FOREWORD. 



IN this volume the University of Aberdeen records the service and the 
sacrifices rendered by her Graduates, Alumni, Students, and Staff during 
the Great War, and does homage to the memory of those of them who 
achieved the greatest that men can and laid down their lives for their friends — 
and indeed for all men, in so far as they fought, suffered and died for ideals 
which are essential to the higher life of the race. 

They entered the War at various stages of its development. Some already 
held commissions in the Regular Forces of the Crown — a few as combatants 
and many more in the medical services of the Navy and the Army. A still 
greater number, mindful of their duty to share in the defence of their country, 
were, when war broke out, members of the Territorial Force, mainly in the 
University Company of the Fourth Gordons and in several Artillery and 
Medical units. Without hesitation all of these responded to the call to active 
service. Of the rest the great majority also joined the King's Forces as 
volunteers. Those who followed under conscription went with as ready and 
gallant a will as their predecessors. As the lists show, a considerable number 
from first to last came from over the seas. 

To us, whom hundreds of them consulted before enlisting, or who visited 
them during their training, it was clear that, with few exceptions, they offered 
themselves only after deliberation and with an understanding of the high issues 
which confronted our people from 191 4 onwards. Being from their education 
of more than average intelligence they were awake to what war meant and, as 
some of the following sketches reveal, they hated it — a hatred that deepened 
with every month's experience of its horrors. But their sense of duty to their 
people, to the Cause, and to themselves was still more strong and sustained 
them to the end. Their studies, or the practice of their professions, had been 
rudely broken. They entered on a discipline and a career alien to their 
previous habits and to the ideals of their education. Yet they took up their 
strange duties with alacrity and pursued them with a cheerful faithfulness ; while 
not a few of them, as also appears from their brief biographies, developed a 



vi FORE WORD. 

remarkable capacity, and in some cases a genius, for the profession of arms, 
to which they had been so suddenly called. 

What do we not owe to them ? In the first days of the War, when as a 
nation we knew ourselves unworthy of the awful trust committed to us and 
far from prepared to do battle for it, the ready will of our men to adventure all 
— coming forward as they did by hundreds of thousands — rebuked the national 
diffidence and rallied our hearts. The Cause which inspired such sacrifices 
could not be an unjust or a losing cause. And we continued to feel the steady- 
ing power of their example, till, under God, they overthrew the powerful foe — 
the victory of whose claims upon civilisation would have depressed the spirit of 
mankind for generations — and thereby averted from the world one of the 
greatest moral disasters that ever threatened it. In addition our own country 
was saved from a cruel invasion, and the yoke of foreign oppression was lifted 
from many other nationalities both in the West and in the East. To forget 
what we, what all men, owe morally and materially to their valour and unselfish- 
ness would be our shame and bitter loss. 

The Memorial Committee have felt it due to our Fallen to make our 
biographies of them somewhat fuller and more intimate than is usual in such 
Rolls of Service and Sacrifice. The Memorials which follow are the pious 
work of many hands and ( hearts — of relatives, of comrades, of teachers, and of 
company and battalion officers — to whose tributes we have given such room as 
the limits of our space allowed. We trust that thus not only will the names be 
preserved of brave men who fought for their country in the greatest crisis of 
her history but that something of their spirit may be communicated to future 
generations — some knowledge of how they fought and for what they fought and 
were ready to die. 

The University is greatly indebted to the Editor and her assistants for 
their devoted labours in issuing enquiries as to the service of each member of 
the University and in checking and compiling the multitudinous details sub- 
mitted to them in answer, or discovered by the Editor's own research. 

GEORGE ADAM SMITH, 

Principal. 



EDITOR'S PREFACE. 

THIS volume is designed to be a permanent Record of the part played 
by Members of the University of Aberdeen in the Great War. It has 
for its basis the Four Provisional Rolls of Service compiled by the 
Principal during the years of the War ; these were necessarily incomplete, but 
they formed the foundation of the present work. 

The Record falls into two parts, the In Memoriam Roll and the Roll of 
Service. The first part contains the names of those who gave their lives in the 
War, numbering 341, together with a short biographical notice of each, and 
wherever possible a portrait : in all 335 portraits have been obtained. The 
short biographies have been contributed by near relatives or intimate friends, 
or have been compiled from accounts which were considered reliable. They 
appear in chronological order according to the date of death, so that the names of 
those who fell side by side stand together on the printed page. The second part 
contains the names of Graduates, Alumni and Students, numbering 2,852, who 
went on Service — -whether in the Navy, or in the Army, or in the Air Force — or 
who did work of national importance arising out of the War. It includes Students 
whose names stand on the books of the University up to the Summer Session 
of 1920. The information given was supplied in response to a form which was 
widely circulated and in most cases is the writer's own report of his or her 
service, but edited so as to give a certain amount of uniformity. No index is 
required, as all the names appear in the Roll of Service arranged alphabetically ; 
those of the Fallen are in Tudor type, followed in each case by a reference to 
the page on which the biographical notice appears in the In Memoriam Roll. 
The two Appendices contain the names of Officials of the University who 
rendered War Service, and of civilian prisoners of war. 

Much valuable assistance has been accorded me. I have first to thank 
the War Memorial Record Sub-Committee, including Mr. P. J. Anderson 
and Mr. Theodore Watt, whose expert knowledge as regards paper, type, 
binding and illustrations was specially valuable. Amongst those who contri- 
buted biographical notices, were chiefly the Principal, Professor Cowan, Pro- 
fessor Davidson, Professor Baillie, Professor Grierson, Principal Stewart, Dr. 



viii EDITORS PREFACE. 

McPherson (Banff), Mr. Hyslop, Dr. D. I. Walker, Dr. Rorie, Dr. I. G. Innes, 
Mr. Gibson (Stornoway), Mr. Watt (Dingwall), Dr. Smith (of the Training- 
Centre), and Col. Fleming (Keith). Professor Hendrick undertook to supply 
biographies of all among the Fallen who were connected with the Agricultural 
Department of the University, in number some 48 ; this was a great help, and I 
am most grateful for his ever ready assistance. Professor Selbie not only con- 
tributed biographies of all who had attended the United Free Church College, 
but also gave considerable time to proof-reading, for which he has my warm 
thanks. Others whom I should like to mention with gratitude, for the valuable 
help they gave to the work, are : Pfofessor Reid, Professor Harrower, Professor 
Macdonald, Rev. Alex. Miller (Buckie), Dr. J. F. Christie, Mr. A. C. Morrison, 
Mr. Edward Watt and Dr. J. O. Wilson (Huntly); and there are others 
whose interest, encouragement and sympathy have lightened my labour. 

I have been singularly fortunate in those who have worked along with me, 
Miss H. Ogilvie, Miss N. W r ilson, Miss Bisset, Miss A. Christie, Miss Cook, 
and others, and I am glad to have this opportunity of expressing my gratitude 
for their loyalty, enthusiasm and perseverance. 

To edit this Roll has been an honour and a privilege. No effort has been 
spared in trying to make it accurate and worthy, but none can be more con- 
scious of its shortcomings than the editor — the ideal is always a hand's breadth 
beyond one's grasp-

IN MEMORIAM. 



FRASER, THOMAS PEPPE : H.31. 
Colonial Medical Service, West Africa ; 

son of John Philip 
Fraser, Art Master ; 
born Aberdeen, 24 
April 1880; educated 
at Aberdeen Grammar 
School; graduated 
M.B., 1901 ; D.P.H. 
(Camb.), 1912. He 
held appointments as 
Hospital Physician in 
Denbigh, Grimsby, 
Swansea and Sunder- 
land, and for some 
years practised in Lon- 
don. Later he entered the Government service, 
was appointed to the Gold Coast, and thence 
transferred to Nigeria. 

Fraser's war service was very brief, for he 
was killed in the first month of the war, in a 
reconnaissance, while serving with a British force 
against the German colony of Togoland, 29 
August 1 9 14 ; he was buried at Mora, Northern 
Nigeria — the first of Alma's sons to fall in the 
Great War. 




ROBB, 
Major, 



ALEXANDER KIRKLAND: 

Durham Light Infantry; 

son of John Robb, 
Lieut. -Colonel, I. M.S.; 
born Poona, 26 August 
1872 ; educated at 
Aberdeen Grammar 
School; student in 
Arts, 1889-91 ; re- 
ceived his professional 
training at the Military 
College, Sandhurst. 
From there he passed 
out first in 1893, win- 
ning the sword of 
honour. Gazetted in 
2nd Battalion Durham 
active service on the 




the same year to the 
Light Infantry, he sai 



N.W. Frontier with the King's Own Yorkshire 
L.I. He distinguished himself in various en- 
gagements, was mentioned in dispatches, and 
received the Tirah medal with two clasps. After 
a term of duty in Burma, he rejoined his regi- 
ment in Ireland; and before August 1914 was 
acting as lecturer in military subjects at Durham 
University, and Adjutant to the O.T.C. there. 

Major Robb's battalion was sent to the Front 
three weeks after the outbreak of war ; and it 
was in their first engagement, at the Battle of the 
Aisne, on the 20 September 19 14, that he fell. 
Though severely wounded in a bayonet charge, 
he continued to lead his men up to about 
thirty yards from the enemy trenches. The 
story of how he was brought in by a private of 
his battalion does honour to his rescuer ; and 
scarcely less to him, showing as it does the 
devotion which he inspired. Major Robb died 
in a hospital at Troyon the same night. He 
was an officer whom his regiment had cause to 
love and honour, a brave leader, and a courteous 
and considerate friend. 

MEARNS, WILLIAM MELLIS : Surgeon, 
R.N. ; son of William Mearns, medical practi- 
tioner, Gateshead-on- 
T y n e ; born Gates- 
head-on-Tyne, 7 
December 1884 ; ma- 
triculated in Medicine, 
1902 ; M.B., 1908. 

As a student Mearns 
served in the Uni- 
versity Volunteer 
Company. He re- 
ceived a Commission 
as Surgeon in the 
Royal Navy, 6 Nov. 
1908, and served till 
the outbreak of war in China, the Persian Gulf, 
etc. He was appointed Medical Officer to 
H.M.S. "Formidable," August 1914, and served 
with the Home Fleet. The official record of his 
death runs: "On 1 January 191 5 this ship was 




IN MEMORIAM. 




torpedoed when going down Channel, and un- 
fortunately this most promising officer lost his 
life. His reports show that he was an officer 
of high attainments." 

LEGGE, ANGUS FORSYTH : Lieuten- 
ant, Singapore Volunteer Corps ; 

son of Rev. James W. 



Legge; born Aber- 
deen, 12 November 
1889 ; educated Aber- 
deen Grammar School ; 
graduated M. B. 
(Hons.), 1912, having 
gained medals and 
prizes in all his classes ; 
D.P.H. (with credit), 
191 4. In 1913 and 
1 9 14 he held posts in 
the Royal Infirmary 
and Royal Asylum, 
Aberdeen ; he then proceeded to Singapore to 
take up an appointment, first, as Medical Super- 
intendent of the Hospital for infectious diseases, 
later in the Public Health Department, and was 
working there when war broke out. 

Legge joined the Singapore Volunteer Corps 
as Lieutenant in July 19 14 and was mobilized 
for garrison duty in August. He met his death 
in the quelling of a riot occasioned by the 
mutiny of a part of the 5th Light Infantry, an 
Indian regiment. "He with his stretcher-bearers, 
was following up the firing line, but in the darkness 
and the thick bush some of the mutineers got 
behind them, and Angus was shot from behind." 
He died the same day, 16 February 191 5. 
Angus Legge was a brilliant scholar and student 
and keenly interested in the sporting side of 
University life. He was always modest and un- 
assuming and very popular with all- who knew 
him. He had a most promising career before 
him. It is characteristic of Angus Legge that 
he met his death in undertaking a great risk to 
save a married friend from danger. 

RAMSAY, LEWIS NEIL GRIFFITT : 2nd 

Lieutenant, 3rd Battalion Gordon High- 
landers ; son of Sir W. M. Ramsay, LL.D., 
D.C.L., D.D., Emeritus Professor of Humanity 
in the University of Aberdeen ; born Aberdeen, 




3 February 1890 ; educated Merchiston School, 
Edinburgh ; Robert Gordon's College, Aber- 
deen ; University of 
Aberdeen; Christ's 
College, Cambridge. 
He graduated M.A., 
1 9 1 1 ; B.Sc., 1 9 1 2, 
with special distinction 
in Botany, and showed 
great promise as a 
naturalist, especially in 
the field of ornithology. 
His observing powers 
were very remarkable. 
As a Beit Fellow he 
worked for some time 

in the Imperial College of Science, London, and 
he also acted for a year with marked efficiency as 
Second Assistant in the Natural History Depart- 
ment, University of Aberdeen. There can be 
no doubt that he would have made his mark in 
science. At the University, Ramsay was known 
outside the classroom as' a keen sportsman. In 
hockey, running and swimming, he excelled, 
and he was an enthusiastic member of " U " 
Company, and of the O.T.C. at Cambridge. 

In August 1914 he joined the 4th Gordons 
as a private and was commissioned in November, 
accepting exchange to the 3rd (Special Reserve) 
Battalion. A week later he was ordered to join 
the 2nd Battalion in France where he served 
during the winter of 19 14-15. He came safely 
through the battle of Neuve Chapelle in March, 
but a few days later was shot by a sniper 
while repairing a trench on ground taken from 
the enemy, 21 March 191 5. 



WATT, EDWARD : 
Lance-C o r p o r a 1 , 
4th Battalion Sea- 
forth Highlanders ; 

son of David M. Watt, 
editor, "Ross-shire 
Journal," Dingwall ; 
born Fraserburgh, 3 1 
December 1892 ; edu- 
cated at Dingwall 
Academy ; entered the 
University, 191 1 ; 
graduated B.Sc. (Agr.), 




IN MEMORIAM. 



1 9 14. Possessed of a facile pen, he had hoped 
to apply his great energy and rare purposeful- 
ness to agricultural journalism. After gradua- 
tion he was appointed Assistant to the General 
County Organizer of the North of Scotland Col- 
lege of Agriculture. 

He enlisted in the 1/4-th Seaforths in October 
1914, and, refusing a commission, went to France 
with a draft in February 19 15. He was mortally 
wounded at Neuve Chapelle in March and died 
twelve days later at Boulogne, 22 March 19 15. 

CRUICKSHANK, JAMES ORR: 

Private, 4th Battalion Gordon High- 
landers ; second son 
of Samuel C r u i c k- 
shank, teacher, Tarf- 
side, Glenesk ; born 
Brechin, 17 August 
1895 ; educated there; 
matriculated in Arts 
and Science, 19 13. 

On the outbreak of 
war he was already a 
private in " U " Coy., 
4th Gordons, and 
underwent training 
with his regiment at 
Bedford, where his Captain had occasion to 
notice his intelligence and unselfish usefulness. 
In the following February he crossed with the 
regiment to the Front in Belgian Flanders. There 
he actively and dutifully served till he met his 
death, 15 April 1915, in the trench in front of 
Wytschaete from the bullet of a German sniper. 
He was the second of the University Company 
of the 4th Gordons to give his life for his country 
and her sacred cause. An able student and a 
modest, attractive personality — known, too, as a 
runner and member of the Harriers' Club — he 
was deeply mourned by his comrades both in 
the University and in the Regiment. His Cap- 
tain calls him " certainly one of the keenest 
members of my company . . . altogether a most 
likeable man and one of the best ". 

MacRAE, VICTOR CHARLES JAMES: 

Sergeant, 4th Battalion Gordon High- 
landers ; son of Donald MacRae, station- 
master ; born Inverness, 12 October 1892; 





educated Plockton Higher Grade Public School, 
and Aberdeen Grammar School; entered the 
University as 8th Bur- 
sar in 1 9 10, graduated 
M.A., 1 9 14, with First 
Class Honours in 
Classics — a remarkable 
performance, as by a 
chain of unforeseen 
circumstances, he had 
to undertake the ne- 
cessary work within 
one year. His Profes- 
sor wrote : — " he was 
a strikingly able stu- 
dent ". 

While still at the Grammar School, he had 
joined "D" (then the School) Company of the 
4th Battalion Gordon Highlanders. With it he 
was mobilized in August 1914, and crossed to 
France in 191 5. A few weeks later, on 21 
April 1915, he was killed, while attempting to 
remove a wounded comrade from a dangerous 
corner. That sniper's bullet ended a career of 
unusual possibilities, for Victor MacRae had a 
brain and a personality that might have carried 
him to the top of almost any ladder he chose to 
climb. He had versatility without shallowness, 
and a humorous philosophy of life that would 
have kept him unchanged through any vicissitude. 

SKINNER, ALEXANDER: Sergeant, 
4th Battalion Gordon Highlanders'; 

son of John Skinner, 
roadman ; born Ding- 
wall, 21 July 1889 ; 
educated Dingwall 
Academy ; Glasgow 
Technical College ; 
Aberdeen Provincial 
Training College; 
Aberdeen University 
(Arts and Science, 
1909-n). He joined 
" U " Coy., Gordon 
Highlanders while in 
Aberdeen. On being 

appointed assistant master and manual instructor 
of the Supplementary School, Dumbarton, he 
continued a member of the University Company. 




IN MEMORIAM. 



In August 19 14 he was in camp with the 
unit at Tain, and proceeded to the war station 
at Bedford from whence he went to France in 
February 19 15. He was killed in the trenches 
in Flanders on 22 April 19 15 by a rifle bullet 
which came from an enfilading flank 900 yards 
away. Alick Skinner was an excellent stamp 
of Highlander. "Your son," an officer wrote 
to the widowed mother, "was one of the finest 
men. He was a splendid soldier ... so re- 
liable and could ill be spared." 

GRAY, WILLIAM: Private, 2nd Bat- 
talion Canadian Infantry ; son of Henry 
Gray ; born Aberdeen, 
1 January 1882; edu- 
cated at Aberdeen 
Grammar School ; ma- 
triculated in Arts, 1899. 
He went to Winnipeg 
in 1903, and afterwards 
settled in Vancouver as 
a Real Estate Agent. 

Shortly after the 
outbreak of war, Gray 
enlisted in the 2nd 
Battalion Canadian In- 
fantry and after training 
at Valcartier, came to England. In January 
1 9 15 he went to France and served there and 
in Belgium till 23 April 1915, when he was 
killed in action at Hill 60. 

MACKAY, KEITH: Corporal, 4th 
Battalion Gordon Highlanders; 

son of George M. 
Mackay, schoolmaster; 
born Aberdeen, 3 
March 1895 ; educated 
Gordon's College; 
student in Arts and 
Medicine, 191 2 - 14 ; 
M.A., 1915 (posthum- 
ously conferred). 

Mackay joined the 
Gordons while still a 
pupil at Gordon's Col- 
lege and belonged* to 
" U " Company in 
which he became a Corporal. He was mobil- 
ized at the outbreak of war and went to France 





with the Battalion in March 1915, but was only 
a few weeks out when he was wounded in the 
trenches near Kemmel. He died in hospital at 
Bailleul from the effects of the wound on 28 April 

1915-. 

Keith Mackay was one who took a foremost 
place among his contemporaries both in work 
and in the social side of School and 'Varsity 
life, and he gave great promise of success in his 
chosen profession of medicine. 

MITCHELL, ALEXANDER: Private, 4th 
Battalion Gordon Highlanders; 

born Aberdeen, 5 
February 1890. In 
191 1 he came up to 
the University, and was 
just finishing his Arts 
course with a view to 
entering the teaching 
profession, when war 
was declared. 

He was one of those 
who responded early 
to the appeal for men, 
and left for Bedford 
with the first draft of 

the 4th Gordons. After a few months spent in 
training, he was sent out to France, and was 
soon in action. It was whilst digging a com- 
munication trench near Kemmel that he was 
hit by a stray bullet and received the wound 
which proved fatal. He died next day — 28 
April 1 91 5 — in a Field Hospital. Mitchell 
proved himself at college, in the hard mon- 
otonous work of the field, as well as in action, 
willing, modest and courageous. 

GORDON, GEOFFREY: Lieutenant, 
12th Royal Lancers; son of Rev. A. Gordon, 
Unitarian minister, Belfast; born Belfast, 15 
October 1881 ; educated at Grafton House 
School, Manchester, entering Aberdeen Uni- 
versity in 1899. In 1903 he graduated M.A. 
with Second-Class Honours in Mathematics, 
and passed into the Indian Civil Service in 
1904. After a short time in Assam, he became 
Assistant Commissioner in the Punjab ; and for 
five years served as lieutenant and captain in the 
Punjab Light Horse, Indian Volunteers. 




IN MEMORIAM. 



At the outbreak of war Gordon was on fur- 
lough. He at once entered the Special Reserve 
of Officers, and received a commission in the 
1 2th Royal Lancers. On 30 April 191 5 he 
fell in action in France. His Indian record was 
one of courage and character, and gave promise 
of even greater distinction than he had already 
achieved. The Lieutenant-Governor of the 
Province, in a letter to the " Punjab Gazette," 
recalls the difficult and dangerous situations 
which he had had to face in the pursuance of 
his duty, and which he had always met with 
intrepid coolness; and speaks of him as "a 
gallant officer and a fearless gentleman ". 

KNOWLES, JOHN FORBES: Private, 

4th Battalion Gordon Highlanders ; son 

of George Knowles, 
Aberdeen ; born Aber- 
deen, 26 February 
1 89 1 ; educated at the 
Grammar School; 
graduated M. A., 1912 ; 
entered the U.Fr Col- 
lege in the same year 
and continued his 
studies there till the 
outbreak of AVar. 

In October 19 14 he 
rejoined "U" Com- 
pany, 4th Gordon 
he had served in his 
student days. Though his health was not robust, 
Knowles stuck to soldiering and had just re- 
joined the Battalion from hospital the day before 
his death. He was the first of trie U.F. 
College students to enlist and the first to fall, 
being killed by a sniper's bullet in the neigh- 
bourhood of Ypres oh 5 May 1915. 

His genial sunny temperament made Knowles 
a favourite with his fellow-students. His ex- 
ceptional gifts as an elocutionist, combined with 
his scholarship, pointed to a distinguished career 
as a preacher. He was an active and successful 
worker in the Mission carried on by the U.F. 
students in the East end of Aberdeen. 

CRICHTON, DAVID WOOD : Private, 4th

the University as a student in Agriculture, 1913. 

His bright and 
cheery nature was al- 
ready making him very 
popular among his fel- 
low-students when, as 
a member of " U " 
Company, 4th Gor- 
dons, he was mobilized 
in August 1 9 14. In 
February 19 15 he went 
overseas with his unit, 
one of the youngest 
students in* the com- 
pany. He was killed 

in action on 7 May 1915 at Kemmel, Belgium, 
and lies in the Gordon Cemetery there along 
with many other members of " U " Company.

1895 ; educated H. G. 
School, Kingussie ; ma- 
triculated in agricul- 
ture 1 91 3, and studied 
for the University Dip-

IN ME MORI AM. 




3rd Dragoon Guards with whom he served in 
the South African War. On the conclusion 
of that war he served in the African Mounted 
Police. 

He rejoined the 3rd Dragoon Guards in Sep- 
tember 1 9 14 and proceeded to France in No- 
vember of the same year. He died, 22 May 
19 1 5, from wounds received at Loos in the pre- 
ceding month. 

MURRAY, JAMES SAN FORD: 
Sapper, Royal Engineers; son of 

Rev. James Murray, 
D.D., missionary; 
born Smyrna, 3 Janu- 
ary 1895 ; educated 
Gordon's College; 
came up to the Uni- 
versity in 1 91 2, and 
was a student in Arts, 
1912-14. 

Whilst at Gordon's 
College Murray joined 
" E " Company, 4th 
Gordon Highlanders, 
and was mobilized 
August 1 9 14. During his training at Bedford 
he proved himself so efficient in signalling that 
he was transferred to the 51st (Highland Divi- 
sional) Signal Company, R.E. In April 1915 
he went with his Company to France, and a few 
weeks later, on 27 May 19 15, he died of wounds 
received in action at Vieille Chappelle. Testi- 
mony to his work was borne by the words of his 
CO., who wrote : " One of the finest young 
soldiers I ever met, always ready and willing to 
do his work any time, and when we were very 
busy quite pleased to work his twelve hours 
without grumbling ". 

MIDDLETON, ROBERT HUGH: Pri- 
vate, 4th Battalion Gordon Highlanders ; 

son of David Middleton, farmer ; born Liver- 
pool, 5 December 1892 ; educated Robert Gor- 
don's College, Aberdeen ; matriculated in Arts, 
191 2. At the University he showed exceptional 
talent and ability as an English scholar. To 
" Alma Mater " he was a frequent contributor of 
prose and verse which showed real gifts, wide 
reading and much originality. 




Enlisting in the University Company of the 
4th Gordons in 1913, Middleton trained with 
them at Bedford and 
served with his unit in 
Flanders, till he was 
killed in action at 
Hooge, 1 June 1915. 
A University friend 
who was with him in 
the trenches wrote : 
" He was not one of 
those who grow less 
lovable as they grow 
more intimately 
known, because he 
had sympathy, taste 

and understanding ". With his eyes open, re- 
alizing all the sacrifice he might be called upon 
to make, he yet was " eager for the glorious and 
glad adventure," and, following the path of duty, 
joined the ranks of those " whose life was all to- 
morrow — and they died to-day." 

GUTHRIE, HECTOR MacLENNAN: 
Lieutenant, 3rd Battalion Lanca- 
shire Fusiliers; 

son of James Guthrie, 
commercial traveller; 
born Portsoy, 1 1 July 
1892; educated at 
Fordyce Academy; 
entered Aberdeen 
University as 2nd 
Bursar, 19 10; gradu- 
ated M.A. with First 
Class Honours in 
English, in 1914. 
Though he died "un- 
known to fame," those who knew Guthrie in 
his student days felt that, with his love of 
literature, his wealth of knowledge and his 
naturally easy and beautiful style, he would have 
made a place for himself in the higher ranks of 
students and writers of English. 

A sergeant in " U " Company of the 4th Bat- 
talion Gordon Highlanders, he proceeded to 
Bedford for service with the Battalion in August 
1 9 14. Eager to increase his chances of being 
sent to the Front early in the war, he applied for 
and obtained a commission in the 3rd Battalion 




IN MEM OR! AM. 



Lancashire Fusiliers (S.R.) in October 1914. 
In May 191 5 he was sent to the Dardanelles. 
Within a month he was reported missing after 
an attack on the Turkish trenches. His death 
on 4 June 191 5 was later officially confirmed. 
Thus were cut off a character of uncompromising 
honour and an intellect of exceptional keen- 
ness. 

CUMMING, MARIANUS ALEXANDER: 

Lance-Corporal, 4th Battalion Gordon 
Highlanders ; son of 
Marianus Gumming, 
baker ; bom Strichen, 
9 December 1891 ; 
educated Maud H.G. 
School and Gordon's 
College ; took a high 
place in the Bursary 
competition ; graduated 
M.A., 191 2 ; Assistant 
Master at Kemnay. 
He was considered, by 
those who came in con- 
tact with him profes- 
sionally, as a teacher of promise much above 
the average. 

As a student, Cumming was an enthusiastic 
volunteer, enlisted in "U" Company in 1910, 
remaining a member after he left the University. 
He was called up at the outbreak of war. After 
training at Bedford he served in Flanders with 
the Machine Gun Section, 4th Gordon High- 
landers, till 13 June 19 15, when he fell in 
action. 




LYON, HARRY 




Private, 4th Bat- 
talion Gordon 
Highlanders ; son of 
Henry Lyon, manager, 
Aberdeen ; born Aber- 
deen, 2 February 1893 ; 
educated Gordon's 
College, and the Uni- 
versity, where he ma- 
triculated in 19 1 2. He 
studied in Arts for two 
years, with the intention 
of proceeding to Medi- 
cine. He was a stu- 



dent of fine promise and also took a prominent 
part in sports both at school and the University. 
In September 19 14 he enlisted in the 4th 
Gordon Highlanders and went with the Battalion 
to France as a member of the Machine Gun 
Section. He proved himself of much value, 
and carried out all his duties quietly and effici- 
ently, showing himself to be the true sportsman, 
whose qualities could endure a sterner test than 
that of the playing field. He was killed in 
action at Hooge, 16 June 191 5. 

Mac IYER, MURDO: Corporal, 4th 
Battalion Gordon Highlanders; 

son of Alexander Mac- 
Iver, fisherman ; born 
Coll, Stornoway, 3 
June 1890 ; educated 
Back Public School 
and Nicolson Institute, 
Stornoway ; student in 
Arts, 191 1 - 14, com- 
bining with attendance 
at the University his 
training for the teach- 
ing profession, until 
war broke off his 
studies. 

He put in his period of Territorial training 
with the Ross Mountain Battery during his 
secondary course at school, and on going to 
Aberdeen joined the University Company of the 
Gordon Highlanders, with which he was mobil- 
ized on the outbreak of war. After five months 
of training at Bedford he went to Flanders, 
where he took part with his Battalion in the 
very heavy fighting in front of Ypres through 
the early months of 1915. He was killed in 
action there during an advance against the 
enemy on 16 June 1915, when "our men be- 
haved magnificently," and the Gordons covered 
themselves with glory. 

SCOTT, WILLIAM LESLIE: Lieuten- 
ant, 5th Battalion Gordon Highlanders ; 

son of William Leslie Scott, solicitor ; born 
Peterhead, 24 December 1892 ; student in Medi- 
cine, 1911-14. 

As a 4th year Medical student, Scott had 
every right to consider himself entitled to finish 
his course before joining the Army, so he re-

turned to College in October 19 14, but the 
desire to take an active part in the fighting was 
too strong for him, and 
he obtained a commis- 
sion in the 5 th Gordons 
in December 191 4, 
having previously 
served in the O.T.C. 

After a few months 
training at home, he 
was sent to France 
where he was in charge 
of the bombing section 
of his Battalion. In 
the very short time 
which elapsed before 
his death, he showed himself a leader of daunt- 
less spirit, regardless of personal danger. A 
fellow-officer wrote: "He made a magnificent 
officer, and a very cheery trench companion ". 
He was killed at Festubert while entering a 
German trench with a party of bombers on 16 
June 1915. 

FOWLIE, ANDREW THOMSON : Lance- 
Corporal, 4th Battalion Gordon High- 
landers ; son of Pat- 
rick Fowlie, farmer, 
Auchentumb, Strichen; 
born 9 July 1 888 ; edu- 
cated at Glasslaw and 
New Pitsligo Public 
Schools ; entered the 
University as a student 
in Agriculture, 1906. 
He took the University 
Diploma in Agricul- 
ture and the Nat. Di- 
ploma in Agriculture, 
1909, and the Nat. 
Diploma in Dairying, 1910. He was appointed 
Assistant-Lecturer in Agriculture for the Counties 
of Inverness, Ross and Cromarty in 1909, which 
post he held till September 191 2, when he was 
appointed County Organizer for Orkney. 

When war broke out Fowlie immediately 
asked the College to relieve him of his ap- 
pointment, and in September 19 14 he joined 
" U " Company of the 4th Gordons as a Private. 
After training at Ripon he crossed with the 





Battalion to France in February 191 5. On 
16 June the 4th Gordons were engaged in 
the severe and successful action on the Belle- 
warde Ridge, east of Ypres, and " D " Company 
distinguished itself by a bold assault on the 
German lines in a wood near Hooge. Fowlie 
was amongst those who fell — their bravery was 
described as "magnificent ". 

FORBES, JAMES CLAPPERTON : Pri- 
vate, 4th Battalion Gordon Highlanders ; 

son of AYilliam Forbes, 
M.B.E., Co why the, ex- 
Convener of the County 
of Banff; bornFordyce, 
23 February 1894 ; 
educated Fordyce Aca- 
demy ; student in Agri- 
culture, 1911-14. 

While in the Agri- 
cultural Department he 
was a member of " U " 
Company, and went on 
Military Service with 
the 4th Gordons at 
the outbreak of war. 
at the beginning of February 1915, and was 
killed at Hooge on 1 7 June in the same year. 

GORDON, ROBERT PATRICK: 
Private, 4th Battalion Gordon High- 
landers ; son of James 
A. Gordon, farmer ; 
born Kennethmont, 5 
August 1895. After 
an excellent school 
career he matricu- 
lated at the University 
in 1 91 2, and was a 
student in Arts till 
the outbreak of war. 

He joined the Uni- 
versity Company early 
in his course, and 
applied himself to his 
training with such zeal and interest that he soon 
gained the complete N.C.O.'s Proficiency 
Certificate. After mobilization and training in 
Bedford he arrived in France with his Battalion 
in February 191 5. He took part in the routine

trench warfare of Flanders during the spring of 
that year, and was killed in action in the brave 
assault on the German lines in a wood near 
Hooge on 17 June 1915. 

Gordon represented the best type of the 
shrewd, level-headed farming class of the' North- 
East of Scotland. He wanted education and he 
came up to the University that he might get it 
in the widest sense of the word. Over in France 
he displayed the same thoroughness and con- 
scientiousness, the same devotion to duty and 
to the matter in hand as he had done at home. 
He was only 19 when he died — his death has 
been aptly described as " the fall of the un- 
ripened fruit ". 

WHYTE, JAMES : Lance-Corporal, 4th 
Battalion Gordon Highlanders; 

son of James Whyte, 
crofter ; born Tarves, 
3 May 1894. After 
a highly successful 
school record at Tarves 
Public School, he 
matriculated as an 
Arts student in 
October 191 2, with 
a view to becoming 
a teacher. Concur- 
rently with his Uni- 
versity course he 
became a student at 
the Training Centre and took a very active part 
in the social side of the College, and in 191 3- 14 
was vice-president of its Debating Society. 

Enlisting in the University Company of the 
4th Gordons in June 191 3, he immediately 
entered into the spirit of the peace time train- 
ing, and in August 19 14 was mobilized with his 
unit. After a term of service at Bedford, where 
he became a Lance-Corporal, he went to France 
with the Battalion in February 19 15, sharing in 
the severe routine trench work of that Spring. 
He received a fatal wound during an attack in 
which his Battalion took part near Ypres, 18 
June 1915. 

DUNCAN, ALEXANDER DAVID: 

Lance-Sergeant, 4th Battalion Gordon 
Highlanders ; son of Alexander Duncan, 





farmer; born Ellon, 23 September 1893; edu- 
cated at Gordon's College, Aberdeen ; gradu- 
ated M.A., 1914. He 
was well known and 
highly esteemed among 
his fellow-students for 
his sterling character, 
his sound clear think- 
ing and his spirit of 
good comradeship. It 
is certain that by his 
death his prospective 
profession, the Ministry, 
lost one who would have 
carried on most worthily 
its best traditions. 

He joined the 4th Gordons in his school days, 
entering the newly formed school section of " E " 
Company, and later, after matriculating, he trans- 
ferred to the University Company. On the out- 
break of the war he was mobilized with his fellow- 
students and Territorials, and while under training 
at Bedford he became attached to the Machine 
Gun Section. On the Battalion's proceeding to 
France in February 191 5, he proved himself a 
very efficient and level-headed member of his 
section and was soon appointed a Lance-Sergeant. 
In the heavy fighting in which the Battalion took 
its full share on 17 June on the Menin Road 
near Ypres, Duncan was mortally wounded, and 
died a few days later at Wimereux, 25 June 1915. 

Mc WILLI AM, ALFRED DAWSON: 
Bombing Corporal, 1st Battalion Gordon 
Highlanders; son of 

James M c W i 1 1 i a m, 
farmer, Garbity, Orton, 
Morayshire ; born Bo- 
harm, Banffshire, 24 
April 1892. He re- 
ceived his early educa- 
tion at Keith Grammar 
School and matricu- 
lated in Agriculture in 
1908. He attended 
classes in the Univer- 
sity for two years and 
then returned home to 
assist his father in the management

of the 



IN ME MORI AM. 




In June 19 14 he received an appointment as 
manager of a famous Shorthorn herd in the 
Argentine, but returned home in November of 
that year to join the Gordons. He went over- 
seas in January and was killed at Hooge on 13 
July 1915. 

ALLARDYCE, ALEXANDER: Ser- 
geant, 4th Battalion Gordon Highlanders ; 

son of Rev. William Al- 
lardyce ; born Rothie- 
may, 2 2 November 
1884; graduated M. A., 
1904"; B.L. (Dist.), 
1907, being awarded 
the Edmond and 
Hunter prizes. He 
was a solicitor with 
Messrs. Hunter and 
Gordon, advocates, 
Aberdeen. 

As an undergradu- 
ate, he was a keen 
member of "U" Company, 1st V.B. Gordon 
Highlanders, and on mobilization at once rejoined 
his old Battalion, with which he went to France 
in February 1915. On 20 July he was killed 
in action at Hooge when leading a party of 
bombers. He was mentioned in dispatches, 
30 November 191 5. Socially Allardyce's was a 
most likeable personality ; his qualities as a 
debater gave promise that he would make his 
mark in his profession, and at the Front " his 
name was known for deeds of bravery ". 

CRUICKSHANK, JAMES: Corporal, 
3rd Battalion Gordon Highlanders; 

son of James Cruick- 
shank, merchant ; born 
Fyvie, 2 2 August 1896; 
educated at Inverurie 
Academy, where he 
carried off many prizes; 
entered the University 
(3rd Bursar in Arts), 
October 19 14. 

In April 19 15 he 
enlisted in the 3rd 
Battalion Gordon 
Highlanders, and pro- 





ceeded with his Battalion to Belgium in June. 
About a month later he died of wounds received 
in action near Ypres, 22 July 19 15.

THOMSON, JOHN MACLEAN: Sergeant, 
4th Battalion Gordon Highlanders; 

son of James G. Thom- 
s o n, cabinetmaker, 
Fochabers; born 
Fochabers, 2 Septem- 
ber 1889; graduated 
M.A. in 191 1. He 
was an excellent speci- 
men of what used to 
be a common type of 
Scottish student who, 
faced by serious ob- 
stacles, contrived to 
make their way to a 
University and pro- 
fessional education. He studied at Aberdeen 
U.F. College from 191 1 -14. 

At the outbreak of war he was in charge of 
a Mission in Canada. Thomson was one of 
the earliest and the most eager of the band of 
volunteers who abandoned their studies to take 
up military service. As a sergeant, he displayed 
qualities which would, had he been spared, 
undoubtedly have led to a brilliant military 
career. He fell a victim to a sniper's bullet in 
the trenches near Ypres on 22 July 1915. A 
student of no mean attainments, he was also 
an athlete and in ever)' sense a " sportsman " 
and a "good fellow". His enthusiasm found 
vent equally in Mission work in the slums of 
Aberdeen, on the football field, and in the 
trenches. 



KELLAS, ARTHUR: Major, R.A.M.C. ; 

son of James F. Kellas ; born Aberdeen, 1 
March 1883 ; educated Aberdeen Grammar 
School ; graduated M.B., 1906 ; D.P.H., 1907. 
He was doing valuable work as Senior Assistant 
at the Royal Asylum, Aberdeen, when war broke 
out. 

In 1 90 1 Kellas joined the R.A.M.C. (T.F.), 
and later the University Corps of the Scottish 
Horse. In 1909 he was commissioned in the 
R.A.M.C, and on the outbreak of war was mobi- 



IN ME MORI AM. 




lized as a Captain with the ist Highland Field 
Ambulance. At Bedford he proved a keen 
and efficient section 
commander, whose 
obvious fairness and 
justice earned the com- 
plete confidence and 
devotion of his men, 
in spite of the strict- 
ness of his discipline. 
The unit proceeded to 
Gallipoli as part of the 
29th Division, and in 
that strenuous and 
unique campaign he 
did gallant work in the 
forward area, until he was killed on the morning 
of the 6th August 1915, while making a final 
inspection before an impending battle at Cape 
Helles, which was to cover the opening moves 
of the Suvla Bay landing. Thus gallantly died 
an officer who had not only a fine reputation in 
his own unit, but also in a famous Division which 
had performed a feat unparalleled in history. 

Kellas was a man of great reserve and only 
his intimates could appreciate his high ideals, 
his keen sense of humour and his full enjoyment 
of life. He was a delightful companion, a keen 
observer with a great gift for detail and for logical 
analysis ; this was no doubt developed in the 
thorough training he went through for his pro- 
fessional work in Mental Science, to which 
branch of medicine his early death was an un- 
doubted loss. 

ROSE, FREDERICK ALEXAN- 
DER: 2nd Lieutenant, 4th Battalion 
Gordon Highland- 
ers ; son of Hugh 
Rose, builder ; born 
Huntly, 18 September 
1890 ; educated at the 
Gordon Schools, 
Huntly ; entered the 
University in 1907 as 
Second Bursar. He 
took a good place in all 
his classes ; and gradu- 
ated M.A., 191 1, with 
First Class Honours 




in English. For a year he acted as assistant 
in English and in 191 1 entered Christ Church, 
Oxford, winning the Douglas Jerrold Scholar- 
ship. While an undergraduate he gained the 
Charles Oldham University Scholarship by a 
paper on Shakespeare. He graduated at Ox- 
ford with First Class Honours in 191 3. He was 
immediately elected to a post-graduate Scholar- 
ship and was beginning to prepare a thesis on 
Fulke Greville, Lord Brooke, and an edition of 
his difficult poems, when the war broke out. 

Rose at once joined the Officers Training 
Corps and was soon gazetted to the 3rd Gordons. 
In the early Summer of 19 15 he was ordered to 
join the 4th Battalion in France, but had not 
been out many weeks when, the line being 
heavily shelled, he came out from the dug-out 
in which he was resting to steady and encourage 
his men, and was struck and killed by a bursting 
shell, 10 August 1 9 15. So died a very fine 
gentleman, modest, courageous, honourable and 
one who would, had he lived, have become 
a great scholar, for he had all the natural 
aptitudes and was training himself patiently in 
the fine discipline which alone can produce that 
rare thing the genuine scholar and critic. 

MOWAT, JAMES: Fleet-Surgeon, 
R.N. (retd.); Major, R.A.M.C. ; son of 

George Mowat ; born 
New Deer, 1 1 Novem- 
ber 1870 ; graduated 
M.B., 1 89 1 ; Surgeon, 
R.N., 1894; Staff-Sur- 
geon, 1902. After 20 
years service in the 
Royal Navy, Mowat 
retired in May 19 14, 
and took up private 
practice in Dovercourt, 
Essex. 

On 4 August 19 14 
he was called up for 

active service, and appointed P.M.O., H.M.S. 
" Hermes ". Whilst he was acting in this 
capacity the ship was torpedoed in the Straits of 
Dover, 31 October 19 14, and Mowat received 
the thanks of the Lords of the Admiralty for 
his good work on that occasion. In November 
1914 he was appointed to H.M.S. "Otway," 




11 



IN MEMORIAM. 



but, owing to shock consequent on the torpedo- 
ing of the "Hermes," he was invalided out 
of the Navy. When the Government issued 
an appeal because of the shortage of Doctors, 
Mowat at once responded. He joined the East 
Anglian C.C. Station, was gazetted Major, 
R.A.M.C., 7 May 1915, and was ordered to the 
Dardanelles. On his way to take his share in 
forming a Hospital at Mudros he lost his life in 
the sinking of the transport " King Edward," 
which went down in the /Egean Sea, 13 
August 1915. 

FOWLIE, ALEXANDER JOHN : Private, 
Australian Expeditionary Force ; son of 

John Fowlie, clerk of 
works ; born Aberdeen, 
1 October 1889 ; 
educated Fordyce 
Academy ; student in 
Arts and Agricultural 
Science; M.A., 191 1. 
Whilst studying to 
complete his B.Sc. 
(Agr.), he received a 
very good appointment 
in a rubber plantation 
in Galang Bazar, off 
Sumatra. Finding the 
German extraction of his superiors not to his 
liking, , he went to Christmas Island and after- 
wards to Australia, where he was farming when 
war broke out. 

Fowlie enlisted in the 13th Infantry Battalion 
Australian Expeditionary Force in January 191 5. 
After some months' training in Australia he 
sailed with his Battalion for Egypt, and in 
April 19 1 5 took his share in the landing at 
Gallipoli. He served there for some months, 
and was killed in action, 20 August 191 5. 

AUCHINACHIE, GEORGE CAMERON : 
Sergeant, 1st Battalion Gordon High- 
landers ; son of Provost Auchinachie, Aber- 
chirder ; born there, 16 June 1891 ; student in 
Medicine, 1910-13. 

At the outbreak of war Auchinachie was a 
Lance-Corporal in the 1st Gordon Highlanders, 
having enlisted as a Private in March 19 14. In 
October 1914, he went to France and only a 





fortnight later was wounded and invalided home. 
He returned to France in April 19 15, and was 
killed in action at St. 
Eloi, near Ypres, 23 
August 1915. 

His Company Officer 
wrote : " He was my 
platoon Sergeant and I 
cannot speak too highly 
of his soldierly quali- 
ties ". A friend who 
served with him writes 
thus : " The old quali- 
ties that made him 
friends in former days 
— his shrewdness and 

downrightness, his thoughtfulness for others, his 
forgetfulness of himself, his audacity and his 
incomparable courage and resource — all these 
made him invaluable in the battlefield and in 
the trenches ". 

JAMIESON, HERBERT MATHER: Sur- 
geon, R.N.V.R.; son of Peter Jamieson, Willow- 
bank, Aberdeen ; born 
Aberdeen, 25 March 
1883 ; educated at the 
Grammar School; 
graduated M.B., 1904. 
He was for a time in 
practice in England and 
served as Lieut. -Sur- 
geon in the Volunteer 
Forces in Newcastle- 
on-Tyne. Later he 
ment to sea as a Sur- 
geon in the Mercantile 
Marine. 

When war broke out, Jamieson's ship was 
taken over by the Admiralty for the transport 
of Australian troops to Gallipoli. He was 
wounded at the Dardanelles and invalided home. 
On recovery he rejoined his ship and died at 
sea, on Admiralty Service, 23 September 1915. 

DIETERLEN, ROBERT ALFRED : Cor- 
poral, 31 Bataillon de Chasseurs a pied, 
Army of France ; son of the Rev. Hermann 
Dieterlen of the French Mission, Hermon, 
Basutoland ; born there, 30 August 1885 ;

educated in France ; B.A., University of Nancy, 
1904; studied Divinity at Montauban Seminary, 
where he qualified for 
<wmm the ministry, and at 
Aberdeen University 
(Divinity, 1909-10) ; 
appointed by the Paris 
Evangelical Missionary 
Society to Barotseland, 
North Rhodesia. 

On the outbreak of 
war he immediately re- 
turned to France and 
joined his regiment, the 
nth Infantry. He was 
wounded in action but 
as soon as he recovered, requested to be sent 
back to the Front. He was promoted Corporal 
in the 31st Battalion of Sharpshooters, and on 
25 September 191 5 the Battalion attacked near 
Souchez. In the desperate fighting Dieterlen 
was last seen severely wounded. He was offici- 
ally reported " missing," and since the Armistice 
his death has been accepted. 

A devoted Christian, and a loyal Frenchman, 
he recognized at once the justice of the cause 
to which his country was suddenly called, and 
unhesitatingly put himself at her disposal. 
Having dedicated his life to the service of 
humanity, he found an equal duty and an 
equal glory in carrying the Gospel to the heathen, 
and in fighting enemies to those spiritual ideals 
which are essential to the progress of the race. 
In our University, of which he cherished grateful 
recollections, he is remembered for the purity 
and kindliness of his character, and for his 
keenness as a student. 



CALDER, GEORGE 
MACBETH: 2nd 
Lieutenant, Sea- 
forth Highlanders ; 

son of George M. Cal- 
d e r, inspector of poor, 
Edinkillie ; born Edin- 
killie, Morayshire, 29 
May 1 89 1. After an 
elementary education 
at Logie School, he 
attended Gordon's 




College, Aberdeen, where he distinguished 
himself both as a student and as an athlete. 
Entering the University in 1910, he not 
only completed an Arts course in which he 
showed special aptitude for languages, both 
Classical and Modern, but also studied Medicine, 
191 2-14. He was a well-known figure in the 
social life of the University, and his popularity 
is evidenced by the fact that each year of his 
University course he was elected a Member 
of the S.R.C. 

In 191 1 he joined "U" Company, 4th Gor- 
dons, and was shortly afterwards promoted to the 
rank of Sergeant. Mobilized at the outbreak of 
war, after training at Bedford, he proceeded over- 
seas with his regiment in February 191 5. In 
March 191 5 he was commissioned to the 8th Sea- 
forths, and embarked again for France in July 
1915. His death, on 25 September 1915 at the 
battle of Loos, cut short a life marked by rare 
ability and rich promise. 



DONALD, WILLIAM: Private, 4th 

Battalion Gordon Highlanders; son of John 

Donald, carpenter, 

Rothiemay ; born Mar- 

noch, Banffshire, 2 

July 1893 ; educated 

at Rothiemay Public 

School and Gordon's 

College, Aberdeen; 

student in Arts, 19 12- 

14. 

He joined the Gor- 
don Highlanders in 
191 1, and became a 
member of the Uni- 
versity Company of the 
4th Gordons just prior to the war. After doing 
the annual camp training, he was mobilized with 
his unit in August 19 14, volunteering at once 
for foreign service. In Bedford he was trained 
for active service and went to France with the 
Battalion in February 1915. He served effic- 
iently during that spring and summer while the 
Battalion were in Flanders, was twice wounded, 
and during the severe fighting in autumn 1915 
was killed in action at Loos between 25 and 29 
September 1915.

FRASER, IAN CATTO : 2nd Lieutenant, 
Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders; 

son of John T. Fraser, 
schoolmaster; born 
Petty East, Inverness- 
shire, 8 December 
1895 ; educated Gor- 
don's College ; student 
in Arts, 1913-14. 

He joined the Terri- 
torials in 1 9 1 2, and en- 
listed in the Gordon's 
College Company of 
the 1 /4th Gordons on 
the outbreak of war. 
After six months' 
training at Bedford he went to the Front as a 
Corporal ; commissioned on the field for distin- 
guished service, he was transferred to the 2nd 
Battalion Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, 
July 1915, and fought with them in the heavy 
fighting at Loos where he was killed, 25 Sep- 
tember 1915. Of Fraser it could be truly said 
that he lived his life in short measures, two 
sessions at the University, 6 months of training, 
7 months of active service, and he was only 19 
when he fell ; already he had shown that he had 
the rare gift of infectious enthusiasm, which in- 
spired others to do and dare along with him, 
alike in the playing field at King's and in the 
battle-fields of Flanders. 

KENNEDY, WILLIAM ROBERT: 2nd 

Lieutenant, 2nd Battalion Argyll and 
Sutherland H i g h- 
landers ; son of Dr. 

John R. Kennedy; 
born Carradale, Argyll- 
shire, 8 March 1896; 
educated Dunbeath 
Public School, Tain 
Royal Academy, and 
Wick High School ; 
student in Medicine, 
1914. 

Kennedy started 
Medicine in the 
summer session of 
1914 and enlisted at once in "U" Company, 
4th Gordon Highlanders. He was mobilized on 




4 August 1 9 14, immediately volunteering for 
foreign service, and left Bedford with the 
Battalion for France in February 191 5. Whilst 
there he displayed such conspicuous bravery in 
carrying dispatches across a shell-swept zone, 
that he was complimented by the Major-General 
commanding the third Division for his dis- 
tinguished conduct in the field, was recom- 
mended for the D.C.M., and singled out for 
promotion. After a course of training at St. 
Omer he was gazetted to the 2nd Argyll and 
Sutherland Highlanders in August 1915, and was 
serving with them when he was killed in action 
while leading his men to the assault at the Battle 
of Loos, 25 September 1915. 

Mcpherson, ian charles: 2nd 

Lieutenant, 2nd Battalion Gordon High- 
landers; son of 
Charles S. McPherson, 
LL.D., Rector, Banff 
Academy ; born Aber- 
lour, 15 December 
1893 ; educated at 
BanffAcademy (of 
which he was Dux in 
191 1) and Aberdeen 
University; M.A., 
1 9 14; student in Me- 
dicine, 19 1 2-14 ; Me- 
dallist in Physiology. 

He enlisted in the 
R.A.M.C., September 1914, was attached to the 
44th Field Ambulance, and trained at Aldershot 
till December. In January 1915 he received a 
commission in the S.R.O. and was attached to 
the 3rd Gordons. Proceeding to the French 
Front in May, he joined the 2nd Battalion 
and proved his efficiency as a bombing officer. 
On 25 September, when the Battalion charged 
from their trench before Vermelles, he gallantly 
led the bombers as far as Hulluch on the third 
German line, where he fell during the German 
counter-attack in the afternoon. 

He had exceptional ability as a student and 
was very popular. Beneath an easy manner 
" there was a sternness and enthusiasm only 
evident to his best friends, perhaps, and when 
he was confronted by a difficult and dangerous 
task. It was that sternness and enthusiasm 




14

which made him the hero he was." So con- 
spicuous was his braver)- in his last fight that 
they wrote of him : " If ever a soldier deserved 
the Victoria Cross, he did ; and had he lived he 
would have gained it. This is the opinion of 
his men and of the officers who saw him." 

MacPHERSON, JOHN COOK: 2nd Lieu- 
tenant, 3rd Battalion (attd. 1st Battalion) 
Gordon High- 
landers; son of 
Rev. R. Macpherson, 
D.D. ; born Elgin, 30 
January 1886; gradu- 
ated M.A. and LL.B., 
1 9 10; Hunter Medal 
in Roman Law ; Glad- 
stone Memorial Prize. 
At the outbreak of war 
he was in Edinburgh 
where he was engaged 
in the Solicitor's De- 
partment of the North 
British Railway Company. 

During his student days he was a Private in 
" U " Company, Gordon Highlanders and- in 
September 19 14, although his health had never 
been robust, he enlisted in the 9th Battalion 
Royal Scots and went to France with his regi- 
ment early in 19 15. Shortly afterwards he was 
commissioned to the nth Battalion and attached 
to the 3rd Battalion Gordon Highlanders. After 
further training he was attached to the 1st Bat- 
talion of the regiment and was serving with them 
in France when he was killed in action, leading 
the remnant of his Company at the third attempt 
to get through the wire entanglement during the 
severe fighting at Loos, 25 September 191 5. 

His personality was one of unusual charm, and 
his kindly and genial manner had gained for 
him a wide circle of friends. In literature and 
art he took a keen interest, and was Editor 
of "Alma Mater". A slightly dilettante atti- 
tude concealed to some extent his more solid 
characteristics, but the war swept aside what 
was never more than an attractive pose and 
brought out the true nature of the man. By 
his friends, Macpherson will be remembered as 
an example of the best type which the Scottish 
Universities produce. 




MACQUEEN, JOHN ELLISON : Lieuten- 
ant-Colonel, 6th Battalion Gordon High- 
landers ; eldest son of 
John Otto Macqueen, 
S.S.C., Aberdeen ; born 
Aberdeen, 3 June 1875. 
He was an alumnus of 
the University (1891- 
95) and became a 
member of the Society 
of Advocates in Aber- 
deen in 1900 and was 
in partnership with his 
father and afterwards 
with Mr. H. J. Find- 
later, W.S. In 1896 

he was commissioned to the 1st V.B. Gordon 
Highlanders and retired as Major in 1910. 

On 25 September 19 14 he was gazetted 
Lieut.-Colonel to command the 2/4th Battalion 
Gordon Highlanders (T.F.) which was then 
being raised, and for some months he was 
engaged in recruiting in Aberdeen and train- 
ing at various Home stations that unit which 
he brought to a high standard of efficiency. 
His ambition was to lead the Battalion in 
action, but the general military situation pre- 
vented this, and in the summer of 19 15 he was 
appointed to command the 6th Battalion Gordon 
Highlanders in the field, in succession to Lieut.- 
Colonel McLean who had fallen at Neuve Cha- 
pelle. This was a high honour for a Territorial 
officer who had not been overseas, and a notable 
tribute to his military capacity. He went to 
a unit which had already won a great repu- 
tation in France and was to enhance this in 
many subsequent actions. In the battle of 
Loos on 25 September 19 15, he was killed while 
leading the assault on Hulluch in which the 
Battalion suffered very heavy casualties. He 
was mentioned in Field-Marshal French's dis- 
patch of 1 January 19 16. 

MASON, JOHN HAMPTON STRACHAN : 

Private, 4th Battalion Gordon Highland- 
ers ; son of John Mason, painter ; born Aber- 
deen, 17 December 1891 ; educated Robert 
Gordon's College ; entered the University in 
1909; graduated M.A. (Hons. Eng.), 1913, and 
in the same year secured an important literary 



r 5

appointment in London. As an undergraduate 
he took a leading part in the life of the Uni- 
versity, being editor of 
"Alma Mater" (191 1- 
12), and later president 
of the Literary Society. 
Mason was among 
the first volunteers for 
active service, and was 
a Private in "D" 
Company, 4th Gordons. 
After training in Eng- 
land he crossed to 
France with the i/ath 
Gordon Highlanders in 
1 9 1 5, and was killed in 
action 25 September 1915, in one of those 
"breathless episodes" in the fierce fighting near 
Loos. Jack Mason was a man with many ac- 
complishments, of wide and varied interests, and 
of cultivated and fastidious tastes. He pos- 
sessed a freshness of thought and a rare 
originality of mind, although a certain light- 
hearted extravagance and exuberance of speech 
often concealed a coolness and soundness of 
judgment and a strength of character which his 
seniors envied. But he will be remembered by 
most for his charm of manner, his unfailing gift 
of humour and his ready sympathy with all 
classes of men, which attracted and kept together 
round him a wide circle of friends of the most 
divergent interests. 

MURRAY, MURDO MORRISON : Private, 

5th Battalion Cameron Highlanders 

(Lochiel's) ; son of 

Donald Murray, Cul- 
drain, Sutherland; 
born Rogart, 26 May 
1886 ; educated Rogart 
Public School and later 
at Robert Gordon's 
College, which he en- 
tered as a bursar ; 
matriculated Aberdeen 
University 1905 ; 
graduated M. A., 1908; 
he subsequently ob- 
tained a good appoint- 
ment as Assistant Teacher at Leith. In pre-war 




days he was a noted athlete, and a well-known 
figure and competitor at all the Highland gather- 
ings.^ 

When the war broke out Murray was one of 
those who early answered the call of their 
country. On 5 September 19 14 he joined the 
5th Cameron Highlanders (Lochiel's Camerons), 
and after training in England he went with the 
regiment to France. He and his brother went 
"over the top" on that terrible day at the 
battle of Loos, 25 September 1915 ; he was 
posted as "missing" and later on as "presumed 
killed ". 

SCOTT, JAMES: Lieutenant. 
6th Battalion Gordon Highlanders ; 

son of James Scott, 
farmer, Tarry croys, 
Keith ; born there, 16 
December 1890 ; edu- 
cated Keith Grammar 
School where he was 
medallist in Science. 
He graduated M.A., 
1 9 1 3, and was a teacher 
in Mortlach Higher 
Grade School until the 
date of his enlistment. 
It was Scott's intention 
to return to the Uni- 
versity and take up the study of Medicine. 

In December 1914 he enlisted in the 6th 
Gordon Highlanders and in March 1915 was 
commissioned, and proceeded to France with 
the Battalion. He was reported " missing " 
between 25 and 27 September 1915 and 
was later presumed killed in action. On 1 
January 19 16, Scott was mentioned in the 
" Gazette " for gallant and distinguished service 
in the Field. 

SMITH, GEORGE BUCHANAN: 2nd 
Lieutenant, Gordon Highlanders ; eldest 
son of Principal the Very Rev. Sir George Adam 
Smith ; born Aberdeen, 18 October 1890 ; edu- 
cated Glasgow Academy ; Glasgow, Aberdeen, 
Edinburgh Universities; M.A. (Glas.), 191 2; 
LL.B. (Aberd.), 1914; Sergeant O.T.C. 

Commissioned S.R.O, 4 August 1914; at- 
tached 3rd Gordons, Stoneywood Wireless Sta-

tion, till he conducted a draft for the ist Bat- 
talion to Kemmel. On 14 December he led two 
platoons against the 
German lines, and hav- 
ing lain all day under 
fire, severely wounded, 
brought back the sur- 
vivors, his CO. testi- 
fying : " Your gallant 
conduct in the field 
has been reported to 
me, and I have had 
much pleasure in bring- 
ing it to the notice of 
higher authority''. 
After three months in 
hospital and on garrison duty till 8 August 191 5, 
h£ joined the 2 nd Gordons, engaged in manoeuvres 
and trench-construction, and was promoted se- 
cond officer of " A " Company on the fighting 
line. After a night of cutting wire before " The 
Silesian Sap " he led the guiding platoon of the 
regiment against the German position between 
Vermelles and Hulluch and there fell 25 Septem- 
ber 1915. His capability as an officer is shown 
by the fact that " he had so instructed his N.C.O.'s 
that they were able to carry out orders and made 
good even after their officer fell ". One of many 
tributes paid to him by his fellow-officers states : 
" He knew no fear. His dauntless cheerfulness, 
bright wit and integrity of purpose were com- 
bined with most genuine unselfishness." 

STEPHEN, FREDERICK CHARLES: 

Lieutenant, 6th Battalion Gordon High- 
landers; son of John 
Stephen, farmer; born 
Fordyce, 4 December 
1886 ; educated For- 
dyce Academy ; en- 
tered Aberdeen Uni- 
versity as seventh 
Bursar; graduated 
M.A. (I Math.), 1909 ; 
Simpson Mathematical 
Prize, Greig Prize in 
Natural Philosophy, 
and David Rennet 
Gold Medal. In Octo- 
ber 1909 he went up to Emmanuel College, 




Cambridge, and in June 19 10 was elected to a 
College Scholarship, holding at the same time 
both the Fullerton and Ferguson Scholarships 
in Mathematics. He left Cambridge with a First 
Class in both parts of the Mathematical Tripos, 
joined the staff of Merchant Taylor's School, and 
was doing very successful work in preparing boys 
for Sandhurst and the Universities. 

In August 19 14 he enlisted in the 4th Battalion 
Gordon Highlanders, and soon afterwards went to 
the Front with a commission in the 6th Gordons. 
To his work as an officer he brought the same 
honourable and conscientious spirit as had 
marked his student days, and the splendid 
strength and skill of body which had made him 
an athlete of whom his College was proud. 
When he fell at Loos on 25 September 19 15, 
as a Lieutenant of bomb-throwers, his Battalion 
lost a good officer and his University a distin- 
guished son. Quiet and modest, liked and re- 
spected by every one, it was only to his intimate 
friends that he was really known in the bright- 
ness and charm of which he was capable ; and 
it was only such friends who could realize and 
appreciate the greatness of their loss. 

STUART, JAMES MATTHEWSON : Pri- 
vate, 6th Battalion Gordon Highlanders; 

son of Donald Stuart, 
painter ; born Macduff, 
7 December 1894; 
educated Banff Aca- 
demy ; student in Arts, 
1913-14. 

On 15 September 
1 9 14 Stuart enlisted in 
the 6th Gordons and, 
after training at Bed- 
ford, went to France 
in November. He was 
wounded and invalided 
home in February 

1915, but rejoined the Battalion in time to take 
part in the attack of 25 September 1915 when 
he fell in action. 

At the time of his death Stuart was acting as 
field messenger during the advance, and in this 
responsible and dangerous post he showed himself 
not only fearless and daring but full of cool steadi- 
ness and determination. It was the same in every-

thing — in his work, on the football field, on the 
battle-field, Stuart was one to be relied on always. 

WATSON, JOHN DOUGLAS : Machine 

Gun Sergeant, 9th Battalion Gordon 

Highlanders; son 

of Rev. John Watson ; 
born Banchory- 
Devenick, 3 October 
1885 ; educated Kelso 
High School from 
which he passed as 
Dux to Edinburgh 
University in 1904. 
During the summer 
session of 1906 he 
attended Arts classes 
at Aberdeen Univer- 
sity. He graduated 
M.A. (Edin.), 1908; LL.B. (Edin.), 1910; and 
was admitted W.S., 1913. In 19 14 he was 
assumed partner in the legal firm of Messrs. 
Laing & Steedman, Selkirk. 

In August 1 9 14 he hastened to Aberdeen to 
join Kitchener's Army as a Private, and was at 
once promoted platoon Sergeant of a platoon of 
miners. He became so greatly attached to this 
platoon that he refused a commission. Later he 
was appointed Battalion Machine Gun Sergeant, 
and proceeded to France with the Battalion in 
June 1 91 5. At Loos on 25 September 191 5, after 
being twice wounded, he was last seen serving 
his gun in the face of the advancing enemy. He 
is missing and presumed killed on that date. 

ALEXANDER, WILLIAM DUNCAN ': Pri- 
vate, 4th Battalion Gordon Highlanders; 

son of William Alex- 
ander, builder ; born 
Banff, 6 December 
1892 ; entered the 
University, 1 9 1 2 ; 
student in Medicine, 
1912-14. 

He enlisted in the 
4th Gordon High- 
landers, 12 December 
1 9 14. After nine 
months in Scotland 
and England he 
crossed to France on 





15 August 1915, and took part with his Battalion 
in the " heroic charge " on the German posi- 
tions at Hooge on that eventful 25 September 
191 5. He was reported " missing " on that date, 
and later presumed killed. 

EWEN, JOHN BIRNIE : Private, 4th Bat- 
talion Gordon Highlanders ; son of James 
Ewen, nurseryman ; 
born Aberdeen, 2 1 
February 1893 ; edu- 
cated Robert Gordon's 
College ; matriculated 
in Arts, 19 10, entering 
the University as 13th 
Bursar; graduated 
M.A., 1914, with 
Second Class Honours 
in Classics. He re- 
presented the Univer- 
sity in Association foot- 
ball and in tennis, 
being awarded his "full-blue " in the latter. 

In October 19 14, after a previous medical re- 
jection, he joined the 2 /4th Battalion Gordon 
Highlanders and trained with them in Aberdeen 
until March 1915, when he had the hard ex- 
perience of being drafted straight from his own 
home to the Battalion in France. It was his 
strong sense of duty that took him to France, 
for he had just gained in open competition a 
post under the National Health Insurance Com- 
mission and only with much difficulty was he 
allowed to continue on service. He remained 
with the 2/4th Gordons until his death on that 
black 25 September 191 5 when the Battalion 
gained such costly distinction at Hooge. 
Though modest and self-effacing in disposition, 
Ewen had a strong trait of sympathy and help- 
fulness that is gratefully remembered by many. 

FINDLATER, ALEXANDER : Lance- 
Corporal, 4th Battalion Gordon High- 
landers ; son of Alexander Findlater, mason ; 
born Edinburgh, 1 April 1896 ; educated at 
Fordyce Academy, where he gained five medals 
in his final year; entered the University in 19 13, 
and carried off the 1st prize in Latin, and 5th in 
Greek during his first session. 

Then the war came, the fighting blood in 



IN MEMORIAM. 




young Findlater was stirred, and he promptly en- 
listed in "U " Company, 
4th Gordon Highland- 
ers. After 7 months' 
training at Bedford he 
went with his Battalion 
to Flanders, and is un- 
derstood to have met 
his death in one of 
those "breathless epi- 
sodes " near Hooge, 
25 September 1915, 
thus carrying on the 
family tradition, for he 
was a nephew of Piper 

Findlater, V.C., of Dargai fame. 

FORBES, JOHN KEITH: Sniper- 
Sergeant, 4th Battalion Gordon High- 
landers; son of Alex- 
ander Forbes, teacher, 
Aberdeen ; born Aber- 
deen, 12 April 1883 ; 
graduated M. A., 1905 ; 
taught for seven years 
in Rathven Public 
School ; in 1 91 2 en- 
tered Aberdeen U.F. 
College, taking the 
highest place in the 
examinations open to 
all the U.F. Colleges ; 
gained Foote Scholar- 
ship in Hebrew and Eadie Prize in New Testa- 
ment Greek. 

He enlisted in October 19 14 as a Private in 
the 4th Gordon Highlanders ; and was sent to 
Belgium in February 1915. Although he could 
readily have obtained a commission, he con- 
tented himself with the rank of Sergeant, be- 
lieving that as a N.C.O. he would be able to 
exercise a greater moral influence on his men. 
The invaluable services he rendered by organiz- 
ing a corps of snipers, as well as by the accurate 
information he was able to gain regarding the 
German positions, were recognized in a letter 
addressed to him by the General commanding 
the Division. He fell at Hooge on 25 Septem- 
ber 1915. 

A more versatile genius than Forbes never 




passed through Aberdeen U.F. College. A 
tireless walker, an intrepid mountaineer, a 
keen sportsman, a humorist, a skilled musician, 
a linguist, a scholar — no achievement seemed 
beyond his capacity. Even in the trenches he 
pursued his studies, and left behind him singu- 
larly able notes on the Book of Job, which to 
the last he studied in the Hebrew original, with 
the aid of the latest German commentary. 
Those who had the privilege of knowing him 
will never forget this distinguished student and 
Sniper-Sergeant, who was as modest and lovable 
as he was gifted. 

HAIG, WILLIAM STEPHEN : Corporal, 
4th Battalion Gordon Highlanders ; son 

of W i 1 1 i a m H a i g , 
permanent way in- 
spector ; born Lonmay, 
6 November 1892 ; 
educated at Gordon's 
College, Aberdeen ; 
matriculated in Arts in 
191 1 ; graduated M.A. 
in 1 9 14. 

He was a member 
of the original Robert 
Gordon's College sec- 
tion of the 4th 
Gordons, enlisting in 

1 9 10, and on entering the University he trans- 
ferred to " U " Company. After being trained 
from August 19 14 to February 191 5 at Bed- 
ford, he went abroad with his unit. He served 
with his Battalion till 25 September 191 5 when 
he was reported missing, and later was presumed 
killed on that date at Hooge, where the 4th 
Gordons covered themselves with glory. 

HENDERSON, ALEXANDER RENNIE : 
Lieutenant, 4th Battalion Gordon 
Highlanders ; son of Alexander R. Henderson, 
teacher; born Aberdeen, 8 November 1888; 
educated Robert Gordon's College ; graduated 
M. A., 1 9 1 1 . After graduation he was appointed 
a teacher at Aboyne Higher Grade School.

outbreak of war, and in September 19 14 
gazetted to the 4th Gordons with whom he 
went to France in Feb- 
ruary 19 1 5. He led 
his platoon into action 
at Hooge on 25 Sep- 
tember 1915 and had 
reached the third line 
of German trenches 
when he was wounded. 
He was later reported 
wounded and missing 
on that date. His 
Commanding Officer 
wrote: "The courage 
andpluck shown byhim 
and his men that day are beyond words of mine." 

INKSTER, WALTER: 2nd Lieutenant, 

4th Battalion Gordon Highlanders ; son of 

James Inkster, ship- 
master ; born Aber- 
deen, 27 February 
1890; educated Ash- 
ley Road School and 
Aberdeen G r a m m a r 
School. In 1908 he 
went to the University 
with a good record 
both in work and ath- 
letics, graduated M.A., 
191 1 ; and after taking 
his B.Sc. in Agricul- 
ture, 191 2, went to 
work for the Potash Syndicate in Germany. 
In December 191 3 a good appointment in 
Australia was offered to him, and the outbreak 
of war found him beginning his career there. 

By 8 March 191 5 he was back in Scotland 
and a Private in the 4th Gordons ; in April he 
received a commission in the same Battalion ; 
and in May crossed to France. A few months 
later he came home on leave, and a week after 
rejoining his Battalion, he fell at Hooge, in the 
terrible days of fighting of September 19 15. At 
first reported "wounded and missing," there was 
little doubt that he had died of wounds received 
in action on or about the 25 th of the month. 
Full of spirit and gaiety, cheerfully ready for 
any contingency and any adventure, with a 





humour as quick of expression in the art of 
caricature as in speech, courageous and lovable, 
he was a friend whose place can never be filled to 
the many who cared for and counted upon him. 

LOW, GEORGE: 2nd Lieutenant, 
4th Battalion Gordon Highlanders ; 

son of William Low, 
baker; born Dyce, 20

University in 191 o as 
nth Bursar; gradu- 
ated M.A. in I9i4,with 
First Class Honours in 
Classics, gaining the 
Dr. Black Prize in 
Latin. "A student of 
sterling capacity and 
character" is his Pro- 
fessor's testimony. 

At the outbreak of war he was a Sergeant in 
" U " Company, 4th Battalion Gordon High- 
landers, and did much valuable work at Bedford 
as musketry instructor. Crossing to France with 
the Battalion in March 1915, he was shortly 
afterwards promoted Company Sergeant Major. 
In August 1915 he received his commission and 
came home on short leave. He was recalled to 
take part in the attack at Hooge, 25 September 
191 5, from which he did not return. He was 
last seen surrounded by the enemy, but fighting 
with the utmost determination. Few were more 
regretted, for his kindly good-nature com- 
mended him to all.

IN MEM OR! AM. 



In April before joining the Army he passed 
the M.A. examination in Classics and Eng- 
lish. 

He ioined the 4th Gordon Highlanders in 
April 1915, and after 5 months' training went 
out to France on 1 September ; he was reported 
missing and then killed in action at Hooge, 
on 25 September 1915, after being only three 
weeks at the Front. 

SANGSTER, WILLIAM JOHN CAMP- 
BELL: 2nd Lieutenant, 4th Battalion Gor- 
don Highlanders ; 

son of William Sang- 
ster, draper ; born 
Aberdeen, 1 January 
1896; educated at 
Aberdeen Grammar 
School ; Christ's Col- 
lege, Blackheath, and 
Aberdeen University ; 
graduated M.A., 19 14, 
and was studying for a 
medical career. 

He had belonged to 
the University O.T.C. 
and when war broke out he immediately joined 
the Army, receiving his commission as 2nd 
Lieutenant in the 4th Gordon Highlanders, 
3 October 19 14. After training at Aberdeen, 
Bedford, etc., he crossed to France 24 June 
19 1 5. In the' ensuing three months, he proved 
himself the type of officer who is beloved and 
trusted by his men. On the fateful 25 Septem- 
ber 1915 Sangster fell. He was detailed with a 
platoon to capture a portion of German trenches, 
which he did successfully. With great courage 
he and his men held on to the position, later 
it was re-captured by the Germans, the fighting 
was fierce, and the traditions of the Gordons 
were upheld. 

SAUNDERS, GEORGE KEMP : Private, 
4th Battalion Gordon Highlanders ; 

son of Rev. Alexander R. Saunders ; born 
Shansi, North China, 19 November 1894; 
student in Medicine, 19 13-14. 

Having joined " U " Company, as a Private, 
in the spring of 19 14, Saunders was called up 





on the outbreak of war, receiving a bonus 
for being the first of 
his Company to report 
after the issue of mobi- 
lization orders. After 
training at Bedford for 
six months he crossed 
to France with the Bat- 
talion at the end of 
February, and served 
with them until 25 
September 191 5. He 
was reported first 
" missing " and later 
"killed" at Hooge on 
that date. 

SHANKS, JOHN WILLIAM: Private, 
4th Battalion Gordon Highlanders ; 

son of John Shanks, 
inspector of collectors ; 
born Aberdeen, 4 June 
1893. He matricu- 
lated as a student in 
Arts in 191 2, coming 
to the University with 
a reputation as an Eng- 
lish scholar which he 
subsequently main- 
tained. He made a 
name for himself 
among his fellow- 
students by his contri- 
butions to "Alma Mater" — his clear vivid prose, 
and verse of much real merit, being always re- 
cognizable. 

Shanks joined " U " Company, 4th Gordon 
Highlanders in March 1914, was called up in 
August, and, after training in Bedford, crossed 
with the Battalion to France in February 191 5. 
He was reported missing at Hooge and was 
afterwards presumed killed on 25 September 

I 9 I 5- 

Beauty in any form, in nature, in literature, 

in music, was to Shanks the thing that counted 
most in life, and it needed a character of much- 
strength to turn from the study he loved to the 
life of the trenches, and to enter into the spirit 
of that life, the spirit of humour and true com- 
radeship which alone made it livable.

SILVER, ALEXANDER: Private, 
4th Battalion Gordon Highlanders; 

son of Alexander 
Silver; born Harvieston 
Farm, Kinneff, 14 Sep- 
tember 1894; edu- 
cated Gordon's 
College ; entered Aber- 
deen University to 
study Agriculture in 
1912. 

At the outbreak of 
war he went with " U " 
Company to Bedford 
where he became a 
great favourite not only 
with his fellow-students but throughout the Battal- 
ion. Cooking for a company was no " catch " in 
those days, but " Sandy " cheerfully accepted the 
job with all the drudgery it entailed. In this 
capacity he left with the Battalion for France in 
February 19 15. It did not take long under 
active service conditions to show that there was 
the real fighting stuff in Silver. After repeated 
attempts he got relieved of the job which afforded 
him comparative safety. Alongside his old 
fellow-students in the trenches, he was supremely 
happy. Hardships seemed less real when Silver 
shared them. He took part with the company 
in the attack from Sanctuary Wood (Hooge) on 
25 September 19 15 and was subsequently posted 
as missing. 

ADAMS, JAMES HUME: Private, 
6th Battalion Cameron Highlanders ; 

son of John Adams, 
compositor; born 
Edinburgh, 6 March 
1890; M.A. (I Mod. 
Lang.), Glasgow; 
student in Law, Aber- 
deen, 1913-15. 

Adams joined the 
6th Cameron High- 
landers in March 1 9 1 5 , 
was trained at Basing- 
stoke, and then crossed 
to France. After only a 
few months' service, he 
fell in action at Loos on 26 September 1915. 





ANDERSON, JAMES: Private, 4th Bat- 
talion Gordon Highlanders; son of John- 
Anderson, fisherman ; 
born Portnockie, 29 
April 1892 ; educated 
,at Portnockie Public 
School and Fordyce \ 
Academy ; student in 
Arts, 1911-14. 

During his 3rd year 
at the University he 
enlisted in the former 
"U" Company, i/4th 
Gordon Highlanders, 
and at the Front was a 
member of the Snipers' 
Section. In June 1915 his CO. reported that 
he had distinguished himself in the Field. He 
was among the missing after the action at Hooge, 
25 September 1915. Subsequently it was re- 
ported that he had died on 26 September 
19 1 5 as a prisoner of war at Giessen, Ger- 
many, from wounds received the previous day. 
Those who knew him in the Snipers' Section 
found him a sterling comrade, full of humour, 
cool and daring in the face of danger. 

TAWSE, BERTRAM WILKIE: Sergeant, 
4th Battalion Cameron Highlanders ; 

son of Peter Tawse, 
contractor ; born Aber- 
deen, 14 September 
1884; educated 
Gordon's College ; en- 
tered the University, 
1 90 1 ; graduated M.A. 
(II Math.), 1905; 
B.Sc, 1906. After 
graduation he opened 
a Civil Service and 
Business College in 
Inverness, and this 
venture was proving it- 
self a conspicuous success when war broke 
out. 

During his University career Tawse was a 
member of " U " Company. In August 19 14 he 
enlisted in the 4th Camerons and went to France 
with the Battalion, rising to the rank of Sergeant 
and doing excellent work as a N.C.O. He 




22 



IN MEMORIAM. 



fell in action at the Quarries, Hulluch, on 26 
September 19 15. 

Of a retiring disposition, Tawse never, either 
at the University or in the Army, took the place 
to which his undoubted ability as scholar, teacher 
and soldier entitled him. The greater self-con- 
fidence which time would have given him was all 
that was needed to bring him to a foremost place 
in his profession. 

MILNE, FREDERICK WILLIAM: Pri- 
vate, 4th Battalion Gordon Highlanders ; 

son of George Milne, 
farmer ; born Fyvie, 1 
September 1896 ; edu- 
cated Fyvie and Gor- 
do n ' s College, Aber- 
deen; student in 
Medicine, 19 14-15. 

Milne joined the 4th 
Gordons as a Private 
in November 1914, 
and went with them to 
France in the spring of 
1915. After coming 
safely through the 
fighting on that fatal 25 September, he fell in 
action at Ffooge on 2 October 1915. 

MUNRO, GORDON DEAN: Private, 
4th Battalion Gordon Highlanders; 

son of James M. 




Munro, M.B., Tarves ; 
born there, 3 April 
1895 ; educated Tarves 
Parish and Aberdeen 
Grammar Schools; 
matriculated in Medi- 
cine 19 1 3, passed the 
First Professional, July 
1914. 

Having joined the 
Grammar School Com- 
pany of the 4th Gor- 
dons in June 191 3, on 
the outbreak of war he was mobilized with his regi- 
ment, and after training at Bedford and elsewhere 
crossed with them to France in February 191 5. 
To the end he remained in the ranks, declining 
a commission. He was reported the best shot 







in his Company, and at the Front was chosen 
to act as sniper. On 25 September 191 5, when 
the Battalion swept on in its memorable charge 
through the German lines at Hooge he was 
severely wounded and taken prisoner. Re- 
moved to a hospital in Courtrai, he died there 
in the hands of the enemy on 2 October 191 5. 

The friends of his boyhood at Tarves, his 
fellow-students and his comrades in arms have 
united in testifying to his athletic achievements, 
his bright and very unselfish personality, his 
loyalty in friendship and his power of cheer. 
He was a very gallant soldier who shrank from 
no sacrifice. 

MARR, ALEXANDER DAVID : Sergeant, 
7th Battalion Gordon Highlanders; 

son of Alexander D. 
M a r r, dyker ; born 
Banchory-Devenick, 2

graduated M.A. (Hons. 
Maths.), 1 9 14. He 
took first place in the 
examination for the 
Neil Arnott Prize in 
Experimental Physics 
and intended taking 
his B.Sc. In Univer- 
sity circles he was well 
known as an athlete 

and an enthusiastic Territorial. His sympathetic 
nature and sincere character made him many- 
friends by whom he is affectionately remem- 
bered. 

Being a Territorial, Marr was called up on 
4 August 1 9 14 as a Corporal in the 7 th Gordons, 
and went with the Battalion to Bedford and 
later to France. He had served in France for 
only five months when he was killed in action 
at Thiepval on 13 October 191 5. 

GARBUTT, JAMES RESTON GAR-

son of William Garbutt, banker ; born Portsoy,

College, Aberdeen; graduated M.B., 191 1. 
After graduation, with a view to specializing, 
he worked in a Sheffield hospital until war 
broke out.

IN MEMORIAM. 




In December 19 14 Garbutt received a com- 
mission in the 
R.A.M.C, and served 
for a few months at 
Preston and St. Omer 
Military Hospitals. 
He wished, however, 
to get to the fighting 
line and became at- 
tached to the King's 
Own Scottish Border- 
ers. Only ten days 
after joining the regi- 
ment, on 1 December 
1 9 1 5, he was killed by 
a shell while on duty.

Moody ; born D u ni- 
fties, 5 April 1873 ; | 
graduated M.B., 1900 ; 
M.D., 1902. After 
graduation Moody 
acted as House Surgeon 
a t Peterborough In- 
firmary, then as Anses- 
t h e t i s t and Second 
House Surgeon at Ad- 
denbrooke's Hospital, 
Cambridge, and later 
was for some time a 

Medical Officer on board P. & O. liners. He

to the " British Medical Journal," and the 
" Lancet ". 

Coming of a fighting ancestry — his great- 
grandfather fought at Lisbon and Coruna under 
Sir John Moore — Moody offered himself for 
service at the beginning of the war. He acted 
as Surgeon at Haslar Naval Hospital until Sep- 
tember 1 91 5, when he was commissioned in 
the R.N. and posted to H.M. Cruiser "Natal".

SMITH, WILLIAM GEORGE RAE: Lieu- 
tenant, King's Own Yorkshire Light In- 
fantry ; son of Charles 
Smith, merchant, Aber- 
deen ; born Aberdeen, 
5 July 1889; educated at 
the Grammar School ; 
student in Agriculture, 
1904-05, and 1908-09, 
Between these years he 
was for some time in 
New Zealand sheep 
farming, and while still 
very young did some 
exploring and trading in 
New Guinea and the 
South Sea Islands. Later he led a small ex- 
pedition through Patagonia, his report on this 
journey was published in the Magazine of the 
Royal Scottish Geographical -Society. After his 
second period as a student in Agriculture he 
carried on stock farming in Rhodesia. He was 
an enthusiastic member of the Legion of Fron- 
tiersmen, of which he acted for a time as Com- 
mandant for Scotland, and raised companies in 
Aberdeen and Edinburgh. 

On the outbreak of war he hurried home from 
Rhodesia and was in rapid succession a member 
of a New Zealand Corps, an ambulance driver 
on the Belgian Front, and a horse artilleryman. 
In February 19 15 he obtained a commission in 
the King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry with 
which, and the 21st Divisonal Cyclists, he served 
till his adventurous and crowded life was ended 
on 26 January 19 16 while he was carrying back 
a wounded comrade after a bombing raid. For 
his conduct on this occasion he was mentioned 
in dispatches. He might have been on leave at 
the time he was killed but wrote home, "What's 
the good of leave if you haven't done something 
worth while ? " So he sought honour in another 
gallant adventure and met death. 

DEWAR GEORGE: Lieutenant, R. A.M. C.; 

son of David Dewar, draper ; born Peterculter, 
4 January 1893 ; educated at Gordon's College, 
Aberdeen ; and at the University where he 
graduated M.B. (with distinction), in 191 5, 
distinguishing himself alike in his classes, and 
on the playing fields. Throughout his Uni- 




versity career he was conspicuous in the 
rugby team and in the cricket eleven but 
remained untouched 
by his more than or- 
dinary popularity and 
was genuinely beloved 
by a wide circle of 
friends. 

On the outbreak of 
war he was mobilized 
as a private in the 
R.A.M.C, but in Oc- 
tober 1 9 14 returned to 
Aberdeen to complete 
his medical studies. 
After his graduation 

he rejoined as a Lieutenant in the same corps 
and proceeded in November 1915 to France, 
where he was killed by a shell on 3 February 
1 91 6. Short though his period of service in 
France was, he had already won the affectionate 
regard of the officers and men with whom he 
was associated, while his friends at home and 
abroad felt it hard that he, who had exulted so 
openly in the joyousness of life and had ex- 
emplified so attractively the vigour of youth, 
should die so young. 

BROWN, RICHARD GAVIN : Lieutenant, 
R.A.M.C. ; son of Richard Gavin Brown, Deputy 
Inspector General, R.N. 
(retd.) ; born Stoke, 
Devon, 8 April 1882. 
He entered the Uni- 
versity in 1898, gradu- 
ated M.B. , 1903. After 
holding appointments 
at Lambeth and Tyne- 
mouth, he settled in 
private practice at 
Portsmouth, where he 
was appointed an Anaes- 
thetist at the Royal 
Hospital. 

On the outbreak of war Brown volunteered 
and, in August 19 14, was appointed a Civil Sur- 
geon at the Alexandra Hospital, Cosham. In 
March 191 5 he obtained a commission in the 
R.A.M.C, and at the beginning of July was sent 
to Gallipoli with the 14th CCS. attached to the 




25 



IN MEMORIAM. 



nth Division. He took part in the landing at 
Suvla Bay on 6 August and in the engagements 
which followed he attended the wounded for 44 
consecutive hours, under continuous shelling 
from the Turkish batteries. After three months 
excellent work at Suvla, Brown was invalided 
home with dysentery and died in the 5 th Southern 
General Hospital, Portsmouth, 14 February 1916. 
Brown freely and ungrudgingly gave up a 
career which already had been crowned with 
success, and his many friends will endorse what 
has been said of him by one who knew him from 
boyhood's days — " Possessed of attainments of 
a high order, socially and professionally, it was 
little wonder that his short career was so emi- 
nently successful ". 

AIARR, CHARLES SPENCE : Private, 50th 
Battalion Canadian Expeditionary Force ; 

son of Charles Marr, 
blacksmith, Ellon; born 
Cruden, 20 July 1887 ; 
he was educated at 
Ellon Public School 
and Robert Gordon's 
College ; he matricu- 
lated at Aberdeen Uni- 
versity in 1905 and 
graduated M.A., 19 10. 
Thereafter he was en- 
gaged in teaching in 
Neweastle-on-Tyne be- 
fore emigrating to 

Canada, and was teaching in Regina when war 

broke out. 

Marr immediately enlisted in the Canadian 

Expeditionary Force, and arrived in England in 

191 5. Before being ordered to the Front he died 
suddenly at BramshottCamp, Hampshire, 3 March 

1 9 16. Though Marr's desire to reach the firing 
line was never realized he belonged to the goodly 
company of those who had the " willing spirit ". 

Mc WILLIAM, CHARLES THOMAS: Lieu- 
tenant, 5th Battalion Gordon Highland- 
ers ; son of Rev. Thomas McWilliam, Foveran ; 
born New Byth, 4 November 1892 ; educated 
at Fordyce and Banff Academies ; matriculated 
in Arts, 1910; graduated M.A., 1913, and was 
studying Law when war broke out. 





A member of " U " Company, he was mobi- 
lized in August 1 9 14, but by the end of the 
month was commis- 
sioned in the 5th Bat- 
talion Gordon High- 
landers, with whom he 
went to France in May 
1 915. There he was 
attached for duty to 
the 51st Divisional 
Cyclist Company, and 
served with it during 
the remainder of his 
time in France. On 
1 8 March 1 9 1 6 he was 
killed in the trenches 
near Arras, leaving behind him the memory of a 
considerate and devoted gentleman, with a genius 
for making friends, and with the faculty of grasp- 
ing readily all sides of a situation and making 
the wise decision. 

JOHNSTON, GEORGE MITCHELL: 
Captain, Royal Irish Rifles; 

son of Alexander John- 
ston, merchant ; born 
Aberdeen, 8 July 1890 ; 
educated Aberdeen 
Grammar School; 
matriculated in Sci- 
ence (Agricultural), 
1907, and had a dis- 
tinguished career as a 
student. Though quiet 
and reserved in manner 
he was one of the best 
known and most popu- 
lar students at Maris- 

chal College. During his School and College 
career he was a notable Rugby forward, and he 
served in " U " Company while at the Univer- 
sity. He graduated B.Sc. (Agr.) in 191 1. After 
graduation he spent a time gaining experience 
in Canada and then acted as an Assistant 
County Organizer, North of Scotland College of 
Agriculture. He was appointed Agricultural 
Lecturer and Superintendent of the State Ex- 
perimental Farm, Jersey, in 191 3. 

On the outbreak of war Johnston obtained a 
commission with the Jersey Militia, but his 




26 



IN MEMORIAM.. 



ardent spirit and high sense of duty led him to 
seek service with a fighting unit. Despite ob- 
jections and difficulties raised by authorities in 
Jersey, who wished to retain his services in the 
island, with the help of the Governor, he trans- 
ferred with the Foreign Service Company of the 
Militia to the Royal Irish Rifles, with which he 
served first in Ireland and then in England. He 
proceeded to France in 191 5 and was killed in 
action at Hulluch on 3 April 19 16. 

DUGUID, JAMES : 2nd Lieutenant, 7th 
Battalion North Staffordshire Regiment ; 

son of Frank Duguid, 
blacksmith ; born Old 
Deer, 13 December 
1893; educated at 
Banchory and Gordon's 
College, Aberdeen ; 
entered the University 
in October 1912; 
student in Arts and 
Agriculture, 191 2-14. 
By nature quiet and 
reserved, he was a very 
capable student, deeply 
interested in scientific 
agriculture.

Strathdon. He was prepared by his father for 
the University and was also for a short time

a year, and showed his mental worth by taking 
good places in Botany and Physics. 

In November 1 9 1 5 Watt enlisted in " K " Com- 





pany, R.A.M.C, not that war, as such, had any 

attraction for him, but simply from a sense of 

duty. After six months' 

training at Aldershot, 

he was chosen, as a 

Medical student, to go 

to Cambridge for a 

three months' course 

in Bacteriology previous 

to his being sent abroad 

in the Sanitary Section 

of the R.A.M.C. This 

was never carried out, 

for he succumbed to 

serious illness, and died 

in hospital at Aldershot, 

26 April 19 1 6, at the early age of 19. Watt 

was a good student, of a lovable disposition, 

with a " saving sense of humour," and at the 

back of it there was a strong sense of duty 

carried with him from his boyhood spent among 

his native hills and glens.

Charles McGregor has won a sure place for his 
memory in the hearts of hundreds of students 
and a wide circle of friends and fellow-citizens. 
A posthumous work, based on the lectures 
prepared for his classes, and issued for private 
circulation, is marked by close study, clear think- 
ing, and an attractive style of presentation, and 
is evidence that, had he been spared, the author 
might have made fresh and valuable contributions 
to current educational theory and practice.

December 19 14, and served in home camps 
until January 1916 when he was sent abroad 
with the rank of Corporal. He saw active ser- 
vice in France and Belgium for five months, 
then was severely wounded while fixing wire 
entanglements, and died the next day, 30 May 
19 16, in a Casualty Clearing Station at Aubigny. 
His Commanding Officer wrote of Robertson : 
"He was one of the best N.C.O.'s in the Com- 
pany, and was marked out for speedy promotion, 
and his loss is greatly felt by us all. He was 
popular with officers and men, and did his duty 
on all occasions without regard to his personal 
safety. " 

LIPP, FRANK : 2nd Lieutenant, 2nd Bat-

in order to take a degee in Forestry and with 




that aim in view commenced to study Science at 
his Alma Mater. 

Soon after the outbreak of war he enlisted at

Beit Aiessa, on 17 April of the same year. He 
died at Karachi (Station Hospital), 30 May 

1 916, a few days before his brother was killed 
in France. On the testimony of his brother 
officers his military career and example were 
beyond praise, and we who knew him best in 
times of peace will not forget his manliness and 
his never failing optimism.

After training at Bed- 
ford, he went to France 
in May 19 15, and was on the western front until 
the day he was killed in the trenches, 4 June 
19 16. It was Thomson Scott's choice to serve 
in the ranks. His CO. puts on record that 
his services as Company Accountant were in- 
valuable, and his Captain wrote : " He was a 
fine soldier and as fine a comrade ". 



DONALD, ROBERT: Sergeant,

on 4 August 1 9 14, 
trained at Perth and 
Bedford and went to

talion. On the field, 
as a member of the In- 
telligence Section, he proved himself a reliable 
and daring soldier, rising to the rank of Ser- 
geant. He fell in action at Vimy Ridge on 
9 June 191 6. 

Young as he was, Donald, by his depth of 
thought, sincerity of belief, and trustworthy 
character, had already shown himself well fitted 
for his chosen profession — the Church. 





MORRIS, ALFRED GEORGE: 2nd 

Lieutenant, 4th Battalion Gordon High- 
landers; son of 

William F. Morris, 
Aberdeen ; born Wood- 
green, Essex, 17 De- 
cember 1895 ! edu- 
cated at Brighton and 
Robert Gordon's Col-

during the session 1911-12. To get commercial 
experience he joined the Canadian Bank of 
Commerce, and was in their Elgin Branch,

1 91 5, in the Scottish Horse, becoming Corporal 
in a very short time. In August 191 5 he was 
granted a commission in the 4th Battalion 
Gordon Highlanders and went to France on

player, being a member of the Grammar School 
F.P.'s Club. He fol- 
lowed his course of 
military training with 
great enthusiasm and 
thoroughness, and it is 
matter for deep regret 
that he died suddenly 
just on its completion, 
on the eve of his de- 
parture for France. 
His death took place 
at Ripon, 25 June 
19 16, at the age of 

25-

after doing garrison

Battalion Special Bri- 
gade, R.E., where his scientific training stood 
him in good stead. He died of wounds re- 
ceived in action near Albert on 27 June 1916. 
At the University he is remembered as a keen 
" soccer " player, while his unfailing good 
humour gained him universal popularity. 

DAWSON, GEORGE: Corporal, R.E. ; 

son of Alexander Dawson, granite merchant ; 
born Aberdeen, 20 February 1883 ; educated at 
Aberdeen Grammar School ; graduated M.A. 
with First Class Honours in Mathematics and

taught in Kemnay Higher Grade School and 
Elgin Academy, and from 191 1 -14 acted as 
Assistant Science and Mathematical Master in 
the Aberdeen Grammar School. He gave every 





promise of being a successful teacher, and was 
an enthusiastic student of Physical Science. 

On 10 October 1914 
Dawson joined the 
15th Battalion, Royal 
Scots, as a Private. 
From the date of his 
enlistment until 23

Highlanders; son of 
James Conner, Sheriff 
Clerk Depute ; born 
Aberdeen, 20 February 
1895 ; educated at 
Aberdeen Grammar 
School ; matriculated 
in Agriculture in 19 13. 
At the University he 
was a well-known and 
popular figure. His 
career in Agriculture 
was highly successful 
and he looked forward 
to specializing in Forestry. As an athlete and 
sportsman he was recognized as a brilliant all- 
round man. He was a valued member of the 
Grammar F.P.'s Rugby team and a prominent 
member of the Aberdeenshire Cricket Club, and 
as a hobby his greatest pleasure was plying the 
rod and tackle. 

As a member of the Grammar School 
Company of the 4th Gordons he was mobi- 
lized on the outbreak of war. He went to 
France with his unit and rose to the rank of 
Sergeant. In August 191 5, while still abroad, 
he was commissioned to the Seaforths and 
proved himself an ideal soldier and officer. 
He was killed in action on the Somme, 1 July 
1916. 





McCURRACH, GEORGE: 2nd Lieutenant, 
13th Battalion Highland Light Infantry ; 

son of George McCur- 
rach, farm servant; 
born Findochty, 16 
February 1881 ; edu- 
cated Findochty Public 
School, where he was 
later a pupil teacher ; 
subsequently assistant 
at Stewart Thomson's 
Business College, 
Aberdeen. Entering 
Aberdeen University in 
October 1905 he gradu- 
ated M.A. in 1908 and 

was appointed assistant in Whitehills Public 
School, Banffshire. Thereafter he became as- 
sistant in the Central School, Fraserburgh, and 
when he joined the Army was headmaster of 
Ruthven Public School, Cairnie, Banffshire. 

McCurrach enlisted in the 3rd Battalion 
Gordon Highlanders in April 191 5, and on 
being commissioned in the following September 
was transferred to the 13th Battalion Highland 
Light Infantry. After training at Richmond, 
Yorks, he crossed to France, 16 June 19 16, just 
when the notable forward movement from Albert 
was going on. He was attached to the 16th 
Highland Light Infantry and had only been 
about fifteen days in France when he was reported 
missing, and was believed killed, 1 July 19 16. 
As a teacher his work was of a very high order 
and was favourably commented on in all the 
schools in which he taught. His military service 
was very short, but he devoted himself as keenly 
and as scrupulously to his soldiering as he had 
done to the teaching work that was more 
properly his. 

MacRAE, ALFRED REGINALD: 

Assistant Commissioner of Police; 

son of Donald MacRae, stationmaster ; born 
Inverness, 26 January 1888. Educated at Aber- 
deen Grammar School. On leaving the Univer- 
sity where he studied from 1905-08, he took

Durbar ; while later he became an officer of 
the new Delhi Province. There he acted until 
April 19 1 5, gaining a 
reputation among his 
superiors as one of the 
most promising officers 
of the Punjab Police. 

In April 191 5 be- 
gan his more definite 
war-service. He was 
sent to Mesopotamia 
as Assistant Commis- 
sioner of Police under 
the Foreign and Politi- 
cal Department of the 
Government of India. 
There he had the difficult and important duty 
of organizing a new police force, and this was 
a piece of work which made demands upon 
all the skill in dealing with men, which had always 
characterized him. On 1 July 19 16 he died of 
cholera near Nasiriyeh. He was one of the 
many who gave their lives for their country 
whose name appeared in no casualty list. Such 
service as his, given with simplicity, modesty and 
devotion, lays the foundation of order and peace 
in restless and unsettled territory ; and in him 
was lost not only a man of goodness and charm, 
but a loyal, efficient and valued officer of the 
Force he had served so well.

landers. On 1 July 19 1 6 he was instructing a 
class on the action of bombs, when the bomb 
exploded in his hands and killed him. His CO.

way and had proved himself of great value in the 
field on many occasions. ... I shall find it 
hard to fill his place in the Battalion." .

and after a short period of home service (at 
Stoneywood Wireless Station) he rejoined his 
regiment in France ; three months later he was 
mortally wounded in action near Mametz, and 
died on 2 July 19 16. Officers and men alike 
testify to the bravery with which Davidson led 
his men in the face of terrible odds ; his gal- 
lantry and pluck are praised by all who knew 
him under the difficult conditions of active 
service.

fellow wrote : " In his first year at ' King's ' . . . 
he at once became a marked man, for his perfect 
blending of work and play, of social and scholastic

was acting as liaison officer to the infantry in the 
front line near Gommecourt ; when last seen he 
was running a telephone wire over to newly- 
captured trenches. McBain was reported miss- 
ing, then as severely wounded and taken prisoner. 
He died in a German Military Hospital at Vrau- 
court, 9 July 19 16. His brother-officers and the 
men. under him have testified to the enthusiasm 
and cheerfulness which characterized his work 





as an officer. One of his party of telephonists 
afterwards wrote to his CO. : " Later on I 
crawled out for water and looked for him, but 
he and the reel of wire had disappeared, so I 
expect he had most gallantly gone on running 
the wire ... he was a good officer and a true 
Scottish gentleman ". 

SELBIE, COLIN MACKENZIE: 2nd Lieu- 
tenant, 11th Battalion The Cameronians 
(Scottish Rifles); 

son of Professor Selbie, 
Aberdeen U.F. Col- 
lege ; born B i rsay , 
Orkney, 24 February 
1889; educated Mary- 
culter East School and 
Aberdeen G r a m mar 
School ; graduated 
B.Sc, 1910, with dis- 
tinction in Geology ; 
appointed Assistant 
Naturalist in National 
Museum, Dublin, 

1 9 1 1 . Specialized in the study of Myriapoda and 
Crustacea, published "The Decapoda Reptantia 
of the Coasts of Ireland, Part I, Palmura, Asta- 
cura and Anomura ". Part II, dealing with 
Paguridea, was nearly ready for publication when, 
in October 19 14, he enlisted as a private in the 
Royal Scots. 

Commissioned 2nd Lieutenant in the nth 
Scottish Rifles in January 1915, he went to the 
Front in November, was slightly wounded the 
following February, but soon returned to duty. 
On two occasions for considerable periods, he 
commanded his company in the absence of the 
Captain. He fell at Longueval on 14 July 191 6, 
when, to quote the Adjutant " he led his men 
gallantly throughout the assault, and had the 
satisfaction of seeing the position won before he 
was killed by a rifle bullet while heading a bomb- 
ing attack ". His death cut short a very promis- 
ing career both as a scientist and a soldier. " He 
was a born naturalist, a love of animals being one 
of his most marked characteristics." He had 
also a sense of humour which materially helped 
him to endure the discomforts of life in the 
trenches, while his coolness and courage never 
gave way in the hour of danger.

JOSS, ALEXANDER WILLIAM: 
Private, 9th Battalion Highland Light In- 
fantry ; son of Alex- 
ander Joss, farmer ; 
born Disblair, Aber- 
deenshire, 14 June 
1888; educated at 
Robert Gordon's Col- 
lege ; entered the law 
office of Messrs. A. & 
W. Robertson, solici- 
tors, Aberdeen, and 
attended Law classes 
at the University, 
1907-09. After mak- 
ing a fine record, Joss 
qualified as a solicitor in 191 1 and took up a 
position in the law office of Messrs. Maclay, 
Murray &: Spens, of Glasgow. 

He joined the Glasgow Highlanders (9th 
H.L.I.) in September 19 14 as a private, and, 
feeling he could do most good in the ranks, re- 
fused promotion. He saw much active service 
in France at Bethune, La Bassee, and High 
Wood and was reported " missing " in the ad- 
vance on 15 July 1916. He was last seen assist- 
ing a wounded man in No Man's Land, and was 
later reported as " presumed died on that date ". 




LISTER, ARTHUR 
Colonel, R.A.M.C. 



HUGH : Lieutenant- 
(T.); C.M.G. ; son of 

Arthur Lister, F.R.S. ; 
born Leytonstone, 1 
November 1864 ; B.A. 
(Nat. Sc. Tripos), 
Cantab., 1886; M.B., 
A b e r d. (Highest 
Hons.), 1895 ; Murray 
Medallist and Scholar ; 
M.D. (Hons.), 1904; 
Physician and Lecturer 
in Clinical Medicine, 
Royal Infirmary, Aber- 
deen ; University Assis- 
tant in Materia Medica ; 

held a large general, later consulting, practice in 

Aberdeen. 

He served in the Univ. Company R.A.M.C. 

(V., later T.F.), gazetted Brevet Lieut. -Colonel, 

1910; afterwards Lieut.-Colonel, 1st Scottish 




General Hospital, available on mobilization. On 
the outbreak of war, though hampered by indiffer- 
ent health, he at once offered his services, and 
was for a time on the Western Front as Physi- 
cian with Sir Henry Norman's Ambulance. Later 
he was sent to Egypt in command of the 19th 
General Hospital, Alexandria, where his excel- 
lent work gained him the C.M.G. It was char- 
acteristic of him that the repeated warnings of 
his colleagues were unheeded ; he took the risk 
and worked on with unflagging energy, until at 
last he was forced to give in, and died at sea on 
his way home, 17 July 19 16. 

Of Aberdeen graduates who " laid their good 
lives down " Arthur Lister was the most eminent. 
He inherited a name famous in British science, 
but himself possessed intellectual endowment 
above the average, and deep scientific interest. 
As a physician he was beloved by his patients, he 
had insight, reverence, sympathy and uplift, along 
with great personal charm, and possessed in a 
marked degree " the gift of healing ". One 
thinks of his buoyant vitality, his infectious en- 
thusiasm, his unforgettable kindness, his wonder- 
ful chivalry. To Arthur Lister life was a great 
opportunity, and "all was good that Time could 
bring ". The words of a subaltern recall him 
vividly : " He worked unceasingly, patching us 
up, always good to look upon, always charming, 
yet always to the point. 'One must do what 
one can,' he said ; and he did it. That is why 
we, who owe to him not only health, but life it- 
self, will cherish" ever the memory of that ' verray 
parfit gentil knyght '."

IN MEMORIAM. 




In 1915 he enlisted in the 32nd Battalion 
Australian Imperial Force with which he spent 
a time in Egypt. He then proceeded to France, 
but had only been there about three weeks 
when he was killed in action at the Battle of 
the Somme, 19 July 191 6. 

FERGUSON, ALEXANDER LUNDIE 
HUNTER : Lieutenant, Sth Battalion Gor- 
don Highlanders ; 

son of John E. Fergu- 
son, Major, I.M.S. ; 
born Birmingham, 22 
November 1894; edu- 
cated Aberdeen Gram- 
mar School and Epsom 
College. He came up 
to the University in 
191 2, entering the Fa- 
culty of Arts with the 
intention of studying 
for the Indian Police. 
Ferguson was a 
member of Epsom College O.T.C. for three 
years, and in September 1914 enlisted in the 
Public Schools Corps. The following month he 
received a commission in the nth Gordons, and 
in October of 1915 he crossed to France to join 
the 8th Gordons. He was wounded in November 

1915, losing an eye, but returned to France in 
February 1 9 1 6. In March he was wounded again, 
and fell at the Battle of the Somme on 20 July 

1 91 6, while gallantly leading his men into action. 

FRASER, ANDREW: Sergeant, 4th 
Battalion Gordon Highlanders ; son of Wil- 
li a m Fraser, builder, 
Tain ; born Tain, 18 
July 1880; graduated 
M. A. , 1 9 1 o. He 
taught in Fraserburgh 
Academy till 1 9 1 3 , 
when he entered the 
Aberdeen U.F. Col- 
lege. At the close of 
his first session he went 
to Canada where he 
took charge of a Mis- 
sion covering a wide 
district. 




In November 1914 Fraser enlisted as a private 
in the 4th Gordon Highlanders, and was sent to 
France in December 1915. His conspicuous 
ability gained for him the rank of Sergeant, and 
he rendered very efficient service in connection 
with the Machine Gun Section, till his death 
in action at High Wood, in the Somme district, 
on 22 July 191 6. 

Whilst at the University, Fraser was President 
of the Christian Union, and it would be difficult 
to find a more popular President or one who 
more ably filled this difficult post. In the U.F. 
College no student was more loved and esteemed 
than Fraser, of whose future career, owing to 
his sterling character and mental equipment, the 
highest expectations were cherished. 

GUNN, ALEXANDER JAMES : Lanee- 
Sergeant, 4th Battalion Gordon High- 
landers; son of Alex- 
ander Gunn, J.P., Ach-

February 1895. He 
came to Aberdeen with 
a very creditable schol- 
astic and athletic re- 
cord, matriculated in 
Medicine in October 
1 91 3, and in Univer- 
sity Class Lists was in- 
variably well placed. 
As a schoolboy he be- 
came a Territorial, joining the 5th Seaforth 
Highlanders, and, on entering the University, 
transferred to " U " Company, 4th Gordon High- 
landers. He went to Flanders in February 
1915, and rapidly made a name for himself as a 
fearless soldier, being recommended for decora- 
tion for bravery in the field on 16 June 191 5. 
In the Loos offensive he was dangerously- 
wounded but made a rapid recovery. Without 
waiting for a Commission, he requested to be 
posted overseas, and June 1916 saw him again 
in France, just in time for the Somme offensive. 
He was reported wounded and missing after a 
night attack on High Wood on 22 July 1916, 
and since concluded " killed in action " on that 
date. 

Concerning him one of his men wrote: "He 




36 



AY MEM0R1AM. 




was the best Sergeant I ever had, so joyous, so 
fearless/' while his officers wrote, "I have 
always known him to be an absolutely fearless 
man, and one whom, more than anybody else, 
I would have liked with me in a tight corner ". 
" He had a magnificent record out here, and 
was one who could be least easily spared."

1915 ; there he was soon promoted Company 
Sergeant-Major. Early in 19 16 he was home 
on leave. He rejoined the Battalion in May, 
and returned to France with a draft in the be- 
ginning of July to take part in the Battle of the 
Somme. During this engagement he was re-

Falconer was keenly interested in the welfare of 
his Company and was popular with both officers 
and men. He proved himself a reliable soldier, 
and showed courage and fearlessness in the ful- 
filment of his duties. 

FYFE, LESLIE : Private, 4th Battalion 
Gordon Highlanders ; son of James Fyfe, com- 
mercial traveller ; born 
Culter, 24 May 1892 ; 
educated at Gordon's 
College ; student in 
Arts, 1911-12. Both 
at College and at the 
University his retiring 
disposition kept him 
practically unknown to 
all but a few, but by 
those few he was 
greatly esteemed. 
After one session at 
the University he was 
appointed manager on a tobacco-growing estate 
in Nyasaland, and during his three years there 
saw some service with native troops. 

In 1 91 5 he returned home and enlisted in 
the Gordon Highlanders, and after the usual 
training at Ripon went to France, where he died 
on 23 July 19 1 6 of wounds received in action

Aberdeen after a good 
school record at Tain 
Academy, he matri- 
culated in Medicine in 
1 9 1 3. At the Univer- 
sity he soon established 
himself as an athlete,

information about the enemy trenches and was 
reported missing on 23 July 191 6, and later pre- 
sumed killed. His CO. wrote of him : " He 
died the death of a hero. He 'played the 
game ' in everything and finished with a stain- 
less character." 



BRIAN : Captain, 

third son of Captain 




BROOKE, HENRY 
Gordon Highlanders 

Sir Harry V. Brooke 
of Fairley ; born Lick- 
leyhead, Aberdeen- 
shire, 9 December 
1889 ; educated Clifton 
College ; student in 
Science, 1906-07. He 
came of a distinguished 
fighting family and all 
his three brothers were 
in the service. One 
gained the V.C., two 
lost their lives, and the 
third was badly 
wounded in the great war. As Brooke was pre- 
vented by his eyesight from becoming a soldier 
he trained himself for colonial life, and this led 
him to take classes in the Agricultural depart- 
ment for a session. He also prepared himself 
by the severest physical exercises for the life he 
had in view. At the age of eighteen he pro- 
ceeded to East Africa as a pioneer farmer, 
and afterwards tried planting in Ceylon for a 
time. Finding that life too tame he returned to 
Uganda where he led the life of a pioneer and 
frontiersman, and at the outbreak of war was 
acting as a transport officer on the Jubaland 
frontier. 

Brooke at once enlisted as a Trooper in the 
British East African Force, and soon rose to the 
rank of Captain. After being severely wounded 
he returned to Britain and was transferred as a 
Captain to his father's old regiment, the 2nd 
Gordon Highlanders. Early in 1916 he went 



38 



LV MEMO RI AM. 



to France, and led his Company in the memor- 
able charge at Mametz on i July, where he was 
wounded three times before he was knocked 
out. He was mentioned in dispatches for his 
gallantry on this famous occasion, and died of 
his wounds in London on 24 July 1916. Dur- 
ing his varied career he found time to write, and 
a volume of his poems was published after his 
death. 

Brian Brooke will be remembered by all who 
knew him as a noble and adventurous spirit, one 
of the bravest of the brave. 

McC0 3IBIE, JOHN ALEXANDER: 

Sergeant, 4th Battalion Gordon High- 
landers ; son of John 
A. McCombie, cycle 
agent; born New- 
hills, 22 May 1895 ; 
educated at Robert 
Gordon's College, 
Aberdeen; matricu- 
lated in Medicine, 

Whilst at Gordon's 
College he joined " E " 
Company of the 4th 
Gordons, was mobi- 
lized on the outbreak 
of war, went with his Company to Bedford 
(where he was attached Bde. H.Q.), and crossed 
with the 4th Battalion to France in February 
1915. His medical knowledge was used to 
advantage in his appointment in May 191 5 as 
medical orderly to the Battalion, a post after his 
own heart, and in this position he attained the 
rank of Sergeant. Wholeheartedly devoted to 
his duties, he gave of himself unsparingly and 
well, and won the appreciation of all who knew 
him. On 25 July 1916, he died of wounds 
received in action at High Wood. 

At School and College McCombie was de- 
servedly popular, and from the Front his Medical 
Officer wrote of him : " He was a most depend- 
able boy, a thorough gentleman, always kind, 
always calm, always brave — and willing ". 

LYON, ROBERT: Captain, 5th Battal- 
ion Gordon Highlanders; son of Sir 
Alexander Lyon, Ex-Lord Provost of Aberdeen ; 





born Aberdeen, 14 September 1891 ; educated 
at the Grammar School and University of Aber- 
deen, where he gradu- 
ated M.A. (II Econ. 
Sc), 1912, and LL.B. 
(with distinction) in 
1 9 14, gaining the 
Hunter Gold Medal 
for Roman La w. 
Thereafter he went to 
Edinburgh, and with a 
view to being called to 
the Bar, spent a year 
in the office of Messrs. 
Dalgleish, Dobie & 
Co. 

For four years prior to the war he served in 
the University Company, 4th Gordon High- 
landers, retiring as a Sergeant. Lyon received 
his commission in the 5th Gordons in November 
1 9 14, and proceeded to France with his Batta- 
lion in May 19 15. He was killed at Delville 
Wood, on the Somme, 30 July 19 16. He was 
a man of great mental distinction, original, 
resourceful and convincing, with an alert mind 
and ready speech. In military service he was 
an energetic disciplinarian, prompt in his work, 
and unalterable in his decisions and practice 
where right and duty were concerned. In dis- 
position he was supremely generous, considerate 
and unselfish. There was a natural charm about 
him that made him wonderfully attractive and 
fascinating. He was a radiant youth who loved 
laughter and sunshine, and clean and happy 
things. He was marked for high position in 
life. He meant to go far. He had a dominat- 
ing spirit and strong will. He was killed storm- 
ing an enemy's position. So ended a life of 
great promise and hope. The writer of these 
lines loved him as a man and a brother, and is 
one of many who will ever mourn the loss of a 
brilliant friend, and keep in undying remem- 
brance his strength and daring, his reverence for 
high things, his gentleness where he loved, and 
his unswerving fidelity in all the graver issues 
of life. 

KENNEDY, JOHN ALEXANDER: Cap-

IN MEMORIAM. 




Banff; born Ellon, 20 October 1878; educated 
at Banff Academy ; entered the University as 
seventh bursar and had 
a distinguished career,

(Hons. Maths.), 1902 ; 
and B.Sc, 1905. He 
attended several Agri- 
cultural Classes in 
session 1904-05, 
After holding various 
positions, at Mortlach 
Public School, Ding- 
wall Academy and the 
Central H.G. School, 
Aberdeen, he was ap- 
pointed headmaster of Lhanbryd Public School, 
Morayshire. 

Kennedy was mobilized as an Officer in the 
6th Seaforth Highlanders, in August 19 14, and 
proceeded with the Battalion to France in May 
1915. Owing to his scientific training, he was 
appointed a Gas Officer to the 51st Division, a 
position he held until his death from wounds 
near Corbie, on the Somme, 6 August 1916. 

URQUHART, REV. WILLIAM: Lieu- 
tenant, 1st Battalion Black Watch; 

son of William Urqu- 
hart, marine engineer ;

1894 ; matriculated, 
1902 ; graduated M.A. 
with Second Class 
Honours in Philo- 
sophy in 1906, win- 
ning the Gladstone 
Memorial Prize. 
Under the auspices of 
the Aberdeen Univer- 
sity Missionary Association he superintended 
with universal acceptance and much success 
the " Spital Mission " during the winter session 
of 1906 and the summer vacation of 1907, 
During the summer of 1908 he worked on 
a Rancher Mission in Alberta and graduated 
B.D. in 1909, being Brown Scholar of that 
year. He was assistant minister in Inveresk 




Parish Church, 1909-10, and subsequently as- 
sistant minister -in New Greyfriars, Edinburgh, 
1910-12, when he was elected to the parish 
of Kinloch - Rannoch, in the Presbytery of 
Weem. 

While a student in Arts, Urquhart joined 
the Scottish Horse in the year of the foundation 
of the University troop and, feeling he owed 
to his country a debt for the military training 
he had received during his arts career, he 
enlisted about September 1914 as a Private 
in the Royal Scots (McRae's Battalion). A 
fearless thinker and a beloved pastor, he was 
now to show himself a gallant soldier. In 
191 6 he received a commission in the 1st 
Battalion, Black Watch, where he was a 
general favourite among his fellow - officers. 
While leading his men to battle in Mametz 
Wood on 16 August 1916, he was instant- 
aneously killed.

On 10 December 
1 91 5 Pirie went to 
Inverness to enlist in 
the 3/4th Camerons 
and was then sent for 

training to Ripon, his abilities as a piper soon 
gaining him a place in the band. He was 
transferred to the i/4th Camerons and on 12 
July 19 1 6 landed in France, where he met 
an untimely death a few weeks later — near 
Bazentin-Le-Petit, 18 August 19 16 — on his way 
through the front line trenches to take a fallen 
comrade's place as a stretcher bearer. One 
of the many who laid down for posterity an 
unripened life, he was of gentle and modest 
demeanour, upright and honest in character; 
his friendship was not easily gained but was 
worth cultivating.

entered Westminster College, Cambridge, to 



study for the Ministry ; here he had a very dis- 
tinguished career, passing out with Honours and 
taking the first place in the College in 191 5. 
He took his B.A. and B.D., at London Univer- 
sity and was licensed as a preacher by the Pres- 
bytery of Liverpool. 

Johnston joined the army as a combatant, 
entering the Inns of Court O.T.C. in August 
1 91 5. In June 191 6 he was gazetted to the 
London Regiment, and two months later left 
for France with the Queen's Westminster Rifles. 
His service abroad was short — he fell in 
action on the Somme on 10 September 1916. 

Though his career in the Church was thus 
cut short, Johnston had already shown his 
ability. A writer in " The Presbyterian Mes- 
senger " says of him : " As a preacher his pro- 
mise was great. He was everywhere recognized 
as a man of character and gifts." 

KING, JOHN ALEXANDER : 2nd Lieuten-

MURRAY, CHARLES ROBINSON : 2nd 

Lieutenant, 9th Battalion King's Own

December 1883 ; grad- 
uated M.A. (Glasgow), 
1903; student in 
Science, Aberdeen, 
1903-05 ; taught at 
Juniper Green, Mid- 
lothian, and at Peebles. 
Murray joined up 
at the beginning of 
the war as a Private, and served with the Royal 
Scots until the spring of 19 15 when he was com- 
missioned in the K.O.S.Bs., with which regiment 
he went to France. He fell in action on the 
Somme Front on 16 September 19 16. 

TENNANT, EDWARD MARTIN COOKES : 
Lieutenant, 4th Battalion Gordon High- 
landers ; son of Ed- 
ward Tennant, insur- 
ance secretary ; born 
Aberdeen, 30 August, 
1896; educated at 
Aberdeen Gram m a r 
School ; had completed 
his first year of science 
at the University in 
1914. 

Tennant joined 
the Grammar School 
Company of the 4th 
G o r d o n Highlanders 
in 19 1 3, and was mobilized at the outbreak of war. 
He was in training at Bedford until May 19 15, 
when he received his commission in the same 
Battalion. In September of 191 5 he was wounded 
at Hooge, and spent some months in an English 
Hospital, returning to France in May of the next 
year. His death, on 16 September 19 16, was due 
to wounds received in action at Serre, while he 
was in charge of a party covering a raid on 
German trenches. The letters written by his 
Colonel and his fellow-officers show the respect 
and affection in which he was held : " Always 





bright, willing and keen, always punctual and 
painstaking in his duties, and ready to do any- 
thing that was asked of him without the slightest 
grumble ". " Brave without ostentation, thorough 
'without fuss,' he was a favourite with men and 
officers alike." 

STRACHAN, ALEXANDER LEDING- 
HAM : Surgeon-Probationer, R.N.V.R. ; 

son of Alexander 
Strachan, chemist; 
born Aberdeen, 29 
November 1894; 
entered the University 
October 1913 ; student 
in Medicine, 19 13- 16. 
Whilst at the Uni- 
versity Strachan joined 
the O.T.C., and when 
an appeal was issued 
for Surgeon Proba- 
tioners for the Navy he 
at once volunteered, 

was commissioned March 19 16, and appointed 
to H.M.S. "Genista," a mine-sweeping vessel. 
There were few dull moments in Strachan's 
brief service career — on his way to join his ship 
he reached Dublin in the midst of the rebellion, 
and took charge of a hospital there ; later the 
"Genista" saved the lives of the officers and 
crew of a ship which was found in a sinking 
condition, and Strachan received a special letter 
of thanks along with a presentation for his good 
services on the occasion. On 23 October 1916 
he went down with his ship in the Atlantic, the 
" Genista " being torpedoed by an enemy sub- 
marine and sunk on that date. 



CATTO, ROBERT KILGOURTHOM: Cap- 
tain, 4th Battalion Gordon Highlanders; 

son of James Catto, wine-merchant ; born Aber- 
deen, 28 February 1873 ; educated Aberdeen 
Grammar School ; student in Medicine, 1891-92. 
At the outbreak of war he was in the firm of 
Messrs. James Catto Ltd., Aberdeen, where he 
had acted as Managing Director for fifteen years. 
In October 19 14 Catto was commissioned in 
the Gordons and served with the 2/4th and, 
later, with the i/4th Battalions in France from

May 1916. He was 




only a few months in 
France when he fell, 
killed by a stray shell, 
at Beaumont Hamel, 
5 November 1 9 1 6. 
His Colonel wrote of 
him : " By his death 
I have lost an ex- 
cellent officer who was 
most valuable and effi- 
cient, and was one 
who was remarkably 
cool and brave under 
fire on all occasions ". 



BIRSS, NORMAN : Sergeant, 7th Bat- 
talion Gordon Highlanders ; son of James 
Birss, police con- 
stable, Skene ; born 
Skene, 13 July 1893; 
educated Gordon's 
College ; student in 
Arts, 1912-14. 

He joined the Ter- 
ritorials in 191 1, and 
was mobilized 5 August 
1 9 14, with the 7th 
Battalion Gordon 
Highlanders. Birss 
went with his Battalion 
to Bedford, where he 
remained till May 1915, then proceeded to 
France, where he was killed in action at Beau- 
mont-Hamel, on the Somme Front, 13 November 
1 9 16. His Company officer wrote of him: 
" He was an efficient and intelligent soldier, and 
one likely to rise in rank rapidly, had he been 
spared ". 

FERGUSON, ROBERT WILLIAM : 2nd 
Lieutenant, 5th Battalion Gordon High- 
landers ; son of Alexander Ferguson, painter ; 
born Peterhead, 20 October 1887 ; educated at 
Peterhead Academy ; entered Aberdeen Univer- 
sity 1905 ; graduated M.A. with honours in 
Mathematics, 1909; B.Sc, 1910. He was a 
keen student of nature, took a special course of 
Botany at Oxford University, and had gathered 
much valuable material concerning the Flora of 





Banffshire with a view to its publication. Fer- 
guson proved himself a very successful teacher, 
doing good work at 
Aberlour, Nairn and 
Sharpe's Institute, 
Perth ; he took up the 
Boy Scout movement 
with great enthusiasm 
and was popular with 
both parents and 
pupils. 

In April 19 15 he en- 
listed in his old Col- 
lege Company, the 4th 
Gordon Highlanders, 
was later commissioned 

in the 5th Battalion and thereafter was appointed 
Musketry Officer. Ferguson went through his 
training at Aberdeen, Peterhead and Ripon and 
crossed to France in 1916, took part in the early 
Somme Battles and was killed in action at Beau- 
mont-Hamel, 13 November 19 16. 

GILLIES, JAMES BROWN : Major, 4th 
Battalion Gordon Highlanders ; son of T. 

R. Gillies, advocate in 
Aberdeen ; born Aber- 
deen, 29 July 1886 ; 
educated at the Gram- 
mar School ; matricu- 
lated, 1904; B.L., 
1908 ; served his ap- 
prenticeship with 
Messrs. C. & P. H. 
Chalmers, Advocates, 
and Messrs. Tods, 
Murray & Jamieson, 
W.S., Edinburgh; 
member of the Society 

of Advocates in Aberdeen and a partner in 
business with his father. 

While at King's College he enlisted in the 
University Company of the 4th Gordon High- 
landers and subsequently became Brigade Signal- 
ling Officer, retiring in 191 2 with the rank of 
Captain. Immediately on the outbreak of war, 
although his health at the time gave cause for 
anxiety, he rejoined his Battalion with his 
former rank of Captain, and was retained as 
Adjutant to the reserve unit for over a year. 




43 



IN MEMORIAM. 



Ultimately he was posted to the 4th Gordons in 
France, and after participating in the whole of 
the Sotnme Battle, during which he rendered 
most valuable service in his own efficient way, 
he was killed in action near Beaumont-Hamel 
on 13 November 1916. 

Major Gillies was a man of singular personal 
charm, frank, fair and fearless, whose sound 
judgment, knowledge of humanity and profes- 
sional attainments gave promise of a most useful 
and successful career. Apart from business he 
was an enthusiastic golfer and mountaineer, and 
as Secretary of the University Club and of the 
Cairngorm Club was held in the highest esteem 
by a wide circle of friends, to whom, as well as 
to his profession, his untimely end was a tragic 
loss. 

GRAY, ANGUS FRANCIS: Sergeant, 
5th Battalion Seaforth Highlanders ; son 

of John Gray, farmer, 
Collaboll, Lairg ; born 
Lairg, 27 Novem- 
ber 1894; entered the 
University 1910; stu- 
dent in Agriculture 
1910-13. 

As a member of the 
Territorial Force he 
was called up in August 
1 9 14, and after a 
period of training went 
overseas with the 5th 
Seaforths. Being a 
keen and energetic soldier he quickly attained 
the rank of Platoon Sergeant, and, although 
twice offered a commission on the field, he 
refused it. He fell at the fatal advance on 
Beaumont-Hamel in the dawn of 13 November 
19 1 6. His loss was keenly felt by his platoon, 
all of whom had become greatly attached to him. 
A comrade in arms wrote : "He always proved 
himself a soldier and a man and feared no 
danger, ever bright and cheerful, with a kindly 
word for everybody ". 

JENKINS, DONALD FRASER : 2nd 
Lieutenant, 6th Battalion Seaforth 
Highlanders; M.C. ; son of William D. Jen- 
kins, Aberdeen; born Burghead, 17 December 





He was awarded the 



1896 ; educated at Elgin Academy and Gordon's 
College, Aberdeen. He spent nearly two years 
gaining experience of 
practical agriculture in 
Easter Ross and matric- 
ulated as an Agri- 
cultural student in 
1914. 

Jenkins enlisted in 
the 4th Gordon High- 
landers in August 19 1 5. 
Early in the following 
year he received a com- 
mission in the 6th Sea- i 
forth Highlanders and 
proceeded to France 
with his unit in June 191 6. 
M.C, 15 September 1916, for services in connec- 
tion with a very successful raid on the German 
trenches near Armentieres, and was killed in ac- 
tion at Beaumont-Hamel on 13 November 1916. 

MERSON, WILLIAM MURISON SMITH : 
Captain, 7th Battalion Gordon High- 
landers ; son of 

Joseph Merson, solicit- 
or ; born Aberdeen, 
3 August 1892, but 
spent most of his life 
in Banchory ; educated 
Robert Gordon's Col- 
lege, Aberdeen; 
matriculated, 1 9 1 o ; 
graduated M. A., 1913; 
LL.B., 1914. 

A pre-war member 
of " U " Company, 4th 
Gordon Highlanders, 
he went with the Battalion to Bedford in August 
1 9 14, but before the end of the month he had 
been commissioned in the 7th Battalion Gordon 
Highlanders. With them he crossed to France 
in May 1915, where he served continuously 
until November 1916, when, early on the morning 
of the 51st Division's memorable exploit at 
Beaumont-Hamel, he was killed in action, 13 
November 1916. Several months before his 
death he had been promoted Captain, an 
advancement well merited by his record of 
keen and conscientious service.

IX MEMORIAM. 




Merson was never widely known, but he took 
his share in all the activities of 'Varsity life, 
representing his year in the S.R.C. and giving 
valuable help in the Societies and at social 
functions. Those of his contemporaries who 
knew him cherish the memory of a loyal and 
kindly personality, in which strength of char- 
acter was combined with gaiety of disposition. 

SMITH, ROBERT JAMES : 2nd Lieu- 
tenant, 6th Battalion Seaforth High- 
landers ; son of John 
Smith, East Mains, 
Knockando ; born 
Knockando, Moray- 
shire, ii October 
1889; he received his 
early education at the 
local Public School and 
afterwards came to the 
University where he 
studied Agriculture, 
1 9 1 o- 1 4. He obtained 
the University Diploma 
in Agriculture in 19 13 
and the National Diploma in Dairying, and in 
1914 took the National Diploma in Agriculture, 
with distinction. 

He was appointed to a post in the Inland 
Revenue Lands Valuation Department, but had 
only been there three months when, as a member 
of " U " Company, 4th Gordons, he was called to 
the colours. After a period of training he crossed 
to France in February 191 5, and in May was 
severely wounded and sent home. Smith was 
recommended for a commission and gazetted to 
the 6th Seaforths in August 1915. On 1 Septem- 
ber 1916 he returned to France and in autumn of 
that year he was killed by a shell when leading 
his company on the third enemy line, 13 
November 1916. 

STEPHEN, WILLIAM : Captain, 5th 
Battalion Gordon Highlanders; 

son of George Stephen, merchant ; born Fraser- 
burgh, 27 November 1881 ; educated Fraser- 
burgh Academy, Aberdeen Grammar School ; 
M.A., 1903; joined his father as a partner in 
the firm of G. Stephen & Co., merchants and 
herring exporters, Fraserburgh. 




In October 19 14 he was reinstated as Cap- 
tain in the Gordon Highlanders, in which regiment 
he had previously held 
a Territorial commis- 
sion. After training in 
England, he received 
the offer of a post as 
musketry instructor, 
which would have kept 
him at home. He 
chose, however, to go 
to the Front and his 
Battalion was early in 
action. After only a 
few days in France, a 
sudden German attack 

upon our trenches resulted in hand-to-hand 
fighting in which Captain Stephen's company 
was engaged. At the Battle of the Ancre, 
near Beaumont-Hamel, on 13 November 1916, 
as Stephen was leading his company in a 
daring attack upon the German trenches, he 
was struck by a hand grenade and killed 
instantaneously. He was a man known to his 
friends as " most kindly-dispositioned, loving- 
hearted, and unselfish," constantly thinking of 
the comfort and happiness of his men, admired 
and trusted by them as a friend and leader in 
more than warfare. In him his own town of 
Fraserburgh lost a son of whom it was proud, 
one to whom all local matters were of interest and 
in whom every good cause found a ready helper. 

WILSON, JOHN ALEXANDER : 2nd 

Lieutenant, 5th Battalion Gordon High- 
landers ; son of John 
C. Wilson, engineer ; 
born Glasgow, 21 May 
1890; educated Aber- 
deen Central School ; 
graduated M.A., 19 13. 
Prior to enlisting he 
was an English Master 
at Campbeltown, and 
latterly at Fraserburgh, 
Although he made an 
able and enthusiastic 
teacher, it was his real 
intention to follow out 
a Divinity course. He took a keen interest in 




45 



IN ME MORI AM. 



social work, especially in the athletic side of the 
Y.M.C.A. and Boys' Brigade. 

In April 191 5 Wilson joined the 5 th Gordons, 
and was commissioned in November 191 5. 
After taking a special course in bayonet and 
musketry work he embarked for France ; six 
months later whilst serving as Intelligence Officer, 
he was killed in action, 13 November 191 6, at 
Beaumont-Hamel, during an advance on the 
Somme. His comrades bear testimony to his 
leadership, courage and keen sense of duty in 
the field. 

BEGG, HENRY : Captain, R.A.M.C. ; 

son of George Begg, 
farmer ; born Glen- 
kindie, 10 October 
1 88 1 ; educated Glen- 
kindie Public School ; 
matriculated, 1900; 
graduated M. B. , 
1906. Later he took 
up practice in Kentish 
Town, London, acting 
also as Clinical As- 
sistant at the Great 
Northern Central 
Hospital and the 
Mount Vernon Chest Hospital. Commissioned 
in the R.A.M.C. in 19 15 he was posted to 
the 2/ist Highland Field Ambulance, with 
which he served continuously in France until 
his death at Beaumont-Hamel on 14 November 
19 1 6. 

Henry Begg was not a man who laid himself 
out to gain popularity ; but no one was more 
deservedly popular owing to sterling merit, fngh 
courage and cheerfulness of disposition in 
difficulties. He never lost either heart or head ; 
he believed that difficulties existed for the 
purpose of being overcome ; and in consequence 
he gained the affection and trust of his men to a 
high degree. He was an ideal stretcher-bearer 
officer ; for those under him knew he would 
never send them where he was not prepared to 
take them. The sense of loss felt by his unit on 
his death was great ; his brother officers wrote : 
" We remember his bright and cheerful dis- 
position at all times and under any circum- 
stances. He was always in the forefront of what 





was going on, helpful to everyone else and 
always unselfish." 

LYALL, JAMES : 2nd Lieutenant, 1st 
Battalion Gordon Highlanders; 

son of James Lyall, 
fisherman ; born Mac- 
duff, 12 August 1888 ; 
educated Banff Aca- 
demy ; graduated M..A, 
1 9 10. He taught for 
some years in Turriff 
Higher Grade School, 
and in 19 13 went to 
South Africa to take 
up an appointment in 
the Boys' High School, 
Grahamstown. 

Lyall was one of 
those sons of Alma who " came from the ends of 
the earth " to take his share in the great ad- 
venture of the European war. He enlisted in 
the 1 ith Battalion Gordon Highlanders in 
November 1915, and was commissioned to the 
1 st Battalion in the following December. After 
training in Aberdeen and Bridge of Allan he went 
to France in September 19 16, but his term of 
foreign service was very brief. He was wounded 
at Beaumont-Hamel on 13 November, and died 
14 November 19 16 of the wounds he had received 
in action the previous day. Lyall's was a very 
alive, attractive personality, radiating life and 
cheerfulness whether at sport or study. He 
threw himself with unflagging zeal into the 
matter in hand, alike in the classroom with his 
pupils or in the strenuous days of military 
service. 

CRICHTON, REV. NORMAN: 2nd Lieu- 
tenant, 4th Battalion Seaforth High- 
landers ; son of William Crichton, mason, 
Stornoway ; born Stornoway, 3 February 1888; 
graduated M.A., 1911; student for three years 
at Aberdeen U.F. College. 

In October 19 14 he enlisted as a Private 
in the 4th Gordon Highlanders, and was after- 
wards commissioned as 2nd Lieutenant in the 
4th Seaforths. Before proceeding abroad he 
was licensed as a probationer by the U.F. 
Presbytery of Lewis. He rendered distinguished 



46 



IN ME MORI AM. 



service as a bombing officer in France, and fell 
in action at Beaumont-Hamel on 15 November 
19 1 6. Celtic fervour 
and eloquence, com- 
bined with thorough 
scholarship, marked 
Crichton as one who 
would have proved a 
highly successful mini- 
ster. He was a most 
lovable man, and had 
gained a warm place 
in the hearts of those 
in the Mission where 
he laboured ; the same 
power of attraction 
drew his men to him in the army, for they 
knew he always shared every risk along with 
them. 




MACLEOD, REV. 
ANDER: Y.M.C.A. 



WILLIAM ALEX- 

Service, Mediterran- 
ean Expeditionary 

Force ; son of William 
Macleod, stereotyper ; 
born Aberdeen, 28 
August 1 88 1. For 
several years he was in 
the service of the Uni- 
versity Press ; but he 
creditably aspired to 
the Christian Ministry, 
and his employer, who 
sympathized with his 
aspiration, consider- 
ately facilitated his 
attendance at the University as a student in Arts 
in 1907 and after. In 1913 he became a 
Divinity student, gained several class-prizes, and 
while still a student, became missionary assistant 
to the minister of the West Church, Aberdeen, 
in which post he gained the high esteem and 
warm regard of the congregation. He resigned 
his work in the spring of 1916 and became 
(after licence) assistant to the minister of Tarves. 
Within a few months thereafter, however, he 
was moved by patriotic sentiment to offer himself 
for war-service as a Hut Chaplain, under the 
Y.M.C.A., and was stationed at Salonika where 
his work was much appreciated. Before the year 





expired he died of dysentery, 16 November 191 6. 
The Chairman of the National Council of the 
Y.M.C.A. bore cordial witness to the " en- 
couragement and comfort " which the soldiers 
received from Macleod's devoted ministrations, 
and a fellow-worker, a Canon of the Church of 
England, testified to the " mingled strength and 
tenderness of his character ". 

SIMPSON, JOHN WATT: 2nd Lieuten- 
ant, 7th Battalion Border Regiment ; 

son of James Simpson, 
bank agent; born 
Portree, 10 November 
1888; graduated M.A., 
1909 ; LL.B., 191 1 ; 
Hunter Prize. 

Early in September 
1914, Simpson enlisted 
as a Private in the 8th 
Battalion Rifle Brigade, 
attained the rank of 
Corporal and was sent 
to France in May 1915, 
experiencing fierce 

fighting at Ypres, Hooge and Arras. In 
September 19 16 he was commissioned to the 
7th Border Regiment, and was accidently killed 
by a bomb explosion at Amiens on 8 December 
191 6. 

SURTEES, RICHARD : Private, 4th 
Battalion Gordon Highlanders; 

son of William L. Sur- 
tees, merchant, Gran- 
town-on-Spey ; born 
there, 1 June 1892 ; 
educated at Grantown 
Grammar School, and 
for one session at Gor- 
don's College, Aber- 
deen ; he entered the 
University with a Mel- 
ville Bursary, gained 
distinction in Classics 
and English, and gradu- 
ated M.A., 1914. At 

the outbreak of war Surtees was at the Training 
Centre for Teachers, preparing for his chosen 
profession. 




47 



IN ME MORI AM. 




On 17 January 191 5 he enlisted in the 4th 
Gordon Highlanders and later crossed with 
them to France. He came through the heavy 
campaign of 191 6 unscathed, but early in 
December he was so severely wounded that 
he died a few days later, 13 December 191 6. 

COLLIE, JAMES KIRTON : Private, 5th 
Battalion Gordon Highlanders ; son of 

James Collie, wood- 
turner ; born Kincard- 
ine O'Neilj 20 March 
1893 ; he was educated 
at Gordon's College, 
came up to the Univer- 
sity in 1 91 3 and gradu- 
ated M.A. in 1916. 

Collie enlisted in the 
i/7th Gordon High- 
landers 15 April 1 916, 
and was attached later 
to the 5 th Battalion. 
After training at Ripon, 
and Rugeley (where he qualified as a Scout) 
he crossed to France early in November, and 
had served for only a few weeks when he was 
killed by an enemy shell at Courcelles, 16 
December 1916. 

TAYLOR, ANDREW JAMES BAXTER : 

Private, 4th Battalion Gordon Highland- 
ers ; born Ayr, 14 
September 1895 ; edu- 
cated Robert Gordon's 
College ; student in 
Arts 1913-15 ; M.A., 
March 191 7 (post- 
humous award). 

He enlisted in the 
4th Battalion Gordon 
Highlanders, 21 Janu- 
ary 1916 ; after six 
months' training at 
Ripon he crossed to 
France, and five 
months later he died, on 28 December 1916, 
of wounds received in action at Courcellette. 
Taylor's brief military career cut short a life 
of great promise ; he possessed a disciplined 
mind, a virile intellect, a forceful personality 




and great enthusiasm for the matter in hand 
whatever it might be. His special bent was 
towards English literature and language. He 
had intended to take Honours in Arts, and 
as he had fulfilled all the requirements for the 
ordinary degree of M.A. this was conferred 
upon him by the Senatus after his death. 
Taylor was only 21, he will be remembered 
as one of those who gave " their lives, their 
youth, their golden dreams ". 

REID, WILLIAM MITCHELL: Private, 
2nd Battalion South African Scottish ; 

son of James Reid ; 
born New York, 4 
October 1888 ; edu- 
cated Keam School, 
Duffus, and Gordon's 
College, Aberdeen. 
He entered the Uni- 
versity in 1906, gradu- 
ated M. A., 1909. 
After having taught 
at Tomintoul Public 
School and the Higher 
Grade School, Rothe- 
say, he received in 

191 2 an appointment to the Boys' College, 
Dundee, South Africa. 

Reid volunteered for Imperial Service and 
joined the South African Infantry in August 
1 9 14, serving through the West African Cam- 
paign under General Botha. He volunteered 
for further service in France and came to 
England with his regiment in April 1916. He 
served with the Expeditionary Force in France 
and Flanders from December 1916 onwards, 
and died at Frevent, 3 January 191 7, from 
wounds received in action. " Scrupulous fidel- 
ity " had characterized him as a lad and as 
the years went on that same fidelity to his 
ideals made him give up his profession and 
cross the seas to fight for King and Country.

He joined the Boy Scouts in 1909, and in 
the first months of the war he did good seryice 
in charge of a troop 
assisting the Coast- 
guard at Cruden Bay. 
At the University he 
joined the Officers 
Training Corps, and 
when it was decided 
that all first and second 
year medical students 
should join up he ob- 
tained a commission 
in the 5 th Gordon 
Highlanders, Decem- 
ber 1915. After train- 
ing at various camps in England he was sent 
to France on 1 July 19 16, and went through 
the first Battle of the Somme. In October 
of that year he joined the Royal Flying Corps 
as an observer, and was just up for his last 
flight to obtain his " wings " when a bullet 
from an enemy aeroplane rendered him un- 
conscious, and he died in hospital soon after, 
7 January 1917. A fellow-officer writes: "a 
life like his was so transparently beautiful and 




sincere that it needs no eulogies 
he lived — a British gentleman ".

Professor Burgess then settled in Sheffield, 
and was for many years on the staff of Sheffield 
General (afterwards Royal) Hospital where he 




became Senior Physician, holding also the post 
of Lecturer in Medicine in Sheffield University 
College, and, on the foundation of Sheffield 
University, he became Professor of Medicine. 
He was one of the members of the Sheffield 
Medico-Chirurgical Society chosen in 1890 to 
visit Berlin and report on Professor Koch's 
treatment of tubercular disease. 

At the outbreak of war Professor Burgess 
was appointed Officer in Charge of the Medical 
Section, Third Northern General Hospital, 
with the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel. The 
strain of the work proved at length too much 
for his strength, and he died in Sheffield on 
17 January 191 7. 

GALLOWAY, JOHN : Corporal, 40th Bat- 
talion Australians (Tasmanian Conting- 
ent, B.E.F.); son of 

Tohn Galloway, 
H.M.I.S. ; born Dum- 
fries, 11 November 
1881 ; educated at 
Gordon's College ; 
studied Arts and Sci- 
ence at Aberdeen Uni- 
versity, 1904-06. For

Some years ago he 

emigrated to Tasmania, where he became a suc- 
cessful fruit farmer. 

In May 191 6 Galloway enlisted in the 40th 
Battalion Australians (Tasmanian Contingent) 
and landed at Plymouth, December 19 16, but 
on the voyage he contracted a bad cold which 
had fatal results. He died in hospital at Salis- 
bury, 17 January 19^7, his comrades testifying 
to their respect for his personal character and 
his work. 

COWIE, JOHN WINCHESTER : Sea- 
man, Hawke Battalion, R.N.D. ; son of 

George Cowie, fisherman ; born Buckie, 5 July

career, the call for service came, he recognized 
that 1 1 lis was his work, and volunteered at once. 

Enlisting in the 
R===SJ=SEj^=SjjSI Hawke Battalion 
Royal Naval Division, 
8 October 1914, he 
served at Gallipoli un- 
til our forces were 
withdrawn, then pro- 
ceeded with his Bat- 
talion to France, took 
part in the great charge 
at Beaucourt in No- 
vember 1 916, when he 
was slightly wounded, 
and was killed in action 
at Beaumont Hamel, 22 January 191 7. One 
who knew him well writes : " He volunteered at 
once and in that and in his service acted with 
cheerful alacrity and unselfish courage ". 

HORNE, ALEXANDER ROBERTSON : 

Lance-Corporal, 4th Battalion Gordon 

Highlanders ; son 

of Alexander B. 
Home, druggist ; born 
Aberdeen, 22 June 
1887; educated Ash- 
ley Road Public School 
and Robert Gordon's 
College, Aberdeen ; 
Bronze Medallist, 
Gordon's College, 
1901 ; graduated M. A., 
1909. For five and a 
half years he taught as 
an assistant master in 
Peterhead Academy, then at the Middle School, 
Aberdeen, and later at Bishopbriggs and Chry- 
ston Schools, Glasgow. 

During his University days Home was an en- 
thusiastic member of the Gordons. In July 1916 
he rejoined his old regiment, and in October of 
that year went to France. Towards the end of 
December he was wounded and sent to Eng- 
land, where he died in Duston Military Hospital 
on 22 January 191 7. 

There are few men whose place in their pro- 
fession would be more difficult to fill. To 
Home teaching was something more than a 




profession, education was a high ideal and the 
study of child nature a worthy life's work. 
From his schooldays onwards he was thorough, 
painstaking and methodical to a most unusual 
degree, whilst his cheery wit and his unfailing 
good nature and kindliness endeared him to a 
lartre circle. 



ELLIS : Captain, 

son of James Milne ; 




MILNE, JOSEPH 
R.A.M.C. ; D.S.O. ; 

born Fraserburgh, j;o 
September 1868 ; edu- 
cated at Aberdeen 
Grammar School ; 
graduated M. A., 1888; 
M.B. (Hon. Dist), 
1 891; M.D. (Com.), 
1894. 

When war broke out 
Ellis Milne was in a 
large practice in Aber- 
deen. Commissioned 
Lieutenant, 25 April 
1 91 5, he left next day 
for France with the Highland Casualty Clear- 
ing Station. On 1 November 191 5 he became 
Medical Officer to the i/8th Battalion (Irish) of 
the King's Liverpool Regiment. In Octo- 
ber 1 916 he was awarded the Distinguished 
Service Order for his work in the Battle of the 
Somme — " For conspicuous gallantry and de- 
votion to duty during operations. He has 
repeatedly tended the wounded under heavy 
shell fire, and has shown himself utterly regard- 
less of personal safety." In Sir Douglas Haig's 
New Year's Dispatch 19 17 he was mentioned 
for work done after receiving the D.S.O. He 
was killed in action near Ypres on 22 February 

Joseph Ellis Milne had a dynamic personality. 
An iron will endowed him with great powers of 
physical and mental endurance. A high con- 
ception of duty was united to a complete in- 
difference to personal danger, a heart in 
sympathy with each Irish lad brought him the 
love of all in the Battalion. He met his death 
by rifle bullet in the trenches. Such a daunt- 
less spirit, no matter his tale of years, could 
not have worked happily outside the Great 
War.

MACDONALD, HECTOR ROBERT: 

Lieutenant, 3rd Battalion Seaforth High- 
landers (Ross-shire 
Buffs, the Duke 
of Albany's); son 

of Ewen Macdonald ; 
born Aberdeen, 2 1 
July 1894. He was 
educated at the Aber- 
deen Grammar School, 
and passed on to King's 
College in 1912. 
There he specialized 
in History, reading 
for Honours, with a 
view to studying at 
Cambridge later. Among the men of his year 
he was known as a keen athlete, excelling es- 
pecially in running, boxing and hockey ; while 
his wide interests and knowledge of very varied 
subjects made him many friends. 

Commissioned to the Territorial A.S.C. in 
1 91 3, he was mobilized with the Highland 
Division, and served from the outbreak of war. 
In April 19 15 he entered Sandhurst, and in 
August of the same year was gazetted to the 
Seaforth Highlanders. After nine months' 
home service he was sent to Mesopotamia, 
where he became bombing officer to his Battalion. 
He was killed at Sanna-i-yat on 22 Febru- 
ary 191 7, during a bombing attack organized 
and carried out by him. In a letter from his 
Colonel the highest testimony is given to his 
efficiency, bravery and thoroughness. It was 
the success of that attack, to which he had so 
greatly contributed, that made possible the tak- 
ing of Kut-el-Amara, and the further advance 
up the river. In him the Battalion lost a gallant 
and skilful officer, and his comrades a charming 
companion. 

REID, WILLIAM GEORGE : 2nd Lieuten- 
ant, 3rd Battalion Scottish Rifles; 

son of William Reid, carpenter ; born Aber- 
chirder, 27 November 1889; educated Gordon 
Schools, Huntly ; entered Aberdeen University 
as 4th Bursar, 1907 ; graduated M.A. with First 
Class Honours in Classics and Dr. Black Prize 
in Latin, 191 1 ; third assistant in Latin, 191 1- 
12 ; Classical Exhibitioner of Oriel College, Ox- 




ford, 1912-15 ; Second Class Classical Modera- 
tions, Oxford, 1913, and Second Class Literse 
Humaniores, Oxford, 
1915 (B.A.) ; Bishop 
Fraser Post - graduate 
Scholar, Oriel College, 
Oxford, 1915 - 16 ; 
second assistant in 
Greek, Aberdeen Uni- 
versity, 191 5-1 6. Reid 
excelled in all branches 
of study, but his true 
bent was towards Eng- 
lish and Classics. His 
outstanding ability- 
showed itself not only 

in his record at Aberdeen and at Oxford, but 
in his contributions to " Alma Mater " which, 
whether in poetry or in prose, were noticeable 
for excellence of style and beauty of thought. 
And yet he was only at the beginning — what he 
had done " was still but earnest of the things 
that he would do ". 

The war came, turning students into soldiers, 
and Reid threw himself with the keenest en- 
thusiasm into the activities of the Oxford O.T.C. 
Though still handicapped by the effects of an 
illness in his student days, he succeeded in 19 16 
in getting a commission in the 3rd Scottish 
Rifles, and towards the end of that year went to 
France, where he fell in action on 22 March 
1917. 

SIM, JOHN MOIR : Lieutenant, Royal 
Flying Corps ; son of Robert Sim, clothier ; 
born Cairnie, Aber- 
deenshire ; 2 1 March 
1894 ; educated For- 
dyce Academy ; student 
in Arts, 191 3-14. 

Joining " U " Com- 
pany of the 4th Gordons 
in March 19 14, he was 
mobilized with them 
and trained at Bedford ; 
arriving in France with 
the Battalion in Febru- 
ary 1 91 5 he served as 
a sniper till 25 Septem- 
ber, when he was wounded at Loos. He was 




5i 



IN MEM OKI AM. 



gazetted, 22 November 191 5, and after further 
training at Hawick he crossed again to France, 
June 1916, and served there with the 6th Gordons. 
He was again wounded and gassed in the Somme 
offensive of July 19 16. Undaunted by all he 
had gone through Sim joined the R.F.C. in 
October 191 6, and had qualified as an observer 
just six weeks before his death. On 19 March 
191 7 he was mentioned in dispatches. A few 
days later, 25 March 191 7, he was killed in 
action at Beugny along with his pilot, after fight- 
ing their way back through a long part of Ger- 
many with important information. Sim was 
good to live with and the man with whom to 
share a billet, his cheerfulness never failed him 
and was proof against all the untoward incidents 
of his military career. 

SIMPSON, ROBERT MACKIE : Private, 
6th Battalion Black Watch ; son of Robert 
Simpson, merchant; 
born Keig, Aberdeen- 
shire, 17 April 1896 ; 
educated at the local 
Public School and Gor- 
don's College, Aber- 
deen ; student in Arts, 

1914-15- 

He joined the 3/2nd 
Scottish Horse in No- 
vember 1915, and was 
in training at Dunkeld 
until January 191 7, 
when he was sent to 
France and drafted into the i/6th Black Watch. 
After only three months abroad he met his 
death on 1 April 191 7, being killed by the 
bursting of a shell which struck the house in 
which he was billeted at Maroeuil, near Arras. 
To all who knew him he was "Bobbie," the 
familiar name proving his popularity, as school 
boy, student and soldier. 

ANDERSON, WILLIAM BRUCE: 2nd 
Lieutenant, 5th Battalion Gordon High- 
landers ; M.C. ; son of William N. Anderson, 
mason; born Aberdeen, 17 June 1888; edu- 
cated at Robert Gordon's College ; student in 
Arts and Agricultural Science ; graduated M.A., 
191 1. Before finishing his B.Sc. (Agr.) he went 





to Canada with his family. He was engaged 
in teaching and was studying Science at Toronto 
up till 1914 when he 
returned to Aberdeen 
University and com- 
pleted a winter session 
in Honours Classics 
course, as he found 
Classics would lead to 
a better future for him 
in Canada. 

Anderson enlisted in 
the 4th Gordons, 16 
April 19 1 5, and was 
commissioned 2nd 
Lieutenant, 5 th Gor- 
don Highlanders, n September 1915, with 
which Battalion he saw much service and dis- 
tinguished himself. He received the Military 
Cross, 13 November 1916, for great bravery in 
leading his men after all the other officers were 
either killed or wounded, and in capturing 170 
Germans. He was killed in action at Arras, 7 
April 191 7. His loss was a very severe one to 
his Battalion, for he had the soldiering instincts 
in a marked degree and was certain of promo- 
tion. 

HALL, HERBERT JOHN: 2nd Lieu- 
tenant, 5th Battalion Gordon Highland- 
ers ; son of James 
Hall ; born St. Fergus, 
25 October 1886;

Public School and 
Peterhead Academy. 
After leaving school 
he spent five years 
in the Pitfour Es- 
tates Office. He en-

Department in 1 907, but 
after one session at Col- 
lege returned to help 

his widowed mother with the farm, which he 
continued to manage till the outbreak of war. 

Before the war Hall had served for several 
years in the 5 th Gordons, and re-enlisted after 
the outbreak of hostilities serving for two years 
at home as a Quartermaster-Sergeant. He

proceeded to France in January 191 7. He was 
killed at Arras on 7 April 191 7.

Minister at Broughty Ferry where his work was 
much appreciated. 

In 1915 he received a commission as Lieu-

went through the entire Somme offensive, was 
promoted to a Captaincy and received the 
Military Cross in recognition of his conspicuous 
service on 22 September 19 16, the official 
record stating : " He showed great courage 
and skill in reconnaissance work. Later he 
carried out a daring raid on an enemy trench, 
with great courage and determination until re- 
lieved, and rendered great assistance in getting 
back the wounded men." "He was a trusted 
and beloved leader," so a fellow-officer testifies, 
"ever showing a fearless example to his men." 
He was killed in action at Arras on 9 April 191 7. 

HAY, ALFRED CHALMERS: 2nd Lieu- 
tenant, 3rd Battalion Gordon Highland-

when at home, ob- 
tained permission from 
the India Office to join 
the Army for the period

NICOL, HENRY DURWARD : Private, 
10th Battalion Gordon Highlanders; son 

of James Nicol, 
gardener ; born Logie- 
Coldstone, Aberdeen- 
shire, 22 September 
1896; educated Kem- 
nay H.G. School ; 
having gained a Bur- 
sary he came up to the 
University ; student in 
Arts, 19 1 5-1 6. 

At the close of the 
winter session he 
joined the Army, en- 
listing, as was natural. 
in the 4th Gordon Highlanders. After training 
he crossed to France where he served with the 
4th and later the 8/ioth Battalion ; he had only 
been on active service for a year when he fell in

keen delight in games and sport, and had already 
shown himself endowed with intellectual gifts.

George Reid, timber merchant ; born Banff, 3 
June 1 89 1 ; educated Banff and Fordyce Aca-

1 9 14 to 19 February 
1 91 5,. and in France 
and Flanders in those 
grim days of 191 5 and 

191 6. He was twice

1915 at Hill 60 whilst 
bringing in a wounded 
comrade after another 
man had been killed 
in the attempt, and

tember 1915. On his 
return to the Battalion 

he acted as Medical Orderly until he was gazetted 
to the 6th Gordon Highlanders, 22 February 

191 7. His career as an officer was very brief, 
for he was killed in action at Arras, 9 April 191 7. 

" Joe " Reid, as we always called him, was an 
exceptionally fine soldier and a very brave man, 
endowed with the quiet courage and determina- 
tion that invariably accompany the finer spirit, 
whilst only those who called him friend could 
rightly appraise that friendship. 

RAE, JAMES : Lieutenant, R.A.M.C. ; 

son of William Rae, advocate; born Aberdeen, 
13 December 1884; 
educated Aberdeen 
Grammar School, Uni- 
versity College, Lon-

(Aberd.), 1904; M.B., 
1909, and M.D. (Com- 
mend.), 191 1. When 
a student he became 
Editor of "Alma 
Mater". He was a 
great reader, had a 
most retentive memory, 
and developed literary 

talent of no mean order. His thesis for M.D. 
degree was a somewhat unusual one — "An In- 
vestigation into the Causes of Death of the Kings 
of England from William I to William IV," and 
was the result of his researches in the by-paths 
of literature. He also contributed many articles 
to the "Lancet," the "British Medical Journal," 




54

and other medical publications. He held various 
posts as Medical Officer in London, Cheltenham 
and Birmingham. »%...."^ ..__.t _..„ 1 

In 1915 Rae took a temporary commission 
as Lieutenant in the R.A.M.C., and he was 
appointed Registrar to the Connaught Hospital, 
Aldershot. Later he was ordered to Egypt on 
military service, and it was' while he was on the 
voyage thither that his career was brought to a 
premature close by the torpedoing of the troop- 
ship " Arcadian " in the Eastern Mediterranean 
on 15 April 191 7. 

RIDDEL, JOHN DEAN : 2nd Lieutenant, 
5th Battalion Gordon Highlanders ; son 

ofGeorge Riddel, 
farmer, Kininmonth, 
Longside ; born New 
Deer, 8 September 
1893 ; educated Kinin-

4th Reserve Battalion and posted to the 5 th Bat- 
talion Gordon Highlanders. In January 191 7 he 
left for France, where he served till his death on 
17 April 1 91 7 from wounds received in action 
near Arras ten days previously. Of a quiet, 
kindly disposition, he endeared himself to his 
friends, who hold his memory in affectionate 
regard. Young as he was, he had already 
mapped out for himself a definite career of self- 
sacrifice and Christian endeavour, but he willingly 
gave up all, to follow what he so clearly saw to 
be the path of duty.

5th Battalion Royal Scots Fusiliers; 

D.C.M. ; son of James S. Pirie ; born Duffus,

he was a keen shot and 
competed at B i s 1 e y 
and Darnley on 
several occasions. He 
was mobilized as 
Colour-Sergeant at the 
outbreak of war and 

was stationed at Stirling until May 191 5, when 
the Battalion was sent to Gallipoli. For his dis- 
tinguished services he was awarded the D.C.M. 
in July 19 1 5, and promoted Lieutenant in the 
Field. He was also mentioned in Sir Ian Hamil- 
ton's Gallipoli dispatch. After the evacuation 
of Gallipoli, Pirie went to Egypt and Pales- 
tine where again his valuable services were re- 
cognized by two mentions in dispatches. He 
rose to the rank of Captain and was killed in 
action at the Battle of Gaza on 19 April 
1917.

graduated M.B., 1905, 
having passed his Pro- 
fessional Examination 
in Anatomy with 
Distinction. He 
was in practice for 
some time in Shetland, 
later Methlick, then 

went to Jamaica where he held a Government 
appointment. 

On the outbreak of war Russell returned to 
this country, was commissioned in the R.A.M.C, 
and for some months served as Medical Officer

to the Connaught Hospital, Aldershot. As 
Regimental Doctor, nth Service Battalion 
Royal Warwickshire Regiment, he went through 
the heavy fighting at Contalmaison and Thiepval 
and latterly served in No. 10 General Hospital, 
Rouen. He died while on service, 22 April 
1917. 



BRUCE, ANDREW MITCHELL: Private, 
5th Battalion Gordon Highlanders; 

son of Alexander Bruce, 
Mill of Allathan, Mon- 
quhitter ; born New 
Deer, 30 March 1877 ; 
educated New Deer 
Central School. He 
entered on his profes- 
sional career as a pupil 
teacher at Knaven 
Public School early in 
1893, and two years later 
was transferred to New 
Deer Public School. 
At the end of his train- 
ing as a pupil teacher he entered the Church of 
Scotland Training College with a Bursary and 
continued his studies until he graduated M.A. 
in 1908. He was first appointed to the Inver- 
ness Academy and later to the Central School, 
Inverness. 

Although Bruce was almost beyond military 
age and suffered always from the effects of an 
illness which had delayed his studies, he en- 
listed under the Derby Scheme and went into 
training at Ripon with the 3/5th Gordons in 
April 1916. He was transferred to the Signal 
Section, proceeded to France in March 191 7, 
and was reported "missing" on 23 April 1917. 
A comrade reported that he had fallen in action 
at Roeux on that date and this was confirmed 
later. 

Both as teacher and as friend Bruce was 
valued by all who came in contact with him. 
His keen interest in educational matters, his 
sincerity and conscientious thoroughness had 
much influence on his pupils. A brass tablet 
in the Hall of the School, and the " Bruce 
Medal " founded in his memory, testify to the 
esteem in which he was held. 




MACBETH, WILLIAM DAVID : 2nd 
Lieutenant, 6th Battalion Black Watch ; 

son of Sergeant John 
MacBeth, late Bombay 
Light Infantry ; born 
Dornoch, 9 October 
1884 ; educated Dor- 
noch Academy ; grad- 
uated M.A., 1909 ; 
taught in Blackness 
Public School, had 
travelled in France, 
Belgium, Holland, 
Germany and Switzer- 
land, in itself a liberal 
education readily as- 
similated by his Celtic nature ; when war broke 
out he was English Master at the High School, 
Dundee. 

Soldiering instincts were strong in him, and as 
a lad MacBeth had joined the 1st S.H.R.V., 
now 5 th Seaforth Highlanders (T.F.), but resigned 
some years before the war. He was com- 
missioned 3 March 191 5, being posted to the 
Royal Highlanders (The Black Watch), and had 
served for some time on the Western Front when 
he fell in action during the Battle of Arras, 23 
April 191 7. He was described as a "resource- 
ful and capable officer," of whom his Colonel 
wrote : " He was killed when gallantly leading 
his men in the advance upon the Gavarelle Road, 
just north of the chemical works, on 23 April; 
he fell bravely leading his men after the capture 
of the German first line during the advance to 
the second line. He was a splendid and most 
valuable officer, and one the army can ill 
afford to lose." 

ROSS, REV. SIMON FRASER : Lieu- 
tenant, 4th Battalion Gordon High- 
landers ; son of Simon Ross, farmer, Alves ; 
born Alves, 24 September 1887 ; graduated M.A. 
with Honours in Classics, 191 1; studied at 
Aberdeen U.F. College, 1911-14; at the out- 
break of war was in charge of a mission in 
Canada. He was licensed as a probationer by 
the U.F. Presbytery of Elgin in 19 15, and had 
already given promise that he would prove a 
preacher of no mean order. 

Ross enlisted in November 1914, retaining 



56 



IN MEM OKI AM. 




the rank of Sergeant which he had held in the 
Territorial Force. In April 1 9 1 5 he was com- 
missioned as 2nd Lieu- 
tenant, and was made 
full Lieutenant on the 
field on 23 July 1916, 
when he had specially 
distinguished himself in 
one of the Somme 
battles and been se- 
verely wounded. He 
was killed in action 
near Arras on 23 April 
1917. Before going to 
the Front and also dur- 
ing his period of con- 
valescence Ross rendered valuable service in 
training recruits. Alike as a soldier and a 
student he was energetic and enthusiastic, and 
was held in the highest esteem by all who knew 
him. 

SUTHERLAND, ALEXANDER GEORGE : 

Private, 4th Battalion Gordon High- 
landers ; son of 
George Sutherland, 
boot merchant ; born 
Buckie, 9 January 
1886; educated Buckie 
Public School ; passed 
to Aberdeen Univer- 
sity in i903as 10th Bur- 
sar; graduated M.A. 
(First Class Highest 
Distinction, Greek 
History), 1907 ; Simp- 
son Greek Prize, Sea- 
field Latin Prize, 
Liddel Prize, Ferguson and Fullerton Scholar- 
ships ; entered Trinity College, Cambridge, as 
Classical Sizar— becoming later Classical Scholar ; 
First Class, Part I, Classical Tripos ; Distinction 
in Ancient History, Part II. " Few men so 
able," wrote the Professor of Greek in Aberdeen, 
"have ever attended the University." He 
accepted the post of Examiner in the Ex- 
chequer Audit at Warri, East Africa, a post 
ludicrously disproportionate to his abilities. 

Although in bad health when war broke out, 
Sutherland enlisted at the earliest possible 




moment and sailed for home in February 1915. 
After training he went to the Front with the 
2/4th Gordon Highlanders. When ordered home 
on sick leave for the second time in 191 7, he 
begged permission to stay for the big push. It 
was in it that he met his death, being reported 
missing after the attack on 23 April 191 7. 

An utter absence of self-seeking characterized 
Sutherland — a modesty and humility which made 
him amazingly blind to his own brilliant powers. 
Of a fine and subtle intellect, with literary 
taste and knowledge far beyond the common, he 
could never see himself in the light by which 
others saw him ; and gave his life to his country 
with the same willingness of sacrifice that had 
marked all his actions. 

URQUHART, JOHN S. : Captain, 14th Bat- 
talion Argyll and Sutherland Highland- 
ers ; son of Duncan 
Urquhart, farmer ; born 
Drumnadrochit, Inver- 
ness-shire, 23 January 
1885 ; educated at the 
local school ; matricu- 
lated at Aberdeen Uni- 
versity 1903 ; graduated 
M.A., 1906. He also 
attended the United 
Free Church Training 
College concurrently 
with the University, and 
acted for one year as 

Editor of the College magazine. After graduat- 
ing he taught in Edinburgh for a short time ; he 
then received a post in Wick Academy where he 
remained for three years, and thereafter spent 
five very useful years as English Master in 
Gordon Schools, Huntly. In August 19 14 he 
was appointed to a similar post in Ardrossan 
Academy. 

Urquhart joined up before the end of 
19 14, receiving a commission in the Argyll and 
Sutherland Highlanders. He proceeded to 
France in June 191 6 and was soon recognized 
as an efficient officer. Coming successfully 
through the great attack at Bapaume he was 
killed by a stray bullet the following morning, 
24 April 191 7, while talking to a brother officer. 
He was an inspiring teacher and a great favourite

with his pupils. Generosity, kindliness and 
fidelity were the outstanding characteristics of 
this very fine Highlander. 

PROFEIT, LEOPOLD : Captain, 8th Bat- 
talion Shropshire Light Infantry ; son of 

Dr. Alexander Profeit, 
Commissioner to 
Queen Victoria at Bal- 
moral ; born Crathie, 
7 April 1877 ; edu- 
cated privately ; grad- 
uated M.A., 1896. 
After graduation he 
went on the stage, 
playing with Sir John- 
ston Forbes-Robertson 
and the late James 
y^^^""^^^^^^ _, Welch. 

At the outbreak of 
war Profeit was home on holiday from America, 
where he had been for some years, and he at 
once joined the University and Public Schools 
Corps. In December 1 9 1 4 he was commissioned 
in the Shropshire Light Infantry and about a 
year later was sent to France. Afterwards he 
was transferred to the Salonika Front, where he 
fell near Lake Doiran on 25 April 1917. The 
attack in which he met his death had been 
planned by himself and, though fatal to its 
leader, was successful in attaining its objective. 

EWEN, EDGAR HUNTER: Lieutenant 

(Acting Captain), 5th Battalion Royal 

Scots Fusiliers; son 

of George Ewen, Tang- 
Ian ; born Methlick, 27 
December 1880 ; edu- 
cated at Methlick Pub- 
lic School, Gordon's 
College and Aberdeen 
University ; graduated 
M.A. in 1904 ; taught 
in Invergordon Aca- 
demy and was Science 
Master in Troon 
Academy when war 
broke out. 
He was a member of the University Company 




as an undergraduate and re-enlisted in the 
Gordons in 191 5. Ewen, like the rest of his 
family, was an expert shot and was sent to a 
musketry school to qualify as an instructor. 
After gaining his certificate he was transferred to 
the 5th (Res.) Royal Scots Fusiliers with com- 
missioned rank and was appointed Battalion 
Instructor of Musketry. After the 5th Reserve 
was amalgamated with the 4th Reserve R.S.F., 
Ewen assumed command of one of the train- 
ing companies. He was accidentally killed in 
Catterick Camp on 1 May 191 7. 

How highly Lieutenant Ewen's services were 
esteemed may be gathered from the following 
letter from his Commanding Officer : " I well 
remember when he came to me at Ayr Race 
Course. He had been highly spoken of by his 
former Commanding Officer and I was much in 
need of effective help. I at once saw that I had 
got it, and during the all too short time we were 
together my regard for him steadily increased. 
I could not have had a more faithful officer, or 
one who was more concerned to do his very 
best for the regiment." 

MERSON, REV. MARSHALL: Lieu- 
tenant, 5th Battalion Royal Scots Fusiliers ; 

son of George Merson, 
fishcurer ; born Buckie, 
3 August 1889 ; edu- 
cated there and at 
Aberdeen University, 
where he graduated 
M.A. in 191 2. There- 
after he took a highly 
creditable place in the 
classes of the Divinity 
Hall of the University. 
During his Divinity 
course he gave much 
valued assistance to the 

ministers of Buckie and of Holburn Church, 
Aberdeen ; and his summer vacations were 
occupied with work as student missionary in the 
island of Swona. 

At the close of his last session of Divinity in 
the spring of 19 15, he enlisted promptly as a 
Private in the 4th Battalion Gordon Highlanders, 
and in the following August received a com- 
mission as Lieutenant in the Royal Scots. Alike 




58 



IN MEMO RI AM. 



on garrison duty at home and on active service 
in France, Merson showed much ability and de- 
votion and received from his CO. the testimony 
that he had "proved himself to be an extra- 
ordinarily good officer ". He was killed in 
action in France, 3 May 191 7. 



TAYLOR, JOHN 

4th Battalion East 




OGILYIE : Captain, 
Kent Regiment (The 
Buffs) ; son of John 
O. Taylor, shipmaster; 
born Aberdeen, 29 
November 1884. 
Educated at the Aber- 
deen Grammar School 
and Aberdeen Uni- 
versity. He graduated 
M.A. in 1910, and 
became English Master 
in Basingstoke Gram- 
mar School. 

In April 19 1 5 he 
joined the Inns of 
Court O.T.C., from which he received a com- 
mission in The Buffs. In October 1916 he 
went to the Front with his Battalion, and was 
attached to the Middlesex Regiment. He was 
killed in action at Monchy-le-Preux, on 3 May 
191 7. Popular with his fellow-officers and 
beloved by his men, his death was felt as an 
irreparable loss. He was a man of fine literary 
taste, and in his College days a great supporter 
of a dramatic club for the study of Shakespeare. 
The breadth of his interests and sympathies, the 
wider outlook which much travel in France and 
Germany had given him, made his friendship a 
privilege and a delight. 

THOMSON, HENRY WILKIESON : 

Lance-Corporal, 46th Saskatchewan 
(Canadian) Regiment; son of John W. 
Thomson, schoolmaster; born Turriff, 13 June 
1885. Educated at Turriff; graduated M.A. 
with Classical Honours in 1907. He was a 
schoolmaster at Dufftown and Huntly ; but be- 
fore long left this country for Canada. 

In October 19 15 he crossed to England with 
the Canadian contingent, and soon after went 
to France. He was wounded the following 
year, and killed in action, 5 May 191 7. Some- 



one has written of Thomson as " the Scholar 
Gipsy of our Northern University ". He loved 
life more than books, 
and books as they 
illustrated life. A 
good companion and 
a good friend, full of 
gay high spirits and 
quaint humour, a con- 
stitutional heretic and 
lover of freedom, he 
could not cramp his 
mind in the fetters of 
conventional school 
teaching. His passion 
for the open country of 

adventure drove him out to look for life in the 
woods and along the great river-ways of Canada. 
There he mixed with men of all sorts and still 
found life "a changeful and a cheerful page"; until 
at the outbreak of war he heard the summons of 
the greatest adventure of all — an adventure which 
was duty and discipline as well ; and to which he 
gave his life with that gaiety of courage which 
had been his always. 




ALEXANDER :3 2nd 
Garrison Artillery ; 



MASSON, JAMES 
Lieutenant, Royal 

son of James Masson, 
fisherman; born 
Fraserburgh, 20 Octo- 
ber 1 89 1 ; educated 
Fraserburgh Academy. 
He came to Aberdeen 
with a splendid record 
in 1909, and graduated 
M.A. with First Class 
Honours in Classics, 
191 3. Shortly after- 
wards he was appointed 
Classical Master at 
Thurso Academy. 

Enlisting in April 19 16 he joined the R.G.A. T 
serving at Edinburgh, London, AVinchester. 
Before going to France he received his com- 
mission. He was only a short time in France 
when he was fatally wounded near Arras, 8 
May 191 7. 

Some men at the very outset of their career 
leap into prominence and live in the limelight

IN MEMO RI AM. 



constantly during the years at the 'Varsity. 
But Masson was not of that type. There was 
a shy reserve about him which prevented him 
from getting widely known, but those who 
were favoured with his friendship were im- 
pressed by his quiet strength which gave a 
suggestion of unrealized capabilities. No one 
could say that he was a " minus " man, but 
he never obtruded himself and his conscienti- 
ousness was never paraded. On looking back 
to those years that were so rich in companion- 
ship, one sees how much of Masson's character 
was due to his simple piety and to a deep 
foundation of nobility. 

WEBSTER, GEORGE PARK : Private, 
1st Battalion Gordon Highlanders; 

son of William Web- 
ster, engineer ; born 
Aberdeen, 22 January 
1898 ; educated Gor- 
don's College, which 
he left in June 1915, 
having gained the 
Town Council Gold 
Medal as Dux on the 
Classical side ; took 
5th place in the Bur- 
sary Competition, win- 
ning a Dingwall Bur- 
sary ; matriculated, 
October 191 5, and spent one year as a student 
in Arts. 

Webster enlisted in the 3rd Battalion Gordon 
Highlanders, n July 1916, and after under- 
going a period of training in Aberdeen was 
sent to France in March 191 7, attached to the 

I st Battalion. He was reported missing on 

I I May and was later officially stated to have 
been killed on that date, 11 May 191 7. A 
young lad of sterling character and undoubted 
ability he gave every indication of a future of 
much distinction. 

GILMOUR, WILLIEJOHN OBERLIN : 
2nd Lieutenant, Scottish Horse; 

son of William Gilmour, B.A., headmaster of 
Cookney School ; born at Armadale, Sutherland, 
30 May 1884 ; received his earlier education at 
various schools under his father. Eventually as 





a First Bursar for the County of Aberdeen, he 
proceeded to Gordon's College and then to 
Aberdeen University 
where he graduated 
M.A. in 191 1. He 
was Assistant Master 
in Paisley Grammar 
School for a time, and 
then obtained an ap- 
pointment in L e i t h 
Academy where he was 
employed on the out- 
break of war. 

He enlisted as a 
trooper in the Scottish 
Horse on 7 August 
1914, though offered a commission in the 
Gordon Highlanders. His old connection with 
the Scottish Horse, as a member of the Uni- 
versity troop in his student days, was the de- 
ciding factor in this choice. He served with 
the Scottish Horse at home, was sent to Galli- 
poli as Quartermaster-Sergeant with the 1st 
Brigade, and rendered such valuable service 
that he was recommended for a commission. 
On the evacuation of Gallipoli he proceeded 
with his regiment to Egypt, where as 2nd 
Lieutenant he was for some time attached to 
the Lanarkshire Yeomanry. Rejoining his 
regiment, he went to Salonika in October 
19 16, acting as Adjutant on one of the trans- 
ports. Later he was attached to the South 
Notts Hussars for cavalry work, and served 
with this regiment until he was killed on patrol 
duty, near Kakaraska, on the Struma Front, 15 
May 191 7. Lieutenant Gilmour's death was 
a great blow to his numerous friends and 
comrades-in-arms, as his cheerful and obliging 
disposition had made him a general favourite 
both in school and on service. 

KENNEDY, EDWIN ALFRED: Lieu- 
tenant, 6th Battalion Seaforth Highland- 
ers ; son of Robert Kennedy, river superinten- 
dent ; born at Banff, 20 November 1895 ; he 
was educated at Banff Academy where he made 
an excellent record, being Dux of the school in 
his final year ; matriculated in Arts at Aberdeen 
University in October 19 14. 

He enlisted in the 4th Gordon Highlanders 



60 



IN MEMO.RIAM. 




in March 191 5, and received a commission 
in the 6th Seaforth Highlanders in July of 
the same year. After 
training at Aberdeen, 
Elgin and Ripon, 
Kennedy proceeded to 
France in January 
1 9 1 6, and went through 
some of the hardest 
fighting of the war. 
Except for a short in- 
terval when he was 
invalided home, he re- 
mained on active ser- 
vice until he was killed 
in action near Arras on 
15 May 191 7. Both he and his brother, Captain 
John Kennedy, proved themselves gallant sol- 
diers, fulfilling the promise of their school and 
College life. 

SMITH, FRANCIS JOHNSTON : 2nd 
Lieutenant, 7th Battalion Gordon High- 
landers ; M.C. ; son 

of Charles C. Smith, 
compositor; born 
Aberdeen, 25 Novem- 
ber 1883 ; educated 
Robert Gordon's Col- 
lege ; student in Law, 
1906-08 ; served with 
the firm of Messrs. 
L. Mackinnon &: Son, 
Advocates, Aberdeen. 
On 25 January 1915 
he enlisted in the 4th 
Gordons, was later 
attached to the 6th Battalion, and received 
his training at Aberdeen and Ripon. He at- 
tained commissioned rank on 5 August 1916, 
and was posted to the 7 th Gordons, but served 
in France with the 6th Battalion. Smith was 
awarded the Military Cross in March 19 17. 
On 16 May 191 7 he fell in action near Arras, 
leading his men in a counter attack which 
succeeded in re-establishing the position of the 
Battalion. As a student of Law, Smith gave 
promise of a brilliant future, his shrewdness, 
tenacity and keenness in debate marked him 
as one who would go far in his profession ; and 



the determination which he displayed in his en- 
deavour to join the Army after a serious illness, 
characterized the whole of his civil and military 
career.

Alexander Cruden, 
merchant ; born New 
Pitsligo, 12 December 
1897 ; educated Gor- 
don's College ; student 
in Arts, 1915-16. 

In July 191 6 he 
enlisted in the 4th 
Battalion Gordon 
Highlanders, and after 
training at Ripon 
went to France, Feb- 
ruary 191 7. He was 
killed in action at 
Roeux, 23 May 191 7. 



BURNETT, IAN ALISTAIR KENDALL : 
Captain, 3rd Battalion East Lancashire 
Regiment ; son of W. 

Kendall Burnett, advo- 
cate ; born Aberdeen, 
20 June 1885 ; educated 
Aberdeen Grammar 
School; graduated 
M.A., 1907 ; took First 
Class Honours, Modern 
Languages, 1908 ; 
appointed Assistant 
Librarian, Royal Scot- 
tish Museum, 1909 ; 
held a similar post in 
the British Museum 
from 1 910 until the outbreak of war. 

Burnett was a member of the Inns of Court 
O.T.C. and was mobilized, August 19 14. In 
December he was gazetted to the 3rd Battalion 
East Lancashire Regiment, in April 1915 went 
to France, and saw much heavy fighting, being 
gassed once and wounded twice. In January 
19 1 7 he was promoted Captain, and four months 
later was killed while leading a night attack, 31 
May 191 7. 

To think of I. A. K. B. is to recall a hundred

characteristic episodes in which the humours and 
contradictions of his wayward spirit are en- 
shrined. But the central unity from which 
these bewildering contradictions radiated baffles 
the enquirer, as indeed it seemed to baffle the 
possessor himself, for ever in pursuit of his own 
reality. In that final synthesis strange and alien 
elements coalesced, the tender and mocking 
irony of the Abbe Coignard did not disdain 
communion with the austerity of Calvin, the 
freshness of the child met the experience of the 
sage, and the scoffer embraced the votary. 
And, like a radiant vestment to his inward 
riches, none could fail to be struck by his 
unique courtesy. This quality alone, were but 
all its implications apprehended, might be truly 
said to symbolize and epitoniize his whole 
nature. " O anima cortese ! " is epitaph enough. 

SMITH, WILLIAM ALEXANDER : Lieu- 
tenant, R.A.M.C. ; son of William Smith, 
miller ; born Cruden, 
20 May 1880 ; edu- 
cated Gordon's Col- 
lege ; graduated M.B., 
1904. After gradua- 
tion he held posts in 
the North Riding In- 
firmary, Middles- 
brough, and at 
Queen's Square, 
Lancaster. Later he 
was in a country prac- 
tice at Wesham in 
Lancashire where he 
was a very popular and successful practitioner. 

In January 191 7 Smith was commissioned in 
the R.A.M.C. and left for France a month later. 
After serving at the Front for four months he was 
killed in action at Farbus near Arras on 3 June 
1917. 

ANDERSON, WILLIAM: 2nd Lieu- 
tenant, 1st Battalion Lovat's Scouts ; 

son of William Anderson, Saphock, Oldmeldrum ; 
born Fyvie, 1893. 

William Anderson, who matriculated in Agri- 
culture in 1 9 10 and gained the University Di- 
ploma in Agriculture two years later, was one 
of the best known and most popular students of 





his day. Coming of a famous family of agri- 
culturists and Shorthorn breeders, he had an 
intense 'interest in all 
things pertaining to 
the farm and, while 
studying at the Uni- 
versity took a high 
place in agricultural 
classes, besides gain- 
ing medals at stock- 
judging competitions. 
He was also a promi- 
nent figure in the 
social and athletic life 
of the University. 

Previous to joining 
the colours he was farming at East Fingask, Old- 
meldrum, a fine farm neighbouring his father's 
famous farm, Saphock, and here he was success- 
fully applying his practical and scientific know- 
ledge. 

He enlisted in the Scottish Horse in 191 5 and 
the following year got a commission in Lovat's 
Scouts. He went to France in 1916 and was 
killed at Arras on 4 June 1917, at the age of 24. 

ROSS, FINLAY GEORGE MACLEOD : 
Captain, R.A.M.C. ; son of Finlay M. Ross, 
commercial traveller ; 
born Aberdeen, 3 1 
October 1886 ; edu- 
cated Aberdeen 
Grammar School ; 
matriculated 1904; 
graduated M.B., 1 909 ; 
Assistant, Murray's 
Asylum, Perth ; later 
went to India as Medi- 
cal Officer on S.S. 
" City of Paris ". Sub- 
sequently, in 191 1, 
following a period of 

ill-health, he went out to South Africa, where 
in a short space of time he developed an exten- 
sive private practice at Wolmaranstadt and filled 
many public positions of importance. 

Ross joined the R.A.M.C. at the outbreak of 
war and served in West Africa throughout the 
entire campaign there. Later he took over 
control of Klerksdorp Hospital to permit two

resident medical men to serve in France. His 
health, affected by the rigours of campaigning, 
was indifferent and his duties as District Sur- 
geon, Medical Officer of Health, and Physician 
to the staff of six mines overtaxed his strength, 
he died of pneumonia on 4 June 191 7. His 
work on service was commended by those under 
whom he directed the medical organization en- 
trusted to his particular care, and his personal 
popularity while at the University, in the Army 
and in private practice was a tribute to his win- 
ning personality. 

SMITH, NORMAN WILLIAM: Lance- 

Corporal, 39th Battalion Australian 

Imperial Force; 

son of William Smith, 
Dulford, Bridge of

popular in the University, in all the activities of 
which he took a very keen interest. He gained 
the University Diploma in Agriculture in 1914 
and then commenced the study of Medicine. 
In January 191 6 he enlisted in the Royal Fusi- 
liers and was later commissioned in the North- 
umberlands. He went to France in June 1916, 
and, just after receiving the command of his

MILNE, ALLAN SMITH : 2nd Lieutenant, 
5th Battalion Gordon Highlanders; son of

for ministerial workers in the Y.M.C.A. Huts in 
France, and was stationed at Rouen, where he 
served till February 
19 1 7. The excessive 
cold of that winter 
brought on disease, 
against which he 
struggled bravely, and 
stuck to his work till 
the end of his term of 
service. His health, 
however, had been per- 
manently impaired, and 
he died at Oxnam, near 
Jedburgh, 29 June

until his death. He quickly gained a reputation 
as one of the best regimental medical officers in 
the Division, keen, gallant and conscientious in 
the discharge of his duties. He was awarded 
the Military Cross for gallantry under fire at the 
Battle of Beaumont Hamel on 13 November,

19 1 6, while attending to the wounded during 
the action and clearing the field afterwards. He 
died of wounds from a shell received while in 
discharge of his duties north of Ypres in the 
action of July 191 7. His cheer} - optimism and 
unfailing good temper combined with his high 
professional abilities procured him the confi- 
dence and esteem of all with whom he came in 
contact. 

BADEXOCH, Rev. JOHN: Private, 
R.A.M.C. ; son of James Badenoch, auctioneer 
and valuator, Portsoy ; 
born R a th v e n, 18 
March 1877; edu- 
cated Portsoy Public 
School, Fordyce 
Academy, Aberdeen 
Grammar School and 
University ; graduated 
M.A. (Ill Math.), 
1900. Thereafter he 
was teacher at Dornoch, 
Girvan and elsewhere. 
He resumed attend- 
ance at the University 
of Aberdeen in 19 14, as a- Divinity student, 
gained several class prizes and other distinctions, 
and received licence in April. 

In June 19 14 with patriotic zeal, at the age of 
39, he enlisted under the Derby Scheme in the 
R.A.M.C. After three months of training at 
Aldershot, he was sent to Mesopotamia, where 
he served with much credit and devotion. He 
died of heat-stroke on n July 191 7. The 
Chaplain wrote of him: "He was beloved by 
all who knew him. . . . While engaged in his 
strenuous work in the R.A.M.C. he played the 
manly and Christian part . . . and finally 
crowned his ministry of service with the supreme 
sacrifice." 

GUTHRIE, ALEXANDER : Lieutenant, 
1st Highland Brigade, Royal Field Artil- 
lery ; son of Rev. W. G. Guthrie, Glass, Aber- 
deenshire ; born at Corse Schoolhouse, Leochel- 
Cushnie, 8 October 1893 ; educated at Ellon 
H.G. School and Gordon's College ; matricu- 
lated 1913 ; student in Arts, 1913-15. 

He enlisted at the close of his second winter 





session, March 1915, and received a commission 
as 2nd Lieutenant in the 1st Highland Brigade 
R.F.A., in May of the 
same year. After nine 
months' training in 
this country he pro- 
ceeded to France and 
took part in the de- 
fensive fighting on the 
Ypres and Arras 
Fronts during the 
summer of 1916. He 
was slightly wounded 
at the Battle of the 
Somme and was in- 
valided home for a few 

months. He returned to France in the end of 
the year, followed up the German retreat from 
the Somme, fought at the capture of Messines 
ridge in the spring of 191 7, and was killed at 
Nieuport in Belgium on 12 July 191 7, while 
trying to save a comrade who had been entombed 
by the explosion of a German shell. He was 
promoted Lieutenant a few days before his 
death and was mentioned in dispatches of 7 
November 191 7 for distinguished and gallant 
conduct. 

Possessed of a fund of real common sense 
and a staunchness on which his friends could and 
did place infinite reliance, Guthrie's influence 
was great and always for the highest. If he had 
been permitted to carry out his intention of pro- 
ceeding to the ministry, some parish would have 
had the inestimable benefit of a minister whose 
advice and assistance could, as a friend has said, 
" put confidence into the waverer, and restraint 
upon the impetuous ". 

DUTHIE, JOHN MITCHELL : Lance- 
Corporal, 5th Battalion Gordon High-

5th Battalion Gordon Highlanders. After train- 
ing at Ripon he left for France in February 191 7 
and fought on the Belgian frontier, till he was

killed in action near 




Ypres, 31 July 191 7. 
Even at school Duthie 
had shown himself a 
leader, and those who 
knew him well looked 
forward to the time 
when he would prove 
himself a leader of 
men, and life would 
call forth on high en- 
deavour the energies 
and abilities which he 
possessed in such full 
measure. 



MYLES, THOMAS BOOTH : Captain, 12th 
Battalion Highland Light Infantry ; M.C. ; 

born Arbroath, 25 
December 1892. He 
came from Arbroath 
to study Agriculture in 
1911. During his 
three years at the Uni- 
versity, he became very 
well - known, particu- 
larly as a skilful cricket 
player, and his breezy 
good nature and ready 
wit made him a general 
favourite. " No 'Var- 
sity function," says a 
contemporary, " was complete without him." 

Immediately on the outbreak of war, he joined 
the 4th Gordon Highlanders, and in February 
1915 was appointed to a commission in the 12th 
Battalion Highland Light Infantry. He served 
at home with this unit for about eight months 
before proceeding to France where, early in 191 6, 
he was promoted to a captaincy and awarded the

in France. He was 
killed at the opening 
of the third Battle of 
Ypres, 31 July 19 17, 
whilst carrying on 
through smoke and 

darkness., His CO. wrote: "When I last saw 
Spark he was leading his men in a very gallant 
manner. He was a great favourite with his brother 
officers and men, and I, as his CO., appreciated 
very much the quiet, willing way in which he 
went about his work. He was splendidly loyal, 
and admirable both as a soldier and a man."

Corporal, Argyll and Sutherland High- 
landers ; son of James

became a pupil teacher 
at Row, Dumbarton- 
shire, and in igor 
entered Aberdeen Uni- 
versity where he gradu- 
ated M.A. in 1905. 

He was a most successful teacher in Queen's 
Park Higher Grade School ' when war broke 
out. 

While a student Wilson was an ardent member 
of " U " Company in the old volunteer days, and 
this training proved valuable when he enlisted 
early in the war, joining the 14th Argyll and 
Sutherland Highlanders. He proceeded to 
France in 1916, but was invalided home for a 
short time. Having been transferred to the 1 ith

deeply grieved at his death for he was ever a 
smart, keen, conscientious and gallant soldier. 
On the day of battle he led his men like a hero 
and never once flinched." "He fell," says a 
brother officer, " accomplishing a piece of work 
which has yet further added to the splendid name 
of this Battalion."

a sudden counter-attack, 5 August 191 7. His 
Colonel wrote : " Although outnumbered, and 
under climatic conditions impossible to adequately 
describe, Captain Howitt and his men beat the 
enemy back in the fierce hand-to-hand fighting. 
' Jock ' Howitt died fighting to the last, one of 
the bravest of the brave. . . . Had he survived 
he would have secured another well-earned

14 August 191 7 his ship struck a mine and was 
lost with all on board. 

Kenneth MacDonald was only 19 when he 
died, and was one of those who seemed to have 
every possibility before them. Through all his 
school and College days he passed with effortless 
distinction, easily first in his classes, and intel- 
lectually clear and brilliant beyond his age- 
Added to these qualities of mind were the still 
more attractive ones of humility and goodness, 
courage and readiness for sacrifice. Like so 
many who had much to give, he gave it 
willingly.

10th Essex Regiment. 
He served for a time 
in home camps and 
then in France and 
Belgium from 191 5 to

his rapid rise to the rank of Captain and by the 
award of the Military Cross, " for conspicuous 
gallantry in action ". 

Hunt was wounded in action at Ypres on 
31 July, and died in hospital at Le Touquet on

was wounded severely in May 19 16, and again 
shortly before his death, when his fine spirit 
would not let him give in. Gallantly leading 
his men in the thick of the fighting he was 
killed in action near Ypres, 22 August 191 7. 
Milne was most popular in the Army, officers, 
chaplains and men alike testified to the love 
and devotion he inspired in those who came 
in touch with him. His CO. wrote of him 
as "a very gallant capable leader of men and 
an ever cheerful comrade ".

forward with an assaulting company of infantry, 
in the Vardar Valley, Macedonia. His Captain 
wrote : " He was an excellent officer, good, 
strict and popular . . . men of his type are 
few and far between. He was a thorough 
gentleman and a sportsman ".

tion when he was killed by a shell, 20 Sep- 
tember 191 7. 

Jenkins was already well known and highly 
esteemed in the business circles with which 
he was connected, and his death cut short a 
career of much promise.

School and Elgin Aca- 
demy ; graduated M. A. 
(Hons. Maths.), 191 1, 
gaining the Amott 
Prize in Experimental 
Physics. From his 
schooldays his ability 
was outstanding, and 
one of his Professors 
has said of him : " His 
written papers showed 
a faculty of lucid_ exposition which I have never 
in all my experience as a Professor seen sur- 
passed ". He was keenly interested in meteoro- 
logical work and after graduating held an 
appointment in the Royal Observatory in Edin- 
burgh. 

1 1 Harper joined the Territorials in 1908, re- 
enlisted on 5 August 191 4, and served in France 
and Flanders. After a period of training at 
General Headquarters Cadet School, France, he

Battalion The Black Watch, in August 19 16, 
and was promoted Lieutenant a year later. He 
was killed in action at Passchendaele on 12 
October 191 7. His Officer commanding wrote : 
" His death was as gallant as was to be ex- 
pected. . . . He gave his life in a fight which was 
one of the bitterest and hardest this Battalion 
has taken part in, and by his leadership helped 
to maintain the high tradition which the Battal- 
ion has earned." 

MILNE, GEORGE SMITH MITCHELL : 

Lieutenant, 10th Battalion Gordon 
Highlanders; son of Charles Milne, draper; 
bom Aberdeen, 8 August 1894 ; educated Aber- 
deen Grammar School; graduated M.A., 1914; 
was studying Economics and Law whew war broke 
out. 

He was a Private in "D" Company, 4th 
Gordon Highlanders, and was mobilized with 
the regiment, serving in the ranks until he was 
commissioned in the 10th Battalion in October 
19 14. Milne served in France from October 




1 9 1 5 till the following August, when he returned 
to England to train for the R.F.C. As the result 
of a flying accident he 
was unable to com- 
plete his training, and 
returned to the 10th 
Gordons, August 191 7. 
He was killed at Fam- 
p o u x, 14 October 
191 7, whilst leading a 
daring daylight raid, 
"from which many a 
man of iron nerve 
would have flinched ". 
He had proved himself 
a fine soldier and was 
beloved by his men. 

THOMSON, JAMES GEORGE : Gunner, 
Royal Field Artillery ; son of James 
Thomson, cabinet- 
maker, Fochabers ; 
born there, 20 Decem- 
ber 1893 ; educated

France with the 4th 
Gordons, rising to the 

rank of Sergeant. He was wounded in 191 5 
and later transferred to the R.F.A. He fell in 
action 19 October 191 7. 

Thomson will be remembered by his old 
companions of " U " Company for his keen 
sense of the humorous. Every experience, even 
in the dreary days of trench life, contributed 
something to the stock of good stories which he 
loved to tell. 

DAWSON, REV. DAVID STEWART : 

Lieutenant, Gordon Highlanders ; son of 

James Dawson ; born Melbourne, 27 August 
1890; graduated M.A., 1910; student in Di- 
vinity, 19 10- 1 3 ; Assistant, Portobello Parish 
Church.

IN MEMORIAM. 




Dawson volunteered for service soon after 
the outbreak of war, was commissioned in the 
Special Reserve of 
Officers (Infantry), in 
July 1 91 5 and at- 
tached to the 2nd 
Battalion Gordon 
Highlanders with 
which he served in 
France until he was 
wounded at Givenchy 
in September 191 6. 
He never recovered 
from the effects of his 
wounds and died in 
Aberdeen on 20 Octo- 
ber 191 7. 
As a minister, Dawson was conscientious and 
successful and, in his short military career, had 
already gained the reputation of a brave and 
gallant officer. 

BROW N, GEORGE : Surgeon -Proba- 
tioner, R.N.V.R. ; born Banff, 13 December 
1895 ; educated at 
Cullen Public School 
and Fordyce Academy ; 
matriculated Aberdeen 
University, 1914; 
student in Medicine, 
1914-15. 

He joined the Navy 
as a Sick Bay Steward, 
3 July 1915, and be- 
fore long was promoted 
Surgeon - Probationer. 
He served on board 
H.M.S. "Marmion," 
which was acting as a convoy in the North Sea, 
and went down with his ship, 21 October 191 7 ; 
later the grateful testimony was received that 
" he was highly thought of by his superior 
officers". Brown had little time to make his 
mark at the University, but he brought with him 
the breezy, cheery nature of the dweller by the 
sea-board, ready and willing to bear all the blows 
and buffets that man or Nature might bring. 

STEPHEN, DAVID JAMES SHIRRAS : 
Captain, R.A.M.C., ; M.C. with Bar ; 





son of Alexander Stephen, draper ; born at 
Fyvie, 21 June 1888. Graduated M.B., 1910 ; 
M.D., 1912. He was

commission in the 
R.A.M.C. in October 
1 9 14, and spent some 
months in a military 
hospital at Woolwich. 
He went to the Front 
as M.O. to a Brigade 

of Artillery, and later became D.A.D.M.S. to the 
Division. In the second Battle of Ypres he was 
awarded the Military Cross "for conspicuous 
gallantry and devotion to duty in attending to 
wounded under heavy shell-fire " ; was recom- 
mended for the Victoria Cross, and a few weeks 
before his death received a bar to the M.C. It 
was at Poelcapelle, on 24 October 191 7, that he 
died, of gas-shell poisoning. His death was 
characteristic of his unselfish devotion to duty, 
for it was in attending to a wounded officer that 
he neglected to take precautions in the adjust- 
ment of his gas-mask. Added to his serious 
qualities of character, he possessed a never- 
failing fund of cheerfulness and good spirits — 
an invaluable asset to the morale of his battery, 
where he was both loved and missed.

1 9 1 6. After some months in hospital he went out 
again and was a member of a Signalling Section. 
Whilst in charge of forward lines during action at 
Passchendaele on 26 October 191 7, he was killed 
in an attempt to repair some broken wires.

F. Grant, gardener ; born 
Lonmay, 21 August 
1894; educated Lon-

convalescence he joined the 3rd Battalion at 
Aberdeen and returned to France, 6 October 

191 7. He was killed in action at Gheluvelt, 
Belgium, 26 October 191 7. 

MILNE, WILLIAM CHARLES : Lieu- 
tenant, 121st Pioneers (Indian Army) ; 

elder son of John Milne, chemist ; born Fetter- 
angus, 26 July 1886 ; educated- Aberdeen 
Grammar School; graduated M.A., 1908. He 
studied at Oxford and in Germany as a pro- 
bationer for the Indian Forest Service and was 




appointed in 191 1 Assistant Conservator, attached 
to the Northern Circle of the Bombay Presidency. 
In 191 3 he was placed in charge of the East 
Khandesh Forest Division. 

Transferred on the outbreak of war to the 
Indian Army Reserve, he was later attached to 
the Indian Infantry and sent to Mesopotamia 
where he was stationed at Samarrah. He died of 
enteric at the Officers' Hospital, Bagdad, on 29 
October 191 7. 

MACLEOD, WILLIAM PATRICK: Lance- 
Corporal, 1st Battalion Seaforth High- 
landers ; son of 
Murdo Macleod, bank 
agent ; born Storno- 
way, 9 June 1886 ; 
educated Ni cols on 
Institute, Stornoway ; 
graduated M.A., 1910. 
He taught for a time at 
Newburgh, Fife, and 
was later English

longed to the " U " Company, Gordon High- 
landers, and later joined the Scottish Horse. In

and after training in England, was sent out to 
France in May 1 9 1 5 . He was severely wounded, 
and was for some time in hospital at home. In 
October 191 6 he was transferred to the 1st 
Battalion of his regiment, then in Mesopotamia, 
was present at the fighting at Sanna-i-yat, and 
took part in General Maude's advance to 
Samarrah. It was in this campaign that he fell, 
being killed in action at Takrit, 5 November 
191 7. Macleod never applied for a commission, 
although well qualified to hold one. He wanted 
to belong to the rank and file, to take whatever 
was going, and enjoy no advantage — even 
declining the supplement to his pay offered by 
the Jedburgh School Board. On service, as 
in his student and teaching days, he was the 
same honest, brave, unselfish friend and comrade 
and worker — -vivid and charming in speech, gay 
and full of humour, interested in men and in 
life, unconventional in thought and outlook:

educated Royal Aca- 
demy and Central 
School, Inverness ; 
graduated M.A., 191 2 ; 
teacher at Cromarty, 
Pitlochry and Govan. 

Cameron joined the 
3/4th Cameron High- 
landers in February 
1 91 6 and was later 
posted to the 1st Camerons. After some months' 
training at Ripon, he went abroad in July 1916 
and served in France and Belgium, taking part 
in several severe engagements. He was wounded 
on 16 November 191 7 while advancing in an 
attack on the ridge of Passchendaele and died 
the same day. Though of a quiet and retiring 
temperament, he was a frank and generous com- 
panion and would assuredly have made a name 
for himself in his profession. 

SKAKLE, REV. HUGH PHILIP: Captain, 
4th Battalion Gordon Highlanders ; 

son of George Skakle, 
jeweller ; born Aber- 
deen, 25 July 1889 ; 
educated Gordon's 
College and Aberdeen 
University; M.A., 
1911 ; B.D., 1 9 1 4. 
He was a distinguished 
student, gaining 
numerous class prizes ; 
an accomplished 
musician, possessed of 
a fine tenor voice ; and 
an enthusiastic athlete, 
as was proved by his prowess in swimming, gym- 
nastics, and rowing. After licence in May 19 14, 
he was Assistant at St. Michael's, Dumfries, 
whose minister testifies to his " strong character, 
high purpose, and decidedly spiritual cast ". 

In January 191 5 Skakle enlisted in the 4th 
Gordon Highlanders, and within a month 




received a commission as 2nd Lieutenant. He 
served for two years in France with the highest 
credit ; was wounded at High Wood, Tuly 1916 ; 
after recovery was promoted Captain, July 191 7 ; 
was honourably mentioned in dispatches by Sir 
Douglas Haig, and fell in battle at Containg, 21 
November 19 1 7. His Colonel wrote: "lean- 
not speak too highly of his work as an officer ; he 
did magnificently ". A Chaplain describes him as 
" adored by his men, friend and counsellor of all ". 

CLARKE, AUSTIN BASIL : Captain, 
R.A.M.C. ; M,C. ; son of Dr. A. B. Clarke ; 
born Shebbear, North 
Devon, 9 July 1892 ; 
graduated M. B., 

I9IS- 

A foremost member 
of the O.T.C., Clarke, 
on graduation, at once 
obtained a commission 
in the R. A. M. C. 
After a few months in 
training he proceeded 
to France as Medical 
Officer to the Queen 
Victoria's Rifles, a 
Battalion of the London Territorial Division. 
For three years he remained with this Battalion, 
was in all their hard-fought engagements, and by 
his zeal and devotion to duty endeared himself 
to every officer and man, gaining the Military 
Cross for his valour. He refused an offered 
Staff appointment, stating that his duty was to 
remain with his Battalion. And so serving his 
country he met his death on the Bapaume- 
Cambrai Road on 23 November 19 17. The 
letter written by his Colonel is one of the finest 
appreciations of service it is possible for a man to 
have had : " He deserved a decoration every 
time he went into action. Only the day before 
he was killed he went out into ' No Man's Land ' 
and carried back a wounded airman into our 
lines — but I could fill pages with his bravery." 
His Divisional Colonel wrote : " You know how 
your son loved his men and how he would dare 
all for them, and they just worshipped him — no 
Doctor was like their Doctor. . . . Professionally 
he was the beau ideal of a brave regimental 
Medical Officer."

MINTY, GEORGE : Captain, 6th Bat- 
talion Gordon Highlanders ; son of 

George Minty ; born

Maud and Old Deer 
Schools and entered 
Gordon's College, 
Aberdeen in 1897, 
having gained the 
Smith Bursar}" ; student 
in Arts, 1899-1903. 
From 1903-05 he 
taught in Cowdenbeath 
and Kelty and was 
then appointed to Mortlach Higher Grade 
School as assistant master. He graduated 
M.A. in 1908 and became headmaster of 
Inverkeithny Public School in October 1909. 

Minty was commissioned 2nd Lieutenant in 
the 6th Battalion Gordon Highlanders, 24 
November 19 14, and served as Musketry In- 
structor till he crossed to France in March 

1 91 6. He was killed leading his Company 
to the attack at Cambrai on 23 November 

19 1 7. At the time of his death he held the 
rank of Captain. 

A man of gigantic physical strength and 
rare kindliness of disposition, Minty was a 
well-known figure at the 'Varsity. He played 
for the first Rugby XV and threw the hammer 
in Inter-Varsity sports. A leader among men, 
he had a courage nothing could quell — Minty 
always came up smiling. To the very last, 
when, though wounded, he continued to com- 
mand his Company, he was still the heroic and 
undaunted figure which roused the admiration 
of his friends of College days. 

REID, WILLIAM JOHN : 2nd Lieuten-

commission in the Lancashire Fusiliers, and in 
September 19 17 was back in France. He fell, 
on 2nd December 191 7, near Cambrai. Charles 
Buchan's great desire had always been to do 
something for the world. He loved men and 
found good in every one ; he knew how to be 
widely tolerant and sympathetic without for a 
moment lowering his own high standard or yield- 
ing his principles ; and his perfect sincerity and 
earnestness won him the love and respect of men 
of all types and characters.

that the work was accomplished ". He was a 
man of remarkable sweetness of disposition and 
charm of manner, with a quaint humour all his

loved by those who served with and under 
him.

commended. He was killed in action on 21 
March 1918 near Beaumez-les-Cambrai, at the 
very outset of the German attack.

cooper ; born Ab e r -

Samaritan Free 
Hospital, London, 
winning high recom- 
mendation from such 
eminent authorities as Bumin and Nagel of 
Berlin, and McCann of the Samaritan Hospital. 
An appointment as Medical Officer to the Dooars, 
India, gave him valuable experience, and further 
increased his reputation by the efficiency with 
which he dealt with an extensive outbreak of 
cholera. On his return to Aberdeen he set 
up in private practice, and was also appointed 
Senior Assistant Anaesthetist at the Royal In- 
firmary. 

When mobilization orders came in 19 14,

Highland Field Ambulance. In May 191 5 he 
went to France where he rose rapidly in rank, 
commanded the Ambulance, and was mentioned 
in Sir Douglas Haig's Dispatch of Christmas 
191 7. His death in action near Bapaume on 
21 March 1918 cut short a career which had 
already done credit to his Alma Mater. Gifted 
with a high intelligence, accompanied by un- 
quenchable enthusiasm and that possession so 
necessary to the true research worker, imagina- 
tion, Robertson would have justified the ex- 
pectations of those who hoped great things of 
his future career.

possessed all the soldierly qualities which go to 
the making of the fine officer. Many wrote their 
appreciation of him and of his work in the 
Army, which was summed up in the words of 
his CO. : " He had done magnificent work in 
the very strenuous fighting in which we were en- 
gaged, he led his men with great skill, bravery 
and dash, his work while in command of the 
Company culminating in the glorious example of 
personal braver}' and perseverance which he set to 
all his officers and men during the last four terrible 
days of his life — all of it was simply splendid ".

Kennedy had to give 
up his studies for a 
time, owing to bad 
health, and went to Borneo.

In January 1 9 1 6 he returned from abroad to 
join the Seaforth Highlanders, in which he served 
until February 191 7, when he was commissioned 
2nd Lieutenant in the Lancashire Fusiliers. He 
was trained at Ripon, from January to April 
1 91 6, and served with distinction in France 
from April 1916 to March 1918. At the time 
of his death, his Colonel testified to his splendid 
qualities of leadership and his gallantry as a 
gentleman. Kennedy was one of the medical 
students who were given permission to return to 
finish their medical course, but he asked his 
Commanding Officer to be allowed to remain for 
the attack which was daily expected. His re- 
quest was granted, and now the Highlands are 
the poorer for the loss of one who nobly gave his 
life. He fell in action at Mari court on 26 March 
1918. 

IRVINE, EDWARD WHITE : 2nd Lieu- 
tenant, Royal Field Artillery ; son of Rev. 
John A. Irvine, 
Aberdeen ; born Liver- 
p o o 1, 30 September 
1897 ; educated Aber- 
deen Grammar School ; 
student in Medicine, 
1915-16. 

Irvine served with the 
Aberdeen University 
O.T.C. from 1915-16, 
and with the Edinburgh 
University O.T.C. from 
1916-17; he was com- 
missioned in the R.F. A., 
June 191 7, gained special distinction in signall- 
ing, and proceeded to France early in the follow- 
ing year. His military career was all too short, 
for after seven weeks in France he fell near Mor- 
court-sur-Somme, at the head of his guns, lead- 
ing them into action, 27 March 19 18. During 
all the previous seven days of almost continuous 
fighting his cheerful courage had never failed. 
Summing up his character one who knew him 
well wrote : " He was a son to be proud of, a friend 
to be loved, a man to be respected and a soldier 
worthy of the highest praise ".

when he was attached 
to the 1 st Battalion 

Royal Fusiliers ; severely wounded November 
191 6. Returned to France and served with 3rd 
Royal Scots Fusiliers in February 191 7. Killed 
in action near the Menin Road, 28 March 191 8. 

SENEQUE, EUGENE PROSPER : Private, 
Hampshire Regiment ; son of Jean Joseph 
Seneque, engineer ; born Mauritius, 7 September 
1884 ; matriculated, 191 2 ; student in Medicine, 
1912-14. 

When war broke out Seneque was a third year 
student, and instead of continuing his medical 
studies he enlisted, October 19 14, in the Hamp- 
shire Regiment, serving first with the nth and 
later with the 1st Battalion. All his active 
service was in France, where he served con- 
tinuously from 1914 onwards, except for one 
short period in hospital. On 28 March 19 18 
he was hit by a bomb and killed instantaneously. 
His CO. wrote : " I hear specially good ac- 
counts of his behaviour during the attack. He 
displayed great coolness, and would probably 
have had his name forwarded for a decoration 
had he come through." 

ARCHIBALD, JOHN : Captain, 6th Bat-

Bar ; son of Thomas G. Archibald, architect ; 
born Huntly, 10 September 1893. He was edu- 
cated at Gordon Schools, Huntly, and matricu- 
lated as an Arts student in the winter of 191 2, 
his intention being to enter the Church. 

He was mobilized on the outbreak of war with 
the 6th Battalion Gordon Highlanders, and hold-

ing the rank of Sergeant he proceeded to France 
with the Battalion in November 1914. Severely 
wounded at N e u v e 
Chapelle, he was in- 
valided home, but 
very soon after re- 
covery he returned to 
France. June 19 15 
saw him commissioned 
in the 6th Gordons 
for his work on the 
field. He was wounded 
a second time during 
the Somme offensive 
in 1 91 6, and after a 
brief spell in hospital 
returned to the Front, where he served continu- 
ously until the spring of 19 18. He was Captain 
and Adjutant of his Battalion, when during the 
German offensive of March he was wounded for 
the third time, receiving mortal injuries to which 
he succumbed on 31 March. 

Suddenly launched on a career so very di- 
vergent from the one he had in his mind to 
adopt, he was not found wanting, but gained 
distinction, receiving the Military Cross and in 
King's Birthday Honours, 1918 — Bar to M.C. 

McKENZIE, LESLIE : Lieutenant, Black 
Watch ; son of the Rev. Alexander McKenzie ; 
born Coull, 20 June 
1893; educated 
Gordon's College, 
Aberdeen ; entered 
Aberdeen University 
as bursar, 1911; 
Jenkyns Prize in Classi- 
cal Philology, 1914 ; 
M.A., 1915. A student 
of the highest promise, 
he was prevented by 
the outbreak of war 
from finishing his 
Honours course in 
Classics, but was granted the degree of M.A. in 
absentia. 

McKenzie was mobilized with " U " Company, 
4th Gordon Highlanders, and on 1 January 19 15 
was gazetted to the 8th Black Watch, with whom 
he crossed to France in May. He was twice 




severely wounded, but returned to the Front each 
time and served until wounded at Arras so 
severely that he died at Camieres on 2 April 
1918. 

There was nothing in "Homer" McKenzie 
that was not genuine, and everything he did he 
did with both hands. He never shirked spade 
work, and his scholarship was all the more 
brilliant for being sound. Ever unruffled in 
spirit by the heaviest defeat, he must have de- 
liberately " wangled " his third trip to France — 
otherwise the effects of his wounds would have 
kept him at home. Still young in years, he died 
a man who confirmed among men the promise 
of his youth. 

JOHNSTON, JOHN: 2nd Lieutenant, 

Royal Engineers ; son of William Johnston, 

blacksmith ; born 

Hatton of Fintray, 

Aberdeenshire, 27 

August 1893 ; student 

in Arts, 1913-15. 

Immediately on the 
outbreak of hostilities 
Johnston offered him- 
self for service, but it 
was in the second year 
of the war that circum- 
stances admitted of his 
entering the Army, and 
he became a Sapper, 

R.E., August 191 5. His ardent wish was to go 
on active service, but an appointment as drill 
instructor caused another delay, and it was not 
till the spring of 1918, shortly after he had been 
commissioned in the R.E., that he reached the 
Front. He took part in the heavy fighting in 
March of that year, but his period of active service 
was brief. He had been only five weeks abroad 
when he was killed by a sniper, near Messines, 
Flanders, 9 April 1918 — "a fearless, true- 
hearted son of the north ". 

CHRYSTALL, WILLIAM : Private, Elack 
Watch ; son of James L. Chrystall, house- 
painter; born Banchory, 23 May 1899 ; educated

in his short University career gave promise of

his " full-grown energies ". To take one first 
place, one second, two

record not often sur-

Elgin West End School 
and Academy ; he came 
up to the University in 
1905, was a student in 
Arts from 1905-08, 
and student in Science 
1908-09. Graduated 
M.A., 1908. The same 
year he became Science 
Master at Alva 
Academy, Clackmannanshire, and three years 
later was transferred to Tayport Academy, Fife, 
also as Science Master. 

Whilst at the University he was an enthusiastic 
member of " U " Company, 4th Gordon High- 
landers. After the outbreak of war he was, owing 
to his profession, exempted for some time, but 
in September 191 7 he was posted to the Gas 
Service, R.E., and in January 19 18 proceeded 
to France with one of the Special Companies, 
R.E. He was killed in action at Steenwerck, 
Flanders, 10 April 19 18. 




HENDERSON, JAMES MACDONALD : 
Acting-Major, 4th Battalion Gordon 
Highlanders (attd. 
Argyll and Suther- 
land Highlanders); 
M.C. with Bar; 
son of James M. 
Henderson, farmer; 
born Rosskeen, 6 
January 1 8 9 1 ; edu- 
cated Invergordon 
Academy and Gordon's 
College ; entered the 
University, 1908, as 
19th bursar. It was 
to English studies he 

turned, and he closed a brilliant progress by 
graduating M.A., 191 2 with 1st Class Honours 
in English (Seafield Medal, Minto Prize). 
Henderson's character, as it gradually revealed 
itself to one who, like the writer, knew him first 
across the barrier that separates teacher and 
taught, and then with ever increasing intimacy as 
Assistant (19 13) and friend, was a continuous 
unfolding of new depths and heights. All his 
work was excellent, and he showed himself an 
enthusiastic but discriminating student of the 
work of living poets and prose writers. I have 
had few greater pleasures than that of a daily 
intercourse with his beautiful and modest char- 
acter, his ardour and conscientiousness as teacher 
and examiner, his pure and genuine zeal for 
literature. ' 

Then came the war, and a new revelation of 
the depth and strength of character which 
underlay the eagerness and refinement of his 
mind and temper. When he enlisted, almost 
immediately after the opening of the session, I 
admired what seemed to me a great act of moral 
courage on the part of a retired student bound 
to feel acutely out of harmony with his environ- 
ment. It proved quite otherwise. As a Private 
in the 2/4th Gordons he found points of contact 
and sympathy with men of traditions and ex- 
perience the most remote from his own. He 
became an ardent and persuasive recruiter. In 
May 191 5 he received a commission in the 3/4th 
Gordons and soon went abroad. On active 
service he proved not only a conscientious but 
a courageous and able soldier, intellectually

IN MEMORIAM. 



interested in the career he had embraced as an 
act of duty, as loyally devoted to the officers 
under whom he served as he had been to the 
teachers under whom he studied. In 1916 he 
received the Military Cross for his courage and 
enterprise in raiding trenches, and in April 191 7 
a bar to the Cross for his conduct in the attack 
on Vimy Ridge. 

A man of his fine and sensitive character 
necessarily felt the cruel and terrible strain 
of the war, but in a single letter only did 
he sound a despondent note, and when I met 
him shortly afterwards the mood had gone and 
his note was that of cheerful resignation, with 
just a shade of contempt for those who were 
earning distinctions in safe billets at home. Each 
return showed an advance in self-confidence and 
power to accept responsibility. He was at home 
on leave from the 7th Argyll and Sutherland 
Highlanders (to which he had been attached as 
Acting-Major) when th.e great German offensive 
began in March 1918. Without waiting for his 
recall he hurried back, and was killed in action 
at Locon, n April 1918. In a few years he had 
lived a full life, had developed from the shy, 
absorbed student to the brave and enterprising 
soldier, to the experienced and able and trusted 
officer who, at the moment he fell, was Acting- 
Commander of his Battalion. 

SKENE, IAN: 2nd Lieutenant, 6th 
Battalion Lancashire Fusiliers ; M.C. ; 

son of Alexander 
Skene of Avondow ; 
born Peterculter, 1 2 
July 1 89 1. He was 
educated at Robert 
Gordon's College, and 
in 1908 entered Aber- 
deen University as a 
student of medicine. 
He took a whole- 
hearted part in the 
social — particularly the 
musical — and sporting 
life of his class. Apart 
from a love of books he was not a student by 
nature, and in 19 12 he went to Ceylon, as a 
learner on a tea estate. There he found a wide 
and congenial field for his energies in his work 




as a planter, in athletics and as a member of 
the Ceylon Planters' Rifle Corps and Motor Cycle 
Corps. 

As a student he had served for four years in 
" U " Company, 4th Gordons, and in the spring of 
191 7 he came home and enlisted in the Gordon 
Highlanders. He was sent to the Cadet 
Battalion at Gailes, and in October was com- 
missioned and gazetted to the Lancashire 
Fusiliers. He joined the i/6th Battalion of his 
Regiment in France a month later. He was 
one of those who at once adapted themselves to 
active service conditions ; in March 19 18 the 
Divisional Commander wrote to his Brigadier : 
" Please congratulate 2nd Lieutenant Ian Skene 
on his patrolling. He has been doing a lot of 
good work lately." He was awarded the Military- 
Cross for gallantry in leading trench raids on the 
13th, 14th, and 15th of March. On the 22nd of 
that month he was wounded and taken prisoner. 
On 13 April 1918 he died in the German War 
Hospital at Valenciennes.

teacher, proceeding 
afterwards to the Nicol- 
son Institute, Storno- 
way, and in 191 1 to 
Aberdeen University, 
graduating M.A. in 
1914. 

Before the war 
Munro had been in the Ross Mountain Battery 
and a Private in " U " Company, 4th Gordon 
Highlanders. In August 19 14 he joined the 
4th Seaforth Highlanders as a Private and served 
with them in France from November 19 14 to 
June 1916, when he was sent to Gailes Cadet 
Camp. He was commissioned in November 
191 6, returned to France and served till he fell 
in action at Wytschaete, Belgium, on 16 April 
1 918. He was awarded the Military Cross on 
13 April 1918 : " For conspicuous gallantry and

of the Battalion with his platoon until it was 
nearly surrounded, and extricated it from a very 
difficult position in a most skilful manner ". 

BOOTH, JOHN LYON : Captain, the Sea-

School ; matriculated 
in Arts, 19 10, entering 
the University as 7 th 
Bursar; graduated 
M. A. 191 4, with 
Second Class Honours 
in Classics, gaining dis- 
tinction in Roman 
History. 
A time-expired Territorial he rejoined the 
Grammar School Company of the 6th Battalion 
Gordon Highlanders on 24 August 19 14, 
leaving a post in journalism in order to do so. 
Crossing to France in March 19 15, he was 
shortly afterwards sent to the Officers Training 
Corps at G.H.Q., whence he was commissioned 
in the 2nd Battalion Seaforth "Highlanders. 
Thereafter Booth's advancement was rapid. 
He rose to a substantive captaincy, and acted 
first as Officer Commanding, and then as Second 
in Command of his Battalion^ — surely a unique 
record for a Territorial of twenty-four in a line 
regiment. In November 19 16 he was awarded 
the Military Cross. During those tense April 
days he fell at Paccut Wood, near La Bassee, 
18 April 1918. 

Conscientious and resolute, he was an out- 
standing soldier and a steadfast friend. 

MILNE, PATRICK GEORGE : Captain, 
R.A.M.C. ; son of James Milne ; born Fraser- 
burgh, 3 January 1887; educated Fraserburgh 
Academy and subsequently at Milne's Institu- 
tion, Fochabers; graduated M.B., 1915. 

Immediately after graduation he joined the 
R.A.M.C., was attached to the 91st Field Am- 
bulance, and was shortly afterwards gazetted to 



the 93rd Field Ambulance, July 19 15. 



He

served for a time in 
to England, where he 
was President of Medi-

dressing station near 
Armentieres, 22 April 
1918. 



BRUCE, WILLIAiM GEORGE : Lieu-

Bruce, advocate ; born 
Aberdeen, 8 July 
1895 ; educated Aber- 
deen Grammar School ; 
student in Agriculture, 
1913-14. 

During the session 
he spent as an Agri- 
cultural student at the 
University, Bruce 
joined the Signal Sec- 
tion, 4th Gordon 
Highlanders, and was 
mobilized on the out- 
break of war. He was transferred to the Royal 
Engineers in December, and obtained a com- 
mission in May 19 15. After serving at home 
with the 64th Signal Company, R.E., he pro- 
ceeded to France in November 19 17 as a Signal 
Officer in the 8th Corps. He subsequently 
became Signal Officer to the 156th Brigade, 
R.F.A., which post he held till he was killed in 
action near Kemmel Hill, 25 April 19 18.

McQuiban was commissioned in the R.A.M.C. 
August 191 6 and was attached to the 
50th Indian General 
Hospital at Bombay 
for twelve months. 
In November 191 7 he 
went to Palestine and 
was stationed at an 
advanced post doing 
such good work that 
his CO. declared him 
to be the best worker 
he had under him. 
He died from cardiac 
neuritis in a military 
hospital at El - Arish 
on 2 May 19 18. 

STUART, FRANCIS LEE : Driver, Royal 
Field Artillery; son of Robert Stuart, slater; 
born Aberdeen, 27 
January 1883 ; edu- 
cated Robert Gordon's 
College and Central 
Higher Grade School ; 
student in Arts, 
1904-08. He took a 
keen interest in all 
'Varsity sports, and was 
very popular, possess- 
ing the ready "give 
and take " of the real 
sportsman. In 1908 
he entered the teaching 
profession and held appointments in Bervie, 
Elgin and the Higher Grade School, Aboyne, 
and in all of them proved his ability as a teacher. 
Joining the Royal Field Artillery in January 
191 7, Stuart was immediately transferred to the 
Signal Section, stationed first in Edinburgh and 
then in Aldershot. After a few months training 
he crossed as a First Class Signaller to France, 
and on 3 May 19 18 he was killed at an Obser- 
vation Post, while mending a wire under heavy 
shell fire. 

PHILIP, JOHN ALEXANDER : 2nd Lieu- 
tenant, Royal Field Artillery ; son of James 
Philip, Clayfords, Strichen ; born there, 6 March 
1895 ; educated Strichen Higher Grade Public 





School. He joined the Agricultural Depart- 
ment of the University in 1910 and obtained the 
University Diploma in 
1 91 3, and the National 
Diploma in 19 14. 

While a student he 
was a member of the 
transport section of the 
R.A.M.C., on the out- 
break of war he volun- 
teered for service 
abroad, and in March 
1915 sailed for the 
Dardanelles with the 
89th Field Ambu- 
lance. He went 

through the whole of the Gallipoli campaign and 
gained the rank of Sergeant. After serving in 
France for a time he obtained a commission in 
the Royal Field Artillery in January 1918. Two 
months later he was attached to a Field Battery 
at the Front and while acting as Forward Observ- 
ing Officer on 6 May he received wounds from 
which he died the following day, 7 May 19 18. 
As a student he took a very active part in the 
social side of University life, and as a soldier 
his unswerving honesty and fearless leadership 
won the respect of all ranks.

the City of London College. He died on 13 
May 1 9 18 from the effects of illness contracted 
on service. 

An indefatigable scholar, Alexander Larg had 
acquired a wide range of knowledge of the litera- 
ture and languages of Europe and gave promise 
of a fruitful career. At the time of his death 
he was preparing a thesis for the London M.A.

After graduation 
W r i g h t became as- 
sistant to a doctor in 
Cumberland and later 
practised at Insch and 
Forgue. 

He joined the 
R.A.M.C. as a dis-

illness contracted during service. 

MACDONALD, JOHN : 2nd Lieutenant, 
Royal Garrison Artillery ; son of Alex- 
ander Macdonald, 
crofter ; born Gairloch, 
Ross-shire, 15 October 
1879. After passing 
through the somewhat 
meagre training open 
to the " lad o' pairts " 
in the more remote 
districts of the High- 
lands he proceeded to 
Aberdeen University 
where he graduated 
M.A. in 1902. In the 
following year he was 
appointed Assistant Master in Castle Douglas 
H.G. School, where he revealed exceptional 
ability as a teacher of Mathematics. In 19 10 
he was appointed Mathematical Master in 




Hermitage H.G. School, Helensburgh, a post 
which he held at the date of his death. 
Thoroughly interested in his subject he con- 
tinued his studies and secured in 19 14 the 
degree of B.Sc. (Lond.) with highest honours. 

At the outbreak of war Macdonald, being 
refused permission to serve abroad, joined the 
Dumbartonshire Volunteers and rapidly rose 
from Private to C.Q.M.S. When the need for 
men became acute he joined the Artists' Rifles 
3 May 191 7, and after serving for a few months 
at Romford was transferred to the R.G.A. Cadet 
School, Uckfield, Sussex, whence in March 
1918 he proceeded to France with the rank of 
2nd Lieutenant. He was killed in action 27 
May 1918. 

Macdonald was a man of sterling sincerity 
and uprightness. He gave no half-hearted 
service and tolerated none. His loss is one 
which can never be filled.

Johnson, Haroldswick ; 
born Haroldswick, 
Shetland, 19 October 
1895 ; student in Agri- 
culture, 191 5-1 7. 
Johnson was one of 
the few agricultural 
students of his time 
who made his influence 
felt among the students 
of other faculties with- 
out neglecting the 
affairs of his own de- 
partment where he did 

useful work, particularly as Secretary of the 
Agricultural Society in 1916-17. 

He left in April 19 17 to join the Royal Air 
Force, and after a strenuous nine months training 
as a Pilot was sent to France. He was attached 
to the 43rd, a squadron of single-seater fighting 
'planes, each carrying two quick-firing guns, and 
soon earned a good reputation as a fearless and 
skilful airman. Near Noyon, on 9 June 1918, 
he was reported missing and subsequently pre- 
sumed killed on that date. His Major wrote : 
" He was a great loss to the Squadron, as he 
was a good Pilot and very keen ".

versity in 1 913, and at 
once became a member 
of " U " Company, 4th Gordons. 

On the outbreak of war he volunteered for 
foreign service, but owing to ill-health he was 
unable, to his great regret, to proceed with his 
Company to France. In August 191 5 he was 
commissioned to the 3rd Battalion Gordon High- 
landers, and in July 191 6 was attached to the 
2nd Battalion. With this Battalion he served in 




France until November 191 7, when he was trans- 
ferred to the Royal Flying Corps. In February 
19 18 Henderson graduated as Pilot, and there- 
after was appointed Flying Instructor. He re- 
ceived a commission in the Royal Air Force, and 
at his death had attained the rank of Flight- 
Lieutenant. While acting as Flying Instructor

GILLESPIE, JOHN : Private, 4th Bat- 
talion South African Scottish (Infantry) ;

cardmaker; born 
Stoneywood, Aber- 
deenshire, 17 February

self a teacher of the 
best type, with high ideals of his profession. 
For some eight years he was second master at 
Cults Public School, then filled a post at the 
Training Institute, Morija, Basutoland, and later 
was Mathematical Master at the Boys' High 
School, Rondebosch, Capetown. 

Gillespie was a true pacifist, so sincere in his 
devotion to peace that he felt he must fight for 
her sake. In June 1916 he enlisted in the South 
African Scottish and came home to complete 
his training. After some months in England he 
crossed to France in April 191 7, and saw some 
keen fighting with a Trench Mortar Battery in 
the 9th Division, of which the South Africans 
formed a part. His CO. wrote : " For the 
short time he served in the Battery he made 
many friends, and his loss will be deeply felt 
by all, not only as a friend but also as an excel- 
lent soldier ". He was killed in action while 
serving his guns near Meteren, west of Bailleul, 
12 July 1 9 18, having seen only three months of 
active service.

MURRAY, HERBERT : Captain, 4th Bat- 
talion Gordon Highlanders; M.C. ; 

son of Peter Murray, 
builder ; born NewKills, 
Aberdeenshire, 1 1 De- 
cember 1885 ; edu- 
cated Gordon's C o 1- 
lege. He graduated 
M.A., 1908, and joined 
the teaching staff of 
Gordon's College. 

Early in 1915 he 
enlisted ia the 4th Bat- 
talion Gordon High- 
landers, and after a 
short training was sent 
out to France. From April to June the Bat- 
talion was constantly in action, and he was 
severely wounded and sent to hospital in Eng- 
land. In August of the same year he received 
his commission, and spent about eight months 
as musketry instructor at home. In April 191 7 
he was again at the Front. For his brilliant 
and courageous action during the terrible days 
of March 191 8, he was awarded the Military 
Cross ; and from then till 20 July 19 18, when 
he fell at the Bois de Courton north of Epernay, 
he took part in all the fighting where his Bat- 
talion had so foremost a place. 

The same strong and lovable personality, that 
won him friendship and affection all through life, 
stood the hard test of the battle front, and the 
deeper qualities of unselfish purpose, idealism 
and devotion, helped him to meet with courage 
the greatest test of all. 



PATERSON, CHARLES GORDON : Pri- 
vate, 4th Battalion Gordon Highlanders ; 

M.M. ; son of James R. C. Paterson ; born 
Aberdeen, 18 April ' m 189 7. As a boy of four- 
teen years he was attached to the Pathology 
Department of the University and from there 
was transferred to the Anatomy Department as 
an attendant. Paterson was a bright, frank, 
straightforward lad of a very pleasant and like- 
able disposition, ever ready to perform his duties 
with a cheery smile. 

In November 1915 he enlisted in the Gordon 
Highlanders and after undergoing his period of 



the 




training at Bedford joined in" March 1916 
4th Battalion in France. 
His officers found in f~ 
him an ideal soldier, 
ever cheerful and un- 
complaining and ever 
ready to do his duty. 
On 21 March 19 18 
he was decorated with 
the Military Medal for 
conspicuous bravery 
in the field, and was 
killed in action in 
France 20 Jul)'

he re-enlisted in the 
6th Battalion Seaforth 
Highlanders (his own 

Private in September 19 14. A month later he 
was commissioned in the second line of that 
unit, to which he acted for long as Adjutant, ris- 
ing to the rank of Captain. Like so many other 
second line officers he was, despite all his 
efforts to go overseas, retained on home ser- 
vice, until in June 191 7 he obtained his wish 
and joined his regiment in France. At the 
Battle of Cambrai (November 191 7) he was 
woundecFand invalided home. For his services 
in this battle he was mentioned in dispatches, 
April 19 18. In May he returned to France, 
and on 23 July 19 18 he fell in action near 
Rheims after several days severe fighting when, 
as his Colonel wrote, Mackintosh " had done 
wonders by his coolness and cheeriness under 
circumstances which were as bad as they could

be ". After his death he was again mentioned 
in the King's Birthday List for 191 8. Of great 
clearness of intellect and judgment he might, 
had he been spared, have gone far in his profes- 
sion. 

McHARDY, JOHN : Lieutenant, 4th Bat- 
talion Gordon Highlanders ; son of Alex- 
ander McHardy, 
stationmaster, Ellon ; 
born Inveramsay, 28 
December 1886 ; edu- 
cated Aberlour Public 
School and Gordon's 
College ; entered Aber- 
deen University as 13th 
Bursar, 1905 ; gradu- 
ated with Honours in 
Classics 1909, and 
thereafter joined the 
Staff of his old school, 
Robert Gordon's Col- 
lege. 
He had been four years in the University 
Company of the 4th Gordons, and on 27 April 
191 5' joined his old Regiment as 2nd Lieutenant. 
From November 191 5 till June 191 7 his special 
abilities as a teacher were utilized at the School 
of Musketry, Ripon. Afterwards he served as 
Adjutant of the Reserve Battalion, 4th Gordons, 
till May 19 18, when he was posted to France. 
He had been there only thirteen weeks when he 
fell at the head of his Company at Chaudon, 
24 July 19 1 8. McHardy was a strong person- 
ality at the University, and an excellent soldier 
at the Front, popular with both officers and men, 
holding to a high standard of efficiency, with 
this compelling impulse that since he was a 
soldier he would be the real thing. 

MILNE, WILLIAM: Major, Machine Gun 

Corps ; son of George Milne ; born Boddam, 
14 April 1893 ; matriculated 191 1, graduated 
M.A., 1914. He continued to study Science, 
until the outbreak of war diverted his energies. 

Having joined the R.A.M.C. in 191 o, he ap- 
plied for a commission in a combatant unit and 
in September 1914 was gazetted to the 14th 
H.L.I, and was sent to Aberdeen to recruit for 
his regiment in the North. Although consci- 




entious in his duty he cordially disliked being 
kept at home to point out to others what to him 
was so obvious. After 
training as a machine 
gunner, he succeeded 
in getting abroad as 
M.G. officer with the 
1st Battalion Dublin 
Fusiliers. He served 
through the whole of 
the Gallipoli Campaign 
and went to France 
in time to take part 
in the Somme battles 
in 19 1 6. In recogni- 
tion of his services 

and unflinching bravery in holding an important 
position in Belgium, he was decorated, April 
1 9 18, with the Croix de Guerre by a French 
General, and promoted Major. A few days 
later, on 24 April 1918, he was severely wounded 
and captured at Kemmel Hill. He died as the 
result of his wounds at Soldau, Germany, 25 
July 1 9 18. 

He was of an unassuming nature, as reliable 
in classes as on the football field and as he later 
proved to be on service ; in short, he was one of 
the best. 

BEATTIE, JAMES WALKER: Captain, 
R.A.M.C; son of Alexander Beattie, farmer; 
born H u n 1 1 y , 14 
August 1853 ; edu- 
cated Aberdeen Gram- 
mar School; graduated 
M.B., 1878; M.D., 
1889. While still a 
student, Dr. Beattie 
voyaged three times to 
the Arctic Seas in 
whaling vessels. He 
took up practice in 
Sunderland in 1878 
and his services there, 
especially at the docks 

and the riverside, were of great value and highly 
appreciated. 

At one time Dr. Beattie served in the Durham 
Artillery Volunteers, and he held the Long Ser- 
vice Medal for service in the Sunderland Volun-

teer Life Brigade. At the outbreak of war, 
though much over military age, he joined the 
R.A.M.C., and, on being offered hospital work, 
made personal application to be sent on active 
service. His application was successful. In 
May 191 5 he was appointed to the Hospital 
Ship " Asturias " on which he served during the 
evacuation at Suvla Bay, and also when she was 
torpedoed on her way from Avonmouth to 
Southampton. Captain Beattie was then ap- 
pointed M.O. on the "Warilda," and a fortnight 
before his death was made O.C. of the " Aber- 
donian". He died on 25 July 1918 in his 66th 
year, on board his ship at Southampton. 

His adventurous spirit and high courage would 
not let him accept the less arduous and danger- 
ous lot to which his age entitled him, and Cap- 
tain Beattie will be remembered as the oldest 
son of his Alma Mater to give his life on active 
service in the Great War. 

FORBES, ROBERT ALEXANDER: 
Private, Seaforth Highlanders; 

son of Alexander 
Forbes, M.A., school- 
master ; born Rose- 
hearty, 29 September 
1898; Dux, Rosehearty 
School, 1 9 1 1 ; Dux, 
Gold Medallist, Fraser- 
burgh Academy, 191 5 ; 
8th Bursar, Aberdeen 
University, 1915 ; 
studied in the Faculties 
of Arts and Medicine 
until 191 7, taking high 
places and carrying off 
several prizes. 
He enlisted in the Cameron Highlanders, 
April 19 1 7, and after training transferred to the 
Seaforths. He crossed to France, January 1918 — 
with the 2nd Seaforths. Forbes was in the fight- 
ing during March 1918 and was taken prisoner, 
18 April 19 18, near La Bassee Canal, being one 
of a detachment sent out early in the morning as 
a covering party to a company of Engineers. He 
died at Lille Military Hospital, 27 July 19 18. 

In Rosehearty, where he was born and brought 
up, Bert Forbes was loved and admired. His 
wonderful powers of expression and his whim- 




sical humour relieved many a situation and 
brightened the hours for whatever company he 
found himself in. On the links he was a de- 
lightful and dangerous opponent. He was a born 
student, and he lived long enough to make the 
natural inclination his deliberate choice. Straight 
and clean, with nothing to hide, he had in his 
make-up a certain fineness, a tenderness which 
with his other pleasant qualities lent real charm 
to his personality. It was no wonder that here, 
where his home was, we were so proud of him, 
and expected such great things of him — no 
wonder that we so deeply loved Bert Forbes.

country. In May 19 16 he obtained a commis- 
sion in the R.A.M.C. and was promoted Captain 
in May 191 7. He was attached as Regimental

In March 1918 he was mentioned in dispatches 
for his courage and devotion to duty during the 
retreat of the 5th Army. By his death the

all his work he was brilliant, conscientious and 
painstaking, being destined to reach a high place 
in his profession.

enthusiast in Agricul- 
ture, especially scien- 
tific Agriculture, and 
gave promise of going 
far both in the study 
and practice of the sub- 
ject, but the war came, 
and his efficiency had 
to be diverted to an- 
other channel. 

Cameron was com- 
missioned in the ist Highland Divisional Trans- 
port, A.S.C., in April 19 15, and went abroad 
about a year later. In France he was attached

MURRAY, ALEXANDER: 2nd Lieutenant, 
4th Battalion Gordon Highlanders ; son of 

James Murray, joiner ; 
born Oathlaw, Forfar,

ated M.A., 1906;' As- 
sistant Master, Mort- 
lach Public School ; 
Headmaster, Glen- 
rinnes Public School,

During his absence, 
his wife acted as his 
substitute at Glen- 
rinnes until her death 
in 1 9 18, when Murray, 
being still on active service, resigned his post in 
the School. 

Nothing was further from Murray's thoughts 
than a soldier's life, but in November 19 15 he 
enlisted in the Gordons as a Private and received 
a commission in April 191 7. Whilst on service 
in PVance he saw much heavy fighting, and fell 
in action near Arras on 29 August 1918. 

MARR, ALEXANDER MURRAY : Cor- 
poral, 1st Battalion Royal Scots Fusi- 
liers ; M.M. ; son of 
Alexander M. Marr, sta- 
tionmaster, Tillyfourie ; 
born Peterculter, 19 
April 1897 ; educated 
Kemnay H.G. Public 
School, from which he 
entered the University, 
having gained a bursary 
at the Annual Com- 
&*' Q^ petition. At school 

he was a great favour- 
ite, and it was quite 
evident that he took 
keen delight in his books, for he made marked 
progress in English subjects and in Modern 
Languages. 

After one session at the University, he suc- 
ceeded in joining the 3rd Gordons, having been 
rejected several times for medical reasons. For 




a time he was in the Labour Battalion and 
afterwards was transferred to the Royal Scots 
Fusiliers, acting as a Lewis Gun Instructor. 
His home service, spent at various centres — 
Kinross, Catterick — extended over two years. 
Though repeatedly " turned down " he persisted 
in volunteering for active service, and was at 
last allowed to go to France, where he spent 
six months in the thick of the fighting. He 
gained the Military Medal on 21 August 19 18 
by his splendid work and coolness under fire, 
and was killed in action at Noreuil, 2 Sep- 
tember 1918. No better appreciation of him 
could be given than that written by his Platoon 
Officer : " He was a very good-natured and 
unselfish lad, keen at his work and always 
willing to obey. He was a splendid example 
to his comrades. He made the supreme 
sacrifice with his face to the foe, doing and 
daring for the sake of humanity and his native 
land."

moted Captain early in 19 18. His knowledge 
of chemistry stood him in good stead and he 
proved an excellent and most efficient Gas 
Officer, who enjoyed the confidence of the 
Staff and of all ranks in the Division. He was 
killed by a motor accident while on duty near 
the firing line beside St. Pol, 9 September 19 18. 

WILSON, WILLIAM CHARLES DAVID- 
SOX : Captain, R.A.M.C. ; son of Alexander 
S. Wilson, insurance

Meldrum, 14 Decem- 
ber 1893 ; educated 
Old Meldrum Public 
School and Gordon's 
College ; matriculated 
in Medicine, 1910; 
graduated M.B., 1915. 
As a final year stu- 
dent he served in 19 14 
under Sir H. M. W. 
Gray and the late Dr. 
Lister at a Red Cross 
Hospital in Wimereux, France. Wilson resumed 
his studies in the beginning of 1915 and gradu- 
ated in July of that year. He immediately 
joined the 2/2 Highland Field Ambulance, was 
promoted Captain, and posted Medical Officer 
to the 321st Brigade Royal Field Artillery, then 
stationed at Heydon. In August 191 7 he pro- 
ceeded to Salonika, serving first with the 63 rd 
General Hospital and later with the 81st Field 
Ambulance. At many points of the Salonika 
front he did advanced dressing station work, 
and was finally posted as regimental Medical 
Officer to the 9th South Lancashire Regiment. 
He was killed while dressing wounded in the 
final rush against the Bulgars, 1 8 September 1 9 1 8, 
and was mentioned in dispatches by the Com- 
mander-in-Chief, Salonika Force, in March 191 9. 
Wilson, by his courage, high ability and fine 
sympathy was a general favourite among his 
fellow-officers and men, and won unstinted praise 
from those under whom he served for his bravery 
and high sense of duty. 

LAWSON, WILLIAM: 2nd Lieutenant, 
1st Battalion (attd. 8th Battalion) Royal 
Scots Fusiliers ; son of Robert Lawson, Beau- 




fort Home Farm, Beauly ; born Kiltarlity, 23 
March 1879 ; g°ld medallist of Inverness Royal 
Academy ; took a dis- 
tinguished place in his 
University classes and 
graduated M. A. in 1900 
with First Class Honours 
in Mental Philosophy. 
He was a teacher in 
Nairn Academy, there- 
after in Ayr, first in Rus- 
sell Street School and 
later as First Assistant 
in Newton Park School. 
In 19 1 5 Lawson en- 
listed in the 15th Argyll 

and SutherlandHighlandersand took part in much 
of the hard fighting in France in 1916-17. In 
January 1918 he was gazetted 2nd Lieutenant 
Royal Scots Fusiliers, and spring of the same 
year found him serving on the Macedonian front. 
On 19 September 19 18 he was killed in action 
in the great frontal attack on those practically/ 
impregnable positions west of Lake Doiran. In 
such a shadowy outline one might sketch the 
life and achievements of a mere acquaintance. 
To refrain from adding an appreciation on 
behalf of a most endearing personality would be 
rank ingratitude for the boon of a splendid com- 
radeship. In scholarship he excelled, combin- 
ing with his high natural ability, tireless effort. 
Realizing the responsibility of the calling he had 
chosen, he used his many talents to their fullest 
advantage. Such a sincere, wholesome character, 
too, must have made him in his capacity as a 
teacher an immeasurable influence for good, 
and on children with their hero-worshipping 
natures, his gallant death would have an en- 
nobling effect. 

McFARLAN, JOHN BOYD: Lanee-Cor- 
poral, Argyll and Sutherland High- 
landers ; son of Donald McFarlan, master 
blacksmith; born Gourock, 16 March 1890; 
educated Gourock Central School and Greenock

Cartsburn school, Greenock, in 1913, where he 
taught until he enlisted. 

O w i n g to family 
reasons, and having 
three brothers already 
in the Army, McFarlan 
did not join up till 
191 7. He served for 
seven months at home 
and was then sent to 
Salonika. A little 
more than a year later 
he was killed on the 
Bulgarian front, 19 
September 1918. It 
was reported that his 
Company was cut off from the rear, and that he 
and two others went back to establish com- 
munications — all being killed.

respect of his fellow-officers for his coolness 
in the face of danger. In 191 7 he was men- 
tioned in dispatches for the gallant capture 
of an enemy trench. He fell at Villers 
Guislain on 21 September 1918, while lead- 
ing his men to the attack in the face of 





severe machine gun fire. The Brigadier 
General wrote of him : " He was a most able, 
painstaking, gallant officer, and his untimely 
death is a great loss to his Battalion and his 
Brigade ". 



MORRISON, REV. JOHN: Lieutenant, 1st

Private in the 8th Cameron Highlanders, was 
afterwards commissioned as 2nd Lieutenant in 
the 1st Battalion, and finally became a full Lieu- 
tenant. During part of the years 19 15-17, 
owing to his knowledge of Gaelic, he acted as 
recruiting officer in Inverness-shire, and was 
specially commended by the War Office for his 
services in that capacity. Thereafter he went 
to France, and was killed by a shell near St. 
Quentin on 24 September 19 18. In the words 
of one who knew him well, Morrison was " a 
brave officer and a good man, faithful to his 
calling as minister and soldier ".

landers. Bonner was in hospital for a time 
with trench fever, but rejoined his Battalion on 
24 September and was killed in action at Hav- 
rincourt on 27 September 19 18. The Chaplain 
of the Battalion wrote of him : " He put his 
duty first ; he was eager to do it, active in 
the discharge of it, and to be relied on to do 
it satisfactorily and well. He had the faculty 
of making and keeping friends, and we found 
him a true, loyal and helpful comrade." 

BOOTH, WILLIAM JOHN : Private,

deal of service during the two years he spent qn 
the Balkan front, and died of malaria 28 Sep- 
tember 19 18. Booth had a singularly amiable 
and attractive disposition, and showed exceptional 
ability as a student. He was well versed in 
English literature, and had rare gifts of style and 
expression, combined with, a generosity and big- 
ness of nature which made him wish to share 
with others the richness of his own wide 
reading. 



BEY, WILLIAM : Lieut. -Colonel, New 
Zealand Medical Corps ; son of William 
Bey; born Tarland, 24 August 185 1 ; graduated

few months service at Netley Hospital, he was 
attached to a Battalion of the Royal Fusiliers 
whose varying fortunes he shared for almost four 
years in France, Egypt and Salonika, and finally 
France once more. He was awarded the 





Military Cross at the Battle of Loos, in the dark 
and strenuous days of 19 15. On his return to 
Franca from the East, he was offered an ad- 
ministrative appointment, but preferred to follow 
his old Battalion through the final push. In the 
closing days of the war he met his death by a 
sniper's bullet, when out tending a wounded 
man, 4 October 1918.

in 19 16, and was sent 
to Salonika where he 
served from August

under the Board of Agriculture and Fisheries and 
also worked for a time with Agricultural Tractors.

mission in the Royal Fusiliers, and in October 
1918 became a Paymaster Sub-Lieutenant in the 
R.N.V.R. A few days afterwards he fell a 
victim to pneumonia from which he died 26

the 4th Battalion Gordon Highlanders and 
was mobilized, August 19 14, as a Private, 
After training he pro- 
ceeded to F r a-n c e, 
where he served for a 
year. Silver then re- 
turned home, and en- 
tered the Cadet School, 
Gailes, to train for a 
commission, and in 
January 1918 was 
gazetted 2nd Lieuten- 
ant, Gordon High- 
landers. He crossed 
to France in Septem- 
ber, but his service 
was brief, for after six weeks he was killed in 
action at Douchy, 26 October 191 8. 

KEANE, EDWARD DAWSON : Captain, 

R.A.M.C. ; son of Edward J. Keane, Bombay 

Commissariat ; born 

Bombay, 6 April 1879 ; 

graduated M.B., 1901. 

After graduation he 

held appointments in 

Chalmers' Hospital, 

and Banff Dispensary, 

and later practised in 

London. 

On 22 March 191 7, 
Keane received a com- 
mission in the 
R.A.M.C., being M.O. 
to the 38th Motor 

Ambulance Convoy attached to the Serbian

on 31 October, 19 18.

Royal Garrison Artillery ; son of William 
Walker, schoolmaster, Glentanar ; born Aboyne, 
27 May 1898 ; entered Gordon's College in 19 10 
as First Foundationer. In each of his five years 
he was Dux of his class, probably a unique per- 
formance. He entered the University in 19 15 
as 2nd Bursar, and his brief career was of a 
piece with his school record. 

Walker joined the Royal Garrison Artillery in

IN MEMORIAM. 




July 1916. He was for some time Corporal and 
Instructor in Signalling at Lochend but, at his 
own request, reverted 
and went to Catterick 
for a course of wire- 
less telegraphy. He 
crossed to France in 
August 19 18, and was 
killed in action near Le 
Quesnoy Station on 4 
November 19 18. 

In Robert Walker 
there was a spirit 
touched to the finest 
issues. His was a far 
forward outlook, and 
he turned neither to the right hand nor to 
the left from his fixed course, but duty meant 
everything to him, and in the war he recognized 
a duty that over-rode every other consideration. 
It was not rash boyishness or the illusion of 
adventure that made him hide his age and try 
to join the Gunners in the early months of the 
war, it was because he felt that he ought to 
give his strength, his intelligence and all that was 
best in him to his country in her hour of need. 

DOW, JOHN : Captain, I. M.S. ; son of 

Peter Dow, schoolmaster, Elgin ; born Dallas, 
Morayshire, 14 June

West End School and 
Elgin Academy, after- 
wards at Fordyce 
Academy where he 
was Seafield medallist ; 
graduated M. A., 1910; 
M.B., 1914. He was 
appointed one of the 
House Surgeons at the 
Aberdeen Royal In- 
firmary, which he left 
in the spring of 191 5 
on taking a commission in the R.A.M.C. (T.F.). 
He was gazetted to the 2/ist Highland 
Casualty Clearing Station, from which he was 
transferred a year later with the rank of Captain 
to the Indian Medical Service. In India, he 
served in Peshawar and Kisalpur, and was then 
sent to Mesopotamia where he remained for a 




year, doing valuable and important work con- 
nected with the staffing, equipment and trans- 
port of hospitals. From Mesopotamia he was 
ordered to Persia, where he served for a year 
and a half. While working at an outpost fort, 
Khaneh Zinian, thirty miles from Shiraz, influenza 
broke out. He remained on duty till himself 
stricken with the disease, when he was removed 
to Shiraz where he died two days later — on 5 
November 1918. 

Dow has been described as having " the quiet 
humour of the true Northman," whilst his enthu- 
siasm for his profession was great. 

REID, JAMES MESTON : Major, Royal 

Engineers ; son of Walter Reid, C.A., Aber- 
deen ; born Aberdeen, 
1 o February 1 89 1 ; edu- 
cated at the Grammar

studied chemical engin- 
eering at Aberdeen and 
Glasgow and subse- 
quently in France and 
Germany, and became

outbreak of war he was 
with the firm of Orr's

missioned 2nd Lieutenant in the West Lanca- 
shire RE. (T.F.). 

In June 191 5, after serving in England since 
mobilization, he went overseas and served in 
Gallipoli, Egypt, the Sinai Peninsula and the 
Balkans. For his services at Salonika, where 
he was in temporary command of a Greek Labour 
Battalion, he was mentioned in dispatches. In 
January 1918 he was invalided home suffering 
from malaria, but in June he gallantly volunteered 
again for active service with the North Russian 
Expeditionary Force and was sent to Onega on 
the White Sea, where he was in command of 
fortifications. He died at Archangel on 6 
November 1918 of illness contracted on service. 

Ambitious and self-reliant, Meston Reid could 
have looked forward to a successful career but 
when the war interrupted the work he had chosen,

he threw himself with ready keenness and 
determination into his new task. 

LAW, THOiMAS BRYDON : Surgeon,

M.B., 1892. He held 
various posts as As- 
sistant Medical Practi- 
tioner at Darwen, Al- 
sager and Treharris, 
then, after a year in 
Turriff, he commenced 
practice in Macduff in 
1898. 

Owing to ill-health 
Law had to take a voyage to the East in 19 15, 
and on his return in May 19 16 he joined 
the R.N.T.S., acting as Surgeon on troop ships 
conveying soldiers to and from Australia and 
Canada. Whilst he was on a voyage to Canada 
on H.M.S. " Themistocles," with invalided 
troops, a serious epidemic of influenza broke 
out on board. Dr. Law contracted the disease 
and was advised to give up his work but he in- 
sisted, with typical devotion to duty, on carry- 
ing on, with the result that on arriving at Quebec 
he had to be removed to hospital. Pneumonia 
having supervened, he succumbed thereto on 15 
November 19 18. 

MACRAE, DONALD ALASTAIR : Lieu- 
tenant, 5th Battalion Seaforth High- 
landers (attd. Ma- 
chine Gun Corps) ; 

son of Rev. Donald 
Macrae, B.D., Edder- 
ton, Ross-shire ; born 
Lairg, 26 October 
1 89 1 ; educated Tain 
Royal Academy 
(M u r ray Bursar) ; 
Aberdeen University, 
student in Arts, 1907- 
10 ; Edinburgh Uni- 
versity, student in 
Medicine, 1910-14. 




While in Edinburgh he was a member of the 
O.T.C., and in 1914 joined the Scottish Horse 
-as a Private, from which he transferred, on re- 
ceiving a commission, to the 5th (Sutherland) 
Seaforth Highlanders, August 1915. Proceed- 
ing soon after to France, he served with his unit 
and later was transferred to the Machine Gun 
Corps. He succumbed suddenly on 16 Novem- 
ber 19 1 8 to an attack of influenza, passing away 
at Tournai, Belgium, after having shared in the 
victory consummated by the Armistice. He 
was one of three sons from a Highland manse 
who gave their lives in the war. 

Donald Macrae was a popular personality at 
school, college and in the field, with a great love 
of the open-air and manly pastimes. The war 
found him strong in native grit and courage, with 
instinctive loyalty and patriotism veiled by true 
Scottish reserve. Devotion to duty and keen- 
ness for the fray were his distinctive character- 
istics. 

MILNE, ARTHUR JAMES : Captain, South 
African Medical Corps ; son of William 
Milne, rector, Stellen- 
bosch Academy ; born 
Stellenbosch, Cape 
Colony, 26 October 
1886 ; graduated 
M.B., 1908; D.P.H., 
1909 ; acted as Assis- 
tant House Surgeon, 
Royal Portsmouth 
Hospital.

sioned in the South 
African Medical Corps 
and saw service in 
German East Africa. He died at Fort Johnstone, 
German East Africa, on 7 December 19 18, of

R.A.M.C. ; born Glenbervie, Kincardineshire, 
7 January 1889 ; son of Rev. R. M. Boyd. From

IN MEMO RI AM. 




In September 19 14 Boyd joined the R.A.M.C. 
and was promoted Captain in September 191 5. 
Early in that year he 
saw service in France, 
but unfortunately his 
health broke down ; he 
was invalided home, 
and in 1916 resigned 
his commission. Later 
with improving health, 
and i n d o m i t a b 1 e as 
ever, he set up in prac- 
tice in Braemar, but suc- 
cumbed to pneumonia 
following influenza on 
13 December 19 18. 
While a student Boyd, although of a retiring 
disposition, was well known in the University 
Societies, but " Robin " was known only to a 
small circle of friends, who alone had the 
privilege of knowing his wide knowledge of men 
and books and of enjoying his quiet humour and 
the companionship of his kindly nature. But 
Boyd at his best was seen in that Highland 
glen where he chose to work, and where his 
memory still lingers as the country doctor-— 
"The Lone Man in the Gig" who "brings 
air and cheer into the sick room, and often 
enough, though not so often as he wishes, brings 
healing ". 

TEUNON, JAMES MACANDREW : 2nd 
Lieutenant, Royal Garrison Artillery ; 

son of James Teunon, 
Turriff ; born there, 
22 September 1895 ; 
educated Turriff Higher 
Grade School and Gor- 
don's College ; matricu- 
lated in Arts, 1913. 

He enlisted in the 
2/4A Gordon High- 
landers in November 
1 9 14 and was drafted 
to France in September 
19 1 5, joining the old 
"U" Company of the 
4th Gordons with which he served till wounded 
at the Battle of Loos and invalided home. In 
March 1916 he was transferred to the Royal 




Engineers and again drafted to France. For 
eighteen months he served with the Special 
Brigade, Royal Engineers, taking part in many 
actions on the Western Front. His conspicuous 
ability earned him his commission and in June 
1918 he was gazetted 2nd Lieutenant in the 
Royal Garrison Artillery, but transferred in the 
following October to the Royal Air Force. He 
had just completed his pilot's course at Reading 
when he was taken suddenly ill and died in 
Queen Alexandra Military Hospital, London, 30 
December 1918. 

Teunon had no liking for the monotony and 
routine of the soldier's life, patriotism had made 
him do the thing he loathed for the thing he 
loved — his death seemed specially untimely oc- 
curring as it did so soon after the Armistice. 

BELL, CLIFFORD THISTLETON : Cap- 
tain, R.A.M.C. (T.F.) ; son of Rev. Augustus 
Clifford Bell, Chaplain, 
Church of Scotland, 
Madras Presidency ; 
born Madras, 31 Oc- 
tober 1870; educated 
at Aberdeen Grammar 
School and Gordon's 
College; graduated 
M.B. in 1896. He 
was Resident Surgeon 
and Physician in Gray's 
Hospital, Elgin, for 
about a year, and 
afterwards took up 

private practice in Aberdeen, and was Assistant 
Medical Electrician at the Royal Infirmary from 
1905 to 191 1 ; he was then appointed Senior 
Medical Officer, Oldmill Poorhouse. 

On 21 May 1915 Dr. Bell joined the R.A.M.C. 
with rank of Captain and did duty with the 1st 
Scottish General Hospital (X-ray Department) 
till within ten days of his death. He died in 
the 1st Scottish General Hospital, Aberdeen, 
on 2 February 1919. 

WATSON, WILLIAM : 2nd Lieutenant, 
Royal Field Artillery ; son of William 
Watson, foreman; born Aberdeen, 14 March 
1895 ; educated Robert Gordon's College; ma- 
triculated in Agriculture, 191 3.

IN MEMORIAM. 




After one session as an Agricultural student 
Watson joined the Scottish Horse in September 
1 9 14, being afterwards 
transferred to the 
Veterinary Corps at- 
tached to the 51st 
Highland Division. 
He went to France in 
May 19 1 5 and served 
there till September 
19 16, rising to the 
rank of Sergeant. He 
was then transferred to 
the 60th Division and 
went with them to 
Salonika where after a 
time he contracted malaria and was in hospital 
in Egypt. On recovery he proceeded to Pales- 
tine but was sent home in June 191 8 and after 
training obtained a commission in the R.F.A. 
He was demobilized in the following January, 
but immediately afterwards fell ill with malaria 
and pneumonia and died after a few days' illness 
on 3 February 19 19.

Expedition, 1895. He 
held the post of Civil Surgeon in various big 
Stations in the Punjab, including Simla. 

Colonel Clark retired from India in 19 15 on 
account of ill-health, but as soon as possible 
joined the R.A.M.C. and worked at the 
Home Office in London as Medical referee 
for German civil prisoners. In spring 1918 
he was sent to the Isle of Man in connection 
with the Supervision of German Prison Camps 




and was on duty there till his death in Feb- 
ruary 19 19, working up to the last with charac- 
teristic energy and enthusiasm, in spite of 
very indifferent health. 

STUART, ALEXANDER FORBES: Pri- 
vate, R.A.M.C. ; son of Rev. F. W. Stuart, 
U.F. Church Minister, 
Gartly, Aberdeenshire ; 
born there, 15 March 
1898 ; educated Cen- 
tral Public School, 
Gartly, and Gordon 
Schools, Huntly ; . stu- 
d e n t in Medicine, 
1915-16. He was the 
fourth member of this 
family to enter Aber- 
deen University. 

As a schoolboy, 
Stuart was an enthusi- 
astic Boy Scout and had done service in the 
Cruden Bay neighbourhood before coming up to 
the University, where he joined the O.T.C. On 
14 October 1916 he enlisted in the R.A.M.C. 
and after training was drafted overseas, serving 
first at Salonika and then at Malta. While at 
Salonika the illness which later proved fatal, 
manifested itself and after some time he was 
invalided home and discharged on 8 March 
19 1 9. He died at Noranside Sanatorium, 
Forfarshire, on 21 April 19 19, of illness con- 
tracted while on active service, and is mourned as 
one of those whose enthusiasms were unfulfilled. 




MURRAY, ROBERT 
NER: Captain, 
R.A.M.C. (later 
R.A.F.) ; son of John 
Murray, grocer ; born 
Aberdeen, 23 May 
1886 ; educated Kin- 
cardine O'Neil Public 
School and Gordon's 
College, Aberdeen ;

bank for a special course in sanitation, and 
then to Llandudno as a lecturer to troops. In 
May 1915 he went to France, was wounded 
soon after Loos and returned home, leaving 
again for Egypt in May 19 16. He served in 
Egypt and Palestine with the R.A.M.C. and 
after the Armistice was transferred into the Air 
Force. He died of bronchial pneumonia whilst 
on service in Cairo, 6 May 19 19. 

Mckenzie, Alexander : Lieutenant, 

R.A.M.C. ; son of John McKenzie, wine 
merchant, Abbeygreen, 
Aberdeen ; born Aber- 
deen, 16 February 
1893 ; educated at 
Robert Gordon's Col- 
lege, Aberdeen ; he 
matriculated in Arts in 
1 9 1 o, intending to take

doned the Honours 
course in favour of 
Agriculture, graduating B.Sc. (Agr.) in 1914; 
studied Medicine, graduating M.B. in 1918. 
He excelled as a tennis, cricket and football 
player. 

For a few months he acted as an assistant in 
practice in Aberdeen and in August 1918 he 
joined the R.A.M.C. He was sent to Blackpool 
and about a month later was drafted to Mesopo- 
tamia. He was in ill health and was invalided 
home in April 1919, and on 25 May, he died in 
hospital in Manchester. 

The characteristics of McKenzie's work were 
neatness, orderliness and conscientiousness, there 
was no limit to his patience and perseverance, 
and he had already gained the distinction of 
having graduated in three faculties. 

MINTO, WILLIAM BAIN GRIFFITHS : 
Lieutenant-Colonel, Royal Garrison 
Artillery ; son of William Minto, late Professor 
of English and Logic, Aberdeen University ; born 
Aberdeen, 13 November 1880 ; educated at the 
Grammar School; graduated M.A., 1901 ; stu- 
dent in Law, 1901-03; qualified as Law Agent, 





and became a member of the firm of Messrs. Wil- 
liamson Booth, Mintos & Morrison, Aberdeen. 

Minto served in the 
Volunteer Forces for 
many years before the 
war, being gazetted 2nd 
Lieutenant, 1st Aber- 
deenshire Royal Garri- 
son Artillery (Vol.), 
1900 ; Major (North 
Scottish) R.G. A., 1908. 
He was mobilized on 
the outbreak of war 
and put in command 
of Torry Batter)', Aber- 
deen. From August 

191 6 to August 191 7 he served in France in 
command of the 151st Siege Battery, R.G. A., 
and was promoted Lieutenant-Colonel, 6 August 
1918. On returning to Aberdeen he resumed 
command of the Torry Batter)', and was subse- 
quently appointed Garrison Commander, the 
chief military post in the city. He was awarded 
the Territorial Decoration in May 191 9, and 
died 2 July 19 19 from injuries received while 
firing the peace salute at Aberdeen. 

Minto was a most efficient officer with a 
thorough knowledge of Artillery work. Firm 
and exacting in handling men, he was at the 
same time very popular. He combined great 
organizing ability with social gifts of a high 
order and his frankness, vivacity and bonhomie 
made him welcome in every circle. His speech 
was, like his figure, neat and well-knit and there 
is no doubt that if he had lived to resume 
practice, he would have gained distinction as a 
ready pleader in the courts. There remains with 
all who knew him the memory of a versatile and 
attractive personality. 

MACKIE, JAMES CECIL DAVIDSON: 

Captain, Royal Field Artillery ; son of 

James D. Mackie, solicitor ; born Aberdeen, 
14 March 1892; educated Aberdeen Grammar 
School; graduated M. A., 1912 ; LL.B., 1913.

2nd Lieutenant in the 1st Highland Brigade, 
R.F.A. (T.F.). After six months training at St.

Neots he crossed with his battery to France 
where he served until his demobilization in March 
191 9. He received 
his Captaincy in 19 15, 
and was mentioned in 
dispatches in 191 8. 
His record of ser- 
vice was character- 
ized by courage and 
devotion to duty, by 
loyalty to his fellow- 
officers and by tireless 
thought for the well- 
being of his men by 
whom he was be- 
loved. In March 19 18 
he was wounded and in September badly gassed, 
the effects of which hastened his death. He died 
on 8 August 1919 in Queen Mary's Nursing 
Home, Edinburgh. 

ANGUS, WILLIAM : Lieutenant-Colonel, 
R.A.M.C. ; son of Peter Angus, Aberdeen; 
born Aberdeen, 10

educated Robert 
Gordon's College; 
graduated M.B., 1907 ; 
M.D. (Hons.), 1909;

House Physician in the 
Children's Hospital, 
Great Ormond Street, 
London, and later 
Senior Assistant to the 
Medical Superinten- 
dent of St. Pancras Infirmary. Afterwards he 
served as Assistant M.O.H. at Ipswich and for 
Herefordshire, and at the time of his enlistment 
was Medical Officer of Health for Leeds, and 
Professor of Public Health in the University of 
that city. 

Dr. Angus was refused release for war service 
until June 191 7, when he was detailed for work 
in Egypt and subsequently in Palestine. In 19 18 
he was made A.D.M.S. (Sanitation) with the 
rank of Lieutenant-Colonel, and was charged with 
the special duty of investigation into the causes 
and treatment of malaria, his treatise on that 
subject being published by the AVar Office. He 




was mentioned in dispatches, September 1918, 
and awarded the Order of the Nile, 1919. Dr. 
Angus was released from the Army in 19 19. 
He died suddenly at St. Cyrus on 23 August 
1919 of disease contracted during war service. 

JOLLY, ROBERT: 2nd Lieutenant, 
Gordon Highlanders ; son of Robert Jolly, 
Custom House Officer ; 
born Dundee, 18 May 
1897. Student in 
Medicine, 1919. 

He enlisted in the 
4th Battalion Gordon 
Highlanders, 1 1 Nov- 
ember 1 9 14. After 
training Tolly crossed 
to France in July 1 9 1 5 
where he served till he 
was gassed in Decem- 
ber 191 7. His sub- 
sequent service was in 

home camps in Scotland and England, and he 
gained commissioned rank, 4 February 1919. 
Jolly's death was an aftermath of the war. He 
came up to the University to study Medicine in 
April 19 1 9, but the effects of the illness con- 
tracted at the Front still dogged his steps, and he 
died 26 November 1919. 

FARQUHAR, JAMES: Captain,

was attached to the 

same regiment on the outbreak of war, being 
transferred in July 19 15 to the R.A.M.C. He 
was found unfit for foreign service, but continued 
in the Army until January 19 18, when on being 
invalided out he returned to private practice.

IN MEMORIAM. 




Farquhar never regained his health, but died in 
January 1920 of heart disease, which had been 
considerably aggravated by military service. 

ANDERSON, JAMES ALEXANDER: 
Lieutenant, Royal Gloucestershire Hus- 
sars ; son of William 
Anderson ; born Echt, 

10 March 1884 ; edu- 
cated at Echt Public 
School ; student in Law, 
1 904-05, he gave 
promise of a brilliant 
career in his profession. 

Previous to the out- 
break of war he had 
served in the Lothian 
and Border Horse for 

11 years, and was called 
up on 4 August 1 9 14. 

After serving in France and at Salonika he came 
home, received a commission, and was gazetted 
to the Royal Gloucestershire Hussars (Gloucester- 
shire Yeomanry). The rest of his service was 
passed in Palestine till he returned home in 
1919. He died 6 July 1920, of malaria which 
he had contracted whilst in Macedonia. 

MACLEOD, CLEMENT RICHARD: 
Captain, R.A.M.C. ; M.C. ; son of Rev. 
Robert Macleod 
(alumnus 1862-66), 
senior minister of John 
Knox U.F. Church, 
Aberdeen ; born 2 De- 
cember 1886 ; educated 
Aberdeen Grammar 
School; graduated 
M.B., 1909; D.P.H. 
(Camb.), 191 3. After 
graduation he acted for 
three years as Assistant 
at Alexandria, and there- 
after held hospital ap- 
pointments in London and Birmingham. 

Immediately on the outbreak of war he re- 
ceived a commission in the R.A.M.C., and in 
November 19 14 went to France, being promoted 
Captain a year later and serving for three years 
with No. 2 Field Ambulance, 1st Division. In 
September 191 7 he was awarded the Military 




Cross, the official record stating that " in the face 
of extreme hostile shelling he led stretcher- 
bearers, collecting the wounded and gassed cases, 
and throughout a period of 24 hours displaying 
a coolness and gallantry which directly influenced 
the saving of many lives". In March 19 19 he 
was invalided home. His illness, due to the 
results of his long and arduous period of active 
service, proved fatal and he died at Murtle, 
Aberdeenshire, on 16 November 1920. 

The testimony of his comrades goes to show 
that the whole of his service at the Front was dis- 
tinguished by cheerful and unswerving devotion 
to duty ; fully in keeping with his bravery in the 
field was his imperturbable courage in facing 
what, for many months, he knew to be the in- 
evitable end of his illness.

of Robert Cumming, 




CUMMING, ROBERT 
R.A.M.C. ; M.C; son 

advocate ; born Aber-

(Hons.), 191 5 ; one of 
the most distinguished

the University O.T.C., 
and was commissioned 

in the R.A.M.C. (S.R.), May 19 14. Immedi- 
ately after graduation Cumming was commis- 
sioned in the Regular R.A.M.C., 24 July 1915,

December 191 5 till February 1916, and then in 
France from March 191 6 till February 19 18 when 
he was invalided home. He saw further service in 
India and Mesopotamia, but, never completely 
recovered from the illness contracted through 
exposure on the battlefield, he died in the 3rd 
British General Hospital, Basra, 14 March 192 1. 
The ability which had earned him distinctions at 
the University won him awards in the Army ; he 
gained the Military Cross, 3 May 191 7, and was 
mentioned in dispatches, June 191 7.
