Major M’Gregor, whose mother resides at 5 Temple Lane, had been in the army for six years, enlisting when he was only 17 years of age, and had been in France since the commencement of the war.  He had been four times wounded.  Prior to joining up he was employed in Belmont Works, Hawkhill (Thomas Bell & Sons, Limited).  Mrs M’Gregor’s other son, who has been in the army for 15 years is at present serving with the Royal Scots Fusiliers in France.
