ONE HUNDRED YEARS AGO Saturday November 9, 1918
Toll of the war
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.
