More about Peter Peebles

Peter Peebles Second-Lieutenant Black Watch

Second-Lieut, Peter Peebles,  Black Watch, who was killed in action on 19th July, was formerly an employee in the circulation department of the “Courier” Office, Dundee, and his many friends in Dundee and Broughty Ferry will learn with regret of his death.  He enlisted in the Black Watch during the autumn of 1914.  His promotion was rapid, and in a comparatively short time he rose to the rank of instructor sergeant, in which capacity he served until the end of last year, when he obtained his commission.  He had been in France since April last.  Deceased, who was 28 years of age, was married in February last.  His widow resides in Leeds, while his mother is at present in China.
