THE STRATHEARN HERALD: 09.12.1916
CALLANDER CASUALTY


Mr Duncan Taylor, Victoria Buildings, Callander, has been informed that his son, Private Duncan Taylor, Black Watch, has died of wounds in a hospital in France. Before enlisting Private Taylor, who was only 20 years of age, was employed as a joiner with Messrs MacNiven & Smith, Callander.

I think I have him on SNWM;

Service Number 3389
Date Death 13/11/1916
Decoration
Place of birth Callander Perthshire
Other 6th Bn.
SNWM roll THE BLACK WATCH (ROYAL HIGHLANDERS)
Rank Pte
Theatre of death F.& F.

But I can't find him on CWGC.

Additional information: Son of Mary Taylor, of Victoria Buildings, Callander, Perthshire, and the late Duncan Taylor.

Now that is bizarre. Put in D. Taylor - doesn't show. Put in G Taylor and he appears Duncan Taylor. Confused
Thank you.
