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.
