"Ninth Blairgowrie Soldier Killed"
"In the list of casualties published on Monday appears the name of Pvt. David Waddell. 2nd Black Watch, who makes the ninth Blairgowrie soldier killed during the War. David was a Glasgow orphan, and was boarded out in Blairgowrie, where he served his apprenticeship as a baker with Mr. J. Richardson, High Street, who all along took a very kindly interest in the lad. He had, however, a notion to be a policeman and offered his services, but was too young, and he accordingly enlisted with the idea of remaining seven years to the Army and subsequently entering the Police Force. With his regiment he went to India, and was through the Abor campaign; and on the outbreak of the present War his regiment was draughted to France where he had since been in the fighting line. Deceased was about 24 years of age.
