More about George Glenday
VICTIM OF MACHINE GUN FIRE.
Private George Glenday, whose home is at 57 Hill Street, was also killed on 9th May. Official notification came to hand yesterday. Private Glenday was only eighteen years of age, and was a member of the late Lieut. Weinberg’s platoon. Information from the front indicates that the lad fell a victim to machine gun fire. He enlisted after the outbreak of war. His father, who is an old 3rd V.B.R.H. man, is now in the ranks of the 2/4th Black Watch at Bridge of Earn. Private Glenday was employed as a machinist prior to the war.
