More about Peter Duncan

There is no Peter Duncan, 644 listed on either C.W.G.C. or S.D.G.W. although the following appeared in the Evening Telegraph. There is a medal index card for a Peter Butchart Duncan, who initially served with the Highland Divisional Cyclists before being commissioned as a Lieutenant and serving with the Army Ordnance Corps. His address was listed as 3 Rockfield Tce, Dundee and it would appear that he survived the Great War.
