Adam Munro   312992   1st Black Watch

DUNDEE SOLDIER PRESUMED DEAD.

The Army Council conclude that Private A. Munro, a Dundee lad who belonged the 1st Black Watch, and who has been missing for well nigh ten months, must be dead.

Intimation to that effect has been received by his mother, Mrs S. Munro, who resides at 2 Cherryfield Lane.  Private Munro, who was an only son, and was 26 years of age, has not been heard of since the battle of 9th May.  He was called up as a reservist at the outbreak of war, being employed as a shipyard worker in the city, and a short time later was in France.
