DUNDEE COURIER: 19.05.1917

Very early for a war memorial, particularly a stained glass window, to have been installed and dedicated.

As the window was unveiled in 1917 it only lists the 11 who died up to that date.Once i receive the pics of the memorial plaque and can find details of the unveiling we can hopefully reconcile the different names and identify the right men!

That would be good - cause it has been puzzling me, especially the Fergusons Confused
There's a very full bio on the first man (Tosh) at
https://www.facebook.com/firstworldwarrelatives/posts/891762227518395

But who is the second man (Grant) Rolling Eyes

Emslie Tosh is listed on Lodge St. Ninan 732 War Memorial, Alyth, Perthshire but no idea why he was a member there rather than nearer Dundee area.

James Muirhead Grant potentially a non comm.

His service file is at NA. An outlay, and a gamble, for DC and Service Record for cause of discharge and death to match.

London Gazette
Publication date:13 August 1918 Supplement:30844Page:9549

CAVALRY.
Hrs.—Temp. Lt. (actg. Capt.) J. M. Grant, M.C. relinquishes his commn. on account of ill-health, and is granted the hon. rank of Capt. 17th Aug. 1918.


Mark - in view of all the supporting evidence, I believe that Terry at IFCP should gather the remaining documentation (Service record, Death cert.) for what is clearly a non-comm case.
The time scale between discharge (August) and death (September) is especially convincing.

I will ask. I'm never sure what the IFCP take on financially as opposed to an individual providing the documentation at their own expense.
