Captain Arthur Begg,Lincolns is listed Dundee Ward Chapel Congregational and on Dundee Roll of Honour
CWGC lists as kia 21/3/1918
4th Norfolks attached to 2/5th Lincolns.
I cannot find any definite connection to Dundee although an Arthur Begg,born 1880 attended Dundee High School from 1889.
Seems likely to be the same person but can anyone supply any more definitive info?
Thanks and Merry Xmas to everyone with thanks for all the help this year
Hugh

Have not been able to find anything on him in any Dundee papers yet.Seems possible that he was not living in Dundee pre war and that Adelaide Place was his mother`s address.Can anyone find his age or other details so that i can possibly tie him down?
