Thomas Hendry 1896 Black Watch
KILLED A YEAR AGO.
Private Thomas Hendry, Black Watch, was killed a year ago—on the 25th September—and yet it is only now that the reported death could with certainty be confirmed. The official news came to his widow, who resides at 8 City Road, over the week-end. Private Hendry was a Territorial, and left for the front in February, 1915. He was employed in a Dundee foundry. He leaves a young family.
