More about Patrick Carroll

DUNDEE SOLDIER KILLED BY MINE EXPLOSION.
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.
Dundee Courier 25 May 1916
