More about George Ramsay Milne

George R. Milne   116448   Royal Garrison Artillery


Gunner George R. Milne, R.G.A., has died of wounds.  The sad intelligence was conveyed to his wife yesterday in a letter received from a chaplain, who stated that he had been struck in many places.

Gunner Milne, who was 35 years of age, joined the colours about eleven months ago, and had been about six months in France.  Prior to enlistment he was employed as a mason with Mr William Bennet, Dundee.  His wife and six of a family reside at 1 Smith Street, Dundee.

A brother of deceased died of dysentery in German East Africa in June last.
