George Milne   23061   K.O.S.B.

Obliging and Unselfish.

Mrs Milne, 64 Hilltown, Dundee, has received a letter from an officer informing her that her husband, Pte. George Milne K.O.S.B., was killed in action on September 1.  The officer writes :–“He was always cheery, and was very popular with the men in his platoon.  I liked him very much, as he was always so obliging and unselfish.”  Pte. Milne was 37 years of age, and was a native of Dundee.  He enlisted at the beginning of 1916, and before joining up was a clerk for about 17 years in the employ of Messrs J. & P. Cameron, N.B. Railway carting agents.
