This is Dundee's story of those that served in the First World War, and of the people left at home
James leaves for France
Elizabeth came to terms with James joining the war. Since signing up, their relationship had somehow improved. James seemed relieved. He was once again proud; a quality about him that had somewhat disappeared since men began leaving for the front. She truly appreciated the pressure men were under to fight. They spent Christmas 1916 together and on January 7, 1917 she waved him goodbye from Tay Bridge Station.
