More about Alexander Scott

Coincidentally, Alexander died at Perth War Hospital (according to C.W.G.C. records) on the same day as his Submarine K-4 was lost with all hands in a collision in the River Forth when she was taking part in an exercise, this disaster became known as the Battle of May Island.
