Fred Cowie   88905   Royal Engineers

From news which has just reached Broughty Ferry, it transpires that Sapper Fred Cowie, R.E., whose wife resides in Lawrence Street, was killed by a shell.  Sapper Cowie was the eldest son of Mr Fred Cowie, Bervie, and was in business as a tailor at Inchbare, when he enlisted three and a half years ago.
