Mr and Mrs Young, Upperwood Farm, Poyntzfield, have received intimation that their youngest son, Lce.-Cpl. James Young, Seaforths, has been killed in action. He was only 19 years of age, and joined the Army in July, 1916. He underwent training at Newton Camp, Cromarty, which he left for France only six weeks ago. Lce.-Cpl. Young was a soldier of great promise. A splendid shot, he also possessed many other qualities which would have won for him rapid promotion in the Army. As member of the local Good Templar lodge, he took a keen interest in temperance work, and his happy and cheerful disposition made him greatly loved by all who knew him. His eldest brother, Lce.-Cpl. John Young, went through the Gallipoli campaign with the Scouts, and is now serving in France with the Camerons. The sympathy of the whole community is extended to Mr and Mrs Young and family in their great sorrow.
