Hood Bn. War Diary records no casualties 16/10/16, but records three casualties killed 18-19/10/16 (one killed 18th & two killed 19th), which is at odds with the official dates reported for the three men:- G. Miller (16/10/16), S.Martin (18/10/16) & J.Clark (19/10/16). AB Miller was probably one of the two men recorded as killed on 19/10/16. ; A Butcher ; b.15/6/1895 ; Next-of-Kin & home address: Mother, Jane, 11 Morgan St., Dundee.
DUNDEE MEMBER OF R.N.D. KILLED
Another Dundee member of the Royal Naval Division has fallen in action. Mr and Mrs Millar, who reside at 11 Morgan Street, Dundee, have received notification that their son, A.B. George Millar, of the Royal Naval Division, has been killed in action. A.B. Millar joined the R.N.D. in June, 1915, and saw service in the Dardanelles.
In a letter to his mother a comrade states that he was killed instantaneously, and was buried in a little regimental cemetery. A brother of the deceased Private Peter Millar, is serving with the K.O.S.B., and is awaiting orders for active service.
