More about George Paterson

George Paterson   3/1138   3rd Black Watch


The intimation of the death of Private George Paterson, 3rd Black Watch, is somewhat belated, as he died from wounds on 26th January.  Deceased was twenty-four years of age, and prior to being called up was employed as a carter with Messrs Wordie & Co., carting contractors, in Dundee.  He resided at 7 Crescent Street, but his wife has for some time been living with her mother at 194 Overgate.
