One of the more illustrious names on the Dumbarton Memorial is of Captain William McLeod McMillan who was killed at the Battle of Loos on the 25th or 26th September, 1915. He was a captain in the 11th Battalion of the Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders and died at the age of 39. He was the eldest son of Robert McMillan, shipbuilder in Dumbarton and at the time of his death was chairman and managing director of the family firm, Archibald McMillan and Son, Ltd. In 1904 Captain McMillan had married Catherine Young Denny, daughter of James Denny, shipbuilder, a director of the other major shipbuilding family in Dumbarton, William Denny and Brothers, Ltd. Captain McMillan was survived by his widow and two sons.
(Obituary in Lennox Herald, 9 October, 1915)
