Charles Livingstone   1510  1st Black Watch


The relatives of Private Charles Livingstone, 1st Black Watch, 281 Hilltown, Dundee, are anxious to get definite information regarding him.  Private Livingstone has been missing since 11th November, 1914, and no authentic word has been received since.  Private Livingstone, who is 28 years of age, was a well-known gymnast in Dundee, having been identified with the Y.M.C.A., team, and indeed, one year he was champion.

Private Livingstone has other two brothers in the army, Thomas, who is at present home wounded, is with the 2nd Black Watch, while Alfred is attached to the 4th Black Watch.  A brother-in-law, William Harris, is a first-class petty officer.
