More about Peter Ellis

Peter Ellis  7347  Scottish Rifles

Mrs Ellis, who now lives at 13 Atholl Street, Lochee, has been officially notified of the death from wounds of Private Peter Ellis, of the Scottish Rifles.  Private Ellis died at Boulogne on 29th January, but the cause of the delay in the official intimation coming to hand is due to the military authorities having been under the impression that Mrs Ellis still resided in Glasgow.
