, whose parents reside at 10 Hean’s Lane, Dundee, lies in hospital at Exeter suffering from a gunshot wound in the chest.

He received his wound in the recent fierce fighting.  Two of his brothers are with the colours—one with the Army Service Corps and the other with the Black Watch.

Dundee Courier 31st May 1915

Pte. Patrick Carroll, of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, after a long spell of active service, has met his death as the result of the exploding of a mine.
Pte. Carroll, whose home is at 10 Hean’s Lane, Dundee, belonged to a soldiering family, and the father and two of deceased’s brothers are still serving. The father is in the Labour Section of the Royal Engineers, one of the brothers is in the Black Watch, and the other is in the Army Service Corps. Deceased, who was nineteen years of age, was wounded last year, but had returned to the front.
A letter has been received from deceased’s platoon officer, who says he cannot speak too highly of Pte. Carroll’s conduct all the time he had been in his platoon. He was ever ready to do his duty, and was always cheerful.
