KILLED IN ACTION
FRANCE & FLANDERS

THE STRATHEARN HERALD: 15.07.1916
PERTH OFFICER'S DEATH - CAPT. ROWLAND FRASER, INVERMAY


It was with much regret that Perth people learned of the death in action of Captain Rowland Fraser, Rifle Brigade, third son of Mr John M. Fraser, of Invermay, Forteviot, head of the firm of Messrs Macdonald, Fraser & Co., stock salesmen, Perth. Only a few weeks ago he obtained a short leave from the front, and was married at Invermay on 20th June to Miss Mary Dorothy, second daughter of Mr T. H. Ross, Quirindi, New South Wales. Captain Fraser returned to France soon after, and fell in action on Sunday, the 2nd inst., exactly twelve days after his marriage. He had a distiguished record at school, college, and university. Born at Perth about 26 years ago, he attended the Academy, and afterwards went to Merchiston College, Edinburgh, and subsequently to Cambridge University. He was an M.A. of Cambridge University, and in civil life a member of the legal profession, and was in the offices of Messrs Guild & Guild, W.S., Edinburgh. He joined the Army shortly after the outbreak of war, and had been on active service for about eighteen months. Other two brothers are also serving with the Colours. In football and cricketing circles the deceased officer was well-known. He was at one time captain of the Merchiston Castle cricket eleven, and also played for the Grange and Perthshire. He was captain of the Cambridge Rugby team, and was a Scottish internationalist. His brother, Mr W. Lovat Fraser, is the captain of the Perthshire Cricket Club.

Also commemorated;

Forteviot Parish WW1;
http://warmemscot.s4.bizhat.com/viewtopic.php?t=3404&highlight=forteviot

I would assume he is commemorated on the Cambridge University Roll of Honour and somewhere in respect of his legal profession?
However, he is not listed at Perth Academy which is strange indeed. Unknown at this time whether there is any memorial(s) for Perthshire Cricket Club.
