John McFarlane 2126 4th Black Watch
DUNDEE TERRITORIAL MISSING.
Uncertainty exists regarding the fate of Lance-Corporal John M’Farlane, 4th Black Watch, who is officially posted as missing. Conflicting reports have been received by his wife, who resides at 3 Artillery Lane, Dundee, and mother, 3 Urquhart Street, and they would be greatly obliged to any member of Dundee’s Own who could supply them with definite information. Lance-Corporal M’Farlane joined the Dundee Territorials shortly after war broke out, previous to which he was employed in the city as a labourer.
