DUNDEE SOLDIER REPORTED MISSING.

Mrs Gray, 167 Alexander Street, Dundee, has received intimation that her son, Private Angus Gray, 1st Black Watch, has been missing since 9th May.

Private Gray was a reservist, and was called up at the outbreak of war.  He is 28 years of age, and is married.  His wife and three children reside at 60 Blackness Road.

A younger son of Mrs Gray was a member of the 4th Black Watch, and served at the front for several months, but after coming through several hot engagements was sent home on account of his youth, Private Gray being only 18 years of age.
