More about Thomas McIntosh



A widow and three children are left to mourn the loss of Pte. Thos. M’Intosh, of the 2d Gordon Highlanders.  The sad intelligence that he was killed in action on the 13th of March has been communicated by the War Office to Mrs M’Intosh, who resides at 31 Edward Street, Dundee.  It is only two months ago since Pte. M’Intosh left the country for France, having enlisted a month previously.  He had a considerable experience of military duty, however, for he served with the Gordon Highlanders for sixteen years, and this war was the third in which he had taken part.

Private M’Intosh was with the Tirah Expeditionary Force in 1897-98, and also went through the Boer War, and neither campaign did he receive a wound.  He held the India Medal and clasps, 1895; Punjab Frontier and Tirah Medal, 1897-98, the Africa Medal and clasp for the defence of Ladysmith, Laing’s Nek, and Belfast, and the King’s South Africa Medal and clasps, 1901-02.
