Bertram Wilkie TAWSE,
RGC: 1897‐1901 [2830]
Rank: Sergeant
Regiment: 4th Battalion, Cameron Highlanders
Biography: Born Aberdeen, 14 September1884, son of Peter Tawse, Contractor, of Cattofield House, Aberdeen; educated at Kemnay Public School and entered Gordon's College at age of 12, along with his younger
brother James; Awarded a 2 year Foundation; entered the University of Aberdeen 1901; graduated M.A. (II Math.), 1905; B.Sc., 1906.
After graduation he opened a Civil Service and Business College in Inverness, and this venture was proving itself a conspicuous success when war broke out. During his University career, Bertram Tawse was a member of "U" Company. In August 1914 he enlisted in the 4th Camerons and went to France with the Battalion, rising to the rank of Sergeant and doing excellent work as a N.C.O. He fell in action at the Quarries, Hulluch, on 26 September 1915. Of a retiring disposition, Tawse never, either at the University or in the Army, took the place to which his undoubted ability as scholar, teacher and soldier entitled him. The greater self‐confidence which time would have given him was all that was needed to bring him to a foremost place in his profession.
Date of Death: 26 September 1915
Burial Details: Name recorded on the Loos Memorial, Panel 119, Column 2.
and on War Memorial of Rubislaw Parish Church, Aberdeen.
