More about Thomas R. Ramsay

Before joining the Navy in January 1915 he was a butcher with Mr Thomas Duncan, High St, Carnoustie. He served at the Dardanelles, Egypt, and France, and was posted missing at Cambrai on the 31st December 1917. He was presumed to have died on that date. His commanding officer wrote:- “He fought most bravely and added fresh laurels to name of the Hood Battalion.”

Arbroath Roll of Honour Book, page 161.

Thomas is also remembered on the Carnoustie War Memorial & Panbride Churchyard War Memorial.
