James Jack   13838   Scots Guards

DUNDEE SCOTS GUARDSMAN FALLS IN ACTION.

Intimation has been received by Mr and Mrs Jack, 74 Ferry Road, Dundee, that their eldest son, Private James Jack, Scots Guards, was killed in action on October 9.  He was 23 years of age, and prior to enlistment was employed in the Dundee Slaughter House.  He enlisted in April, 1915, and had been in France 16 months.

An officer writing to Mr and Mrs Jack about their son says :–“He was quite one of the best Lewis gunners in the company.  He was very popular with everyone and his loss is much felt in the company.”
