I came upon this whilst looking for something else in the 9 March 1916 edition of the Wigtownshire Free Press.

It carried a photograph of David Dundas and reported:

The "Fraserburgh Herald" on 29th ult says: Mr DC Dundas, Schoolhouse, Inverallochy, on Saturday received the sad intelligence that his son, Sergt David W Dundas, 2nd Gordon Highlanders, was killed in France on Sunday 20th inst, his 27th birthday. In October last Sgt Dundas had his hand smashed in action and it was only recently that he returned to the front. The tidings of his death have been received from a comrade who assisted to bury him. Sergt Dundas was a splendid soldier, and was recommended for the Victoria Cross two days before he fell. He was well known in the fish trade, having been for a number of years a fish salesman with Messrs Noble & Co, Fraserburgh. Sergt Dundas was well known in Stranraer having represented Messrs Noble and Co there during three fishing seasons, and his death will be felt by a wide circle of friends in the neighbourhood.

In her very helpful notes about Henry Will (above) Anne Park refers to a photo of Henry Will's grave having been taken in Nov 2010.

Henry was my great-uncle, and if Anne(or anyone else) can say where I can get a copy of that photo I would be very grateful. Thanks.
