More about George Ogilvie

George has no known grave but is remembered on the Menin Gate Memorial. He was the brother of Pte Benjamin Ogilvie 3/1513, 1st Battalion Black Watch who was killed in action on the same day and in the same battle as his brother. The two other brothers David (Highland Light Infantry) & Robert (Gordon Highlanders) both served in the Great War with both returning safely.
