DUNDEE RESERVIST KILLED IN ACTION.

Private J. Fraser of the 1st Battalion Royal Scots Fusiliers, a Dundee reservist, has died a soldier’s death.

The sad intimation was received from the War Office yesterday by his mother, who resides at 4 M’Vicar’s Lane, Perth Road, in answer to inquiry she made, Mrs Fraser had not heard from her son for a considerable time, and becoming anxious she wrote to the War Office, and received the reply that he was killed in action at Ypres on 22nd October.  Private Fraser was unmarried and served through the South African War.  He was 33 years of age.
