DUNDEE POLICE SERGEANT RECEIVES

MILITARY MEDAL GAINED BY HIS SON.

Sergeant James Marshall, of the Dundee Police Force, 17 Lorimer Street, Dundee, has received the Military Medal awarded to his son, Private Daniel Marshall, Black Watch, who is presumed to have been killed in Mesopotamia.  Daniel enlisted in 1914, and went to France shortly afterwards, where he took part in much severe fighting.  In the battle of Loos he was wounded, and after his recovery he was sent to Mesopotamia.

Sergeant Marshall’s other son, Lindsay, is at present serving in the navy, while another son Robert, who was in the Black Watch, is now an engineer in the mercantile marine.
