James Gardiner 3/3082 Black Watch
MISSING SINCE BATTLE OF LOOS.
The relatives of Private J. Gardiner, Black Watch, who has been posted missing since the 25th of September, are anxious that any one knowing the fate which befell him in the battle of Loos should acquaint them of it. Private Gardener, who was twenty-four years of age, was a miner at Cardenden previous to enlisting at the outbreak of war. His next-of-kin is a married sister, Mrs Mauchland, who resides at 19 Crescent Lane, Dundee.
