FATAL LA BASSEE.
Another Dundee Soldier Killed.
News of the death of another Dundee soldier at La Bassee on 25th January has just been received. Mrs Wynne 110 Blackness Road, has received information that her husband, Lance-Corporal John Wynne was killed in action on the occasion of the terrible fight in that district. Deceased, who was 38 years of age, was a reservist, having been through the Boar War without receiving a scratch. He was employed in the goods department of the North Railway Company, when he was called up, and after a fortnight’s stay at Nigg, he was drafted out to the front.
He is survived by a widow and three children.
