DEATH OF PRIVATE 
ALEXANDER ARNOT

Mr. George Murdoch, Principle of the Technical School, informs us that Private Alexander Arnot of the second Seaforth Highlanders, was killed in action in Flanders on 25th April. The deceased, who originally belonged to the Rosehill District, was a miner, and attended the mining class at the Technical School. Since he went out with the Expeditionary Force he had sent home a series of descriptive letters to Mr. Murdoch, in which he portrayed in fine easy style, the daily doings of a soldier in the fighting line. Several of these, our appreciative readers will recall, were reproduced in “The Leader” by the courtesy of Mr. Murdoch, and all showed decided literary talent, as well as a fine soldier-like sense of duty. Private Arnot, who was 32 years of age, was married and resided in Rawyards.
