DUNDEE SOLDIER DIES OF WOUNDS AFTER TWO YEARS’ EXPERIENCE OF WAR. Pte Angus McLeod (left), a Dundee soldier in the Scottish Rifles, has been struck down after braving the terrors of war for two years.
Mr Angus McLeod, 62 Blackscroft, Dundee, yesterday received official intimation that his eldest son, Private Angus McLeod, had died of wounds. Deceased, who was twenty-four years of age, had served about five years in the army. The Scottish Rifles were stationed at Malta when the war broke out, and were included in the first Expeditionary Force which went to the assistance of our Allies.
Mr McLeod is himself an old campaigner, having served seven years with the colours, during which he was engaged in the Egyptian War, and for which he holds the medal and star with five clasps. Two of his sons are in the fighting line. Private Edward McLeod (22) (centre), H.L.I., has seen service in both France and Mesopotamia, and was wounded in both these theatres of war. Private Peter McLeod (right), a lad of seventeen years, is in the Black Watch. A son-in-law, Private David Bartie, of the Hussars, was killed in December, 1914.
