DUNDEE SOLDIER BROTHERS
DIE ON THE SAME DAY.
Mrs Smith, 27 Wolseley Street, has been informed that her brother, Gunner George Galloway, 14th Battery, Motor Machine Gun Corps, died in an hospital in Jubbulpore, India, on 29th October, from the effects of pneumonia contracted after undergoing an operation for appendicitis. A sad coincidence regarding Gunner Galloway’s death is the fact that his brother Charles, who was a private in the Black Watch, died in Dundee Royal Infirmary from pneumonia on the same day.
George who was 23 years of age, enlisted three years ago, and after over two years of service in France was drafted to India eleven months ago. Before joining the forces, he was employed in the machine-room of the “Courier.”
Dundee Courier 12th December 1918
George’s brother was Pte Charles Brown Galloway, 154571 Machine Gun Corps, who died in Dundee 29.10.1918
