George Hughes a discharged soldier, belonging to Dundee, with 13 years’ service, who was wounded at Mons, died suddenly on the highway at Cults, Fife.

He had been hawking along with his brother-in-law, and had come over the hill from Kennoway.  Not feeling well he sat down by the roadside, while his brother-in-law proceeded to a neighbouring farm for some tea, and on returning he found Hughes dead.
