More about William Stewart

William Stewart   20720   Royal Scots


A victim of the war is Mrs William Stewart, 41 Lochgelly Road, Lumphinnans, who yesterday received official information that her husband, Private William Stewart, of the Royal Scots, was killed in action on July 15.

Stewart who was a miner with the Wilson Clyde Coal Company, Glencraig, enlisted at the outbreak of war, and ever since his going to France, thirteen months ago, has been engaged as a sniper because of his expert shooting.  He leaves a widow and three of a family.
