BROUGHTY FUSILIER DIES OF WOUNDS.

The parents of Private Thomas Nicoll, residing in King Street, Broughty Ferry, have been informed that their son has died of wounds received in action.

He went into action on the 1st inst. with the Royal Scots Fusiliers, and was wounded in the left leg, which had to be amputated.  Writing to his parents on the 5th inst., he told them of his wound, adding, “don’t worry, as I don’t think it is dangerous.”

Deceased, who had been twelve months at the front, and was 20 years of age, was a bleacher at Balunie when he enlisted.  His father is serving in the Garrison Artillery, and a younger brother is in the H.D. Cycle Corps.
