MYSTERY SURROUNDS DISAPPEARANCE
OF DUNDEE TERRITORIAL IN FRANCE.
Mystery surrounds the disappearance from the battlefield in France of Private Lamont, a Dundee Territorial, attached to the 4th Black Watch.
His mother, who resides at 21 Annfield Row, Dundee, has had official intimation that he went missing on 25th September, but one of his chums who was home on furlough states that he saw him being brought into the British lines wounded in three places.
Mrs Lamont would be much obliged to any member of the “Fourth” who could give her authentic news regarding her son. A Territorial of three years’ service, Pte. Lamont is 21 years of age, and prior to the war was employed as an apprentice baker in Dundee. His father, Private, Peter Lamont, who also went to France with the 4th Black Watch, is now attached to the Army Service Corps (Supply Column).
