Grave/Memorial Reference:
Cemetery:

David McKelvie a native of Glasgow, but who for six years prior to enlisting was surveyor of mines for the united Collieries Company Armadale District. He enlisted in September 1914 with the 9th (Glasgow Highlanders) Highland Light Infantry, and he went to France in November 1914. Due to his background as a Mining Engineer, he was transferred to the Royal Engineers with the rank of Lieutenant.

In November 1914 David wrote a letter to the Bathville office where he had many friends in it he says that the trench he is lying in is a terrible hole, the worst place in no7 Pit, even a sump hole is a Palace compared with it.

In late April 1915 David returned to Armadale on a weeks leave in order to get rigged out in accordance with his rank as a Lieutenant in the Royal Engineers, to which he had been promoted. While in no way inclined to dwell upon the operations at the front, he makes no bones about expressing the fact that the folk at home have simply no conception of what war means.

It was while at Loos in September 1915 he gained the Military Cross for especially successful work in cutting and firing mines in enemy territory.

MC. (LG 00/01/1916)
For the admirable manner in which he carried out the arduous and dangerous work of laying four mines under the German trenches, south of hooge. The long period of delay in exploding the mines placed a very heavy strain on those concerned, but due to the keenness and vigilance the operation was an unqualified success, and the success of yesterdays (25th September, 1915) operations was greatly due to the work so admirably performed.

David was so badly knocked about with the shock of bursting shells that he suffered from heart strain, and had been relieved from his duty.

Temp. 2nd Lt. D. McKelvie, M.C., relinquishes his command on account of ill health and is granted the hon. rank of 2nd Lt. 9th June, 1916.

David received his discharge from the Army and returned to his old duties at Armadale again, and sat the examination for the certificate of first class colliery manager, and succeeded, shortly afterwards he was appointed manager of Uddingston Colliery.

He contracted a chill, and this followed by an attack of double pneumonia. He succumbed after a few days illness.

David was due to be married in October 1918, but unfortunately he died the month prior, David is noted as being one of the most likeable young men that one could meet, and he had a great host of friends who were deeply grieved at him being cut down in the full bloom of manhood.


Prior to enlisting David was employed as principal surveyor at the United Collieries, Armadale District, he appears on The United Collieries Limited, active service roll 1914-19, this shows him as being employed at Bathville Colliery.
