Arthur Hunter   559  Scottish Horse

BROUGHTY FERRY TROOPER KILLED.

Trooper Arthur Hunter, Scottish Horse, son of Mr James Hunter, grocer, Gray Street, Broughty Ferry, has fallen at the Dardanelles.

No fewer than four letters came to hand yesterday—two from Scottish Horse men and two from members of the Fife and Forfar Yeomanry—stating that Hunter had been killed in action.  He had enlisted previous to the war, and was employed in the sanitary office Dundee.

One of the letters came from Trooper George Thomson, Scottish Horse, who informed his parents that he himself had been wounded.  Thomson is a son of Mr Alexander Thomson, Bath Cottage, Broughty Ferry.
