DUNDEE SOLDIER KILLED IN THE TRENCHES.
Private Thomas Pace, a young Dundee soldier belonging to the 1st Cameron Highlanders, was killed in the trenches on 6th February. News of his death was received yesterday by his parents, who reside at 30 Hilltown. Then came a letter from Major Baird, of the Camerons. The deceased soldier was only 19 years of age.
