Toll of the war

Campbeltown Courier - - NEWS -

We re­gret to record the death, on 2nd Novem­ber, from wounds re­ceived in ac­tion on the pre­vi­ous day, of Sec­ond Lieu­tenant James Dun­lop, Royal Scots Fusiliers, fifth son of the late Mr John Dun­lop, fore­man joiner with Messrs Robt Weir and Sons, Camp­bel­town, and Mrs Dun­lop, 26 Granville Street, Glas­gow. Be­fore the war Lieu­tenant Dun­lop had just qual­i­fied as a char­tered ac­coun­tant. He be­gan his busi­ness ca­reer by en­ter­ing the of­fice of Mr Thos Mack­elvie, so­lic­i­tor, Camp­bel­town, to whom he dis­charged the du­ties of a clerk for one year with the high­est sat­is­fac­tion. He served his ap­pren­tice­ship with Messrs Fer­gu­son and Vost, char­tered ac­coun­tants, Glas­gow, and passed his CA ex­am­i­na­tion with dis­tinc­tion. Hav­ing com­pleted his ap­pren­tice­ship he, in 1915, vol­un­tar­ily joined the Glas­gow Yeo­manry, with which unit he was on ser­vice in France. Later, on re­ceiv­ing his com­mis­sion, he was gazetted to the Royal Scots Fusiliers, and re­turned to France in Au­gust last. He gave ev­ery prom­ise of a bril­liant ca­reer, and his death is deeply mourned both in civil­ian and in mil­i­tary cir­cles. The heart­felt sym­pa­thy of this com­mu­nity and of friends ev­ery­where will go out to the be­reaved fam­ily cir­cle in their great loss.
