George Dalziel 2033 1st Black Watch
A CHUM’S SAD TASK.
Private George Dalziel, 1st Black Watch, is another Dundee victim of the recent severe fighting. Deceased’s relatives, who reside at 38 Kemback Street, received the intimation of his death in a postcard from Pte. H. Cunningham, of the same regiment. He writes :–“Just a few lines to let you know that Pte. George Dalziel has fallen in action. As I am a chum of his it was his last wish that I would inform you.”
Private Dalziel, who was 21 years of age, had been about four years in the Black Watch, and before he enlisted was an apprentice engineer in Lilybank Foundry. A brother, Pte. Peter Dalziel, is at present in the fighting line in the ranks of the Canadians.
