John Farquhar   S/3202   8th Black Watch


Mr and Mrs Farquhar, who reside at 90 Albert Street, Dundee, are in a state of great anxiety regarding the real fate of their son, Private John Farquhar, 8th Black Watch.  They have received a letter from an officer, who states that their son was last seen on 25th September severely wounded.  The officer adds that he might have passed through one of the clearing stations out of their area, as often been the case.

Private Farquhar, who is twenty years of age, was employed as a labourer in the Wallace Foundry when he enlisted at the outbreak of war.
