Archibald Brown Troup   456  Black Watch

Private J. Troup, son of Sergeant-Drummer Archibald Troup, who was killed on 9th May, arrived at his home in Broughty on Monday night from France.  He is a member of the 4th Black Watch, and is home for only a short furlough.  The fighting during the fortnight before he left was of a particularly fierce character.
