More about Keith Martin

Keith has no known grave but is remembered on the Arras Memorial.

A clerk with his father, 9 Exchange Lane, Dundee, Private Martin joined the Seaforth Highlanders in 1917. He went to France in December and was only 19 at the time of his death. He was one of a little band of Seaforths holding an important position. One by one the members of the party were shot down but the gallant lad kept on fighting until he, too, was killed.
