More about Charles Morton Urquhart

Charles Urquhart   S/7729   Seaforth Highlanders

Private Charles Urquhart of the Seaforth Highlanders, who was in his 34th year, was the fifth son of the late Mr David Urquhart, quarrier, 88 Liff Road, Lochee.  He enlisted some six months ago, and after a period of training at Fort George was sent over to France.  Prior to enlisting he was a calender worker in the employment of Messrs Spalding & Valentine (Caledonian Works), Lochee.  Deceased leaves a widow and four of a family to mourn his loss.  A sad circumstance lies in the fact of an infant child having been buried only a fortnight ago.  His eldest brother John, is also serving at the front in another battalion of the same regiment.
