The Perthshire Courier published a photograph of Howard Watson, a 2nd Lt in the RAF - he died on the 8th May 1918 and they reported his death three days later.

Either that same day or shortly afterwards they published his photo. Is anyone in the Perth area able to check the local paper at the time and obtain a copy of that photograph for me? I'll happily reimburse any photocopying costs etc.

This is for a project I'm working on with Lloyds Banking Group, so any help would be most welcome.

David,
I've got his pic and details as he was a Coupar Angus man.He also went to Perth Academy so if you send me your email address in a PM I'll ask Dave Dykes to send you his page on Watson.
Regards
Hugh
