More about David F. Stewart

For reasons unknown David is not listed on the original Dundee Roll of Honour, but is remembered on the Peoples Journal War Memorial Supplement of 1925. There is no record of David Stewart, 25363, listed on C.W.G.C. S.D.G.W. or the Scottish National War Memorial, although his death was reported in the Dundee Courier.

The number 25363 was allocated to David Campbell, Seaforth Highlanders, who is listed on the original Dundee Roll of honour. The attached pension documents gives names and address’s for David Campbell 25363 which are also recorded for David Stewart 25363, it would appear that this is the same man, although there is no indication as to why they appear to be listed as two separate individuals.
