Joseph Herman   S/10653   1st Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders


Mrs Joseph Herman, 22 Willison Street, Dundee, is greatly perplexed as to the fate of her husband, Lance-Corporal Joseph Herman, who joined the 1st Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders shortly after the declaration of war.  He had not been in training many months when he was sent to France.  He was always a regular writer, but it is now almost six months since Mrs Herman had a letter from him and in reply to a communication regarding his whereabouts the record office at Inverness stated they were unable to give any particulars regarding him.

No information had arrived that he was in any way wounded or missing. Lance-Corporal Herman is 32 years of age, and was formerly employed with the Caledon Shipbuilding and Engineering Company, Limited.

Dundee Courier 19th June 1915

Mrs Joseph Herman, 22 Willison Street, Dundee, has received intimation that her husband Joseph Herman of the Cameron Highlanders, who has been reported as missing, was killed on 11th November, 1914.  Before joining he was employed in Caledon Shipyard.
