John Culley   21970   Royal Scots


Dundee has contributed many men to the famous Royal Scots, the senior regiment of the British line, and many of them have fallen in the very forefront of battle.  To the long roll of honour of the Royal Scots has to be added the name of Private John Culley, whose mother resides at 62 Lilybank Road, Dundee.  She received official information yesterday that her son had been killed in action.  Private Culley was 31 years of age.  Previous to enlistment he was employed in Constable Works, Dura Street, belonging to Malcolm Ogilvie & Co., Ltd.
