James Sutherland Black Watch
Mr and Mrs Wm. Sutherland, 13 South Ellen Street have been officially informed that their son, Pte. James Sutherland, Black Watch, has been killed in action. Deceased who was 22 years of age, was attached to the signal section of the Black Watch, with which regiment he had been at the front for eighteen months. A sad feature of his death is the fact that he was killed two days after his birthday. In a letter of sympathy to his mother the O.C. the signal section states:–“Your son was killed on the 28th March. I cannot speak too highly of him. He fell beside many comrades in an attack full of spirit and enthusiasm.” Prior to enlisting at the beginning of the war, Private Sutherland was employed as a baker with Mr James Gibb, 164 Albert Street. Mr and Mrs Sutherland have a younger son serving with the Gordon Highlanders in France.
