100 YEARS AGO
On Sunday morning Mrs David Gibson, Ford Street, Catrine, had a letter from her son Pte Andrew Gibson, H. L. I, informing her that he had been awarded the Military Medal for good conduct and gallantry in attack.
Pte Gibson is 19 years of age. He joined the Army in April 1915 and has been 18 months on active service. He is a brother of Lance Corporal Geo Gibson, H. L. I. reported wounded last week. Catrine folks are proud of the gallant young soldier and contratulate him on his honourable award.
