Very interesting the David was living with Uncle. Is there anything special about Dalbeattie school that he would be there, or can anyone think of a reason why he might be living away from parents?

Mike


Might be because his father was the Rector that he wasn't allowed to attend Aberfeldy Academy? or didn't want to???

One more bit of info.
On 21 April 1885 Alexander Grieve, a Teacher of Grindley St. Edinburgh, married Martha Margaret Clark of Burnside Cottage Dalbeattie, at Burnside Cottage, Dalbeattie.

I'll try to find out if Alexander was a teacher at Dalbeattie School.

I had a very interesting chat with a woman who remembers Rector Grieve. Said he was a really nice chap. She also informed me, that a member of Alex McLaren's family is still alive, and I will be able to have a chat with him soon. Really look forward to that.

THE LAST POST


The funeral took place on Monday from his home in Chapel Street, Aberfeldy to Kenmore Churchyard, of Private A. Farquhar M'Kinnon, of the West Yorkshire Regiment. Private M'Kinnon, who was twenty-one years of age, had been wounded and badly gassed in March, 1918, when on active service in France. He had never fully recovered from the effects of the gas poisoning, and had passed through a long illness. There was a representative attendance of the Aberfeldy Branch of the Comrades of the Great War at the funeral.

Excellent Dhubthaigh. I haven't been here for a while, and have just noticed this. I was in touch with a relative in Australia who could I'm afraid add no more details, he did however put me in touch with a close living relative-who lives opposite me. Unfortunately, he has no information on the man either.

Thanks for that, and all your hard work here.

As usual while looking for something else I have just found this in the Dumfries and Galloway Standard of 18 April 1917 page 2b

It is announced that Lieutenant D. C. Grieve, second son of Mr. A. Grieve, Rector of Aberfeldy Academy, and nephew of Mr. David Clark, Craig Rathan, Colvend and Baillie Clark, Dalbeattie, has been killed in the advance in France.
Lieutenant Grieve who was 25 years old was educated at Aberfeldy, Dalbeattie and Edinburgh University......

(a couple of para's about Canada - then)
.... He has two brothers in the service, Dr. Barrie Grieve a Lieutenant in the Royal Navy and Private Donaldson Grieve, London Scottish.

On the 1901 census David, age 10, was living with his uncle David Clark at Burnside Cottage, Dalbeattie.
He is listed, as Lieut. David C. Grieve, Canadians on the Dalbeattie War Memorial http://warmemscot.s4.bizhat.com/viewtopic.php?t=399
and as Grieve, David C. on the Dalbeattie Higher Public School Memorial.
http://warmemscot.s4.bizhat.com/viewtopic.php?t=5349


Just to update now that his service record is on line.

David was a former pupil of the Dalbeattie Higher Grade Public School and in 1901, aged 10, he was living with uncle, David Clark, at Burnside Cottage, Dalbeattie. He was also educated at Aberfeldy and at Edinburgh University, where he was a student of the Arts and a member of the Officer Training Corps until December 1910. He took up a post in Montreal with the Royal Bank of Canada in January 1911 and had been a member of the local militia for over three years when he enlisted as a Private (24670) at Valcartier, Quebec in September 1914. He sailed with the 13th Battalion from Quebec in October and landed in France in February 1915. He was promoted to Sergeant and wounded in April 1915. He was wounded again in June 1916 and after treatment at the 7th Stationary Hospital in Boulougne he was evacuated to the Endsleigh Palace Hospital in London. While he was recovering he was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant and returned to the 13th Battalion in France in October 1916.
Born 1890 at Aberfeldy, Perthshire. Son of Alexander Grieve, Rector of Aberfeldy Academy, and of Martha Margaret (Clark) Grieve of Craignair, Aberfeldy who had married in Dalbeattie in 1885.
