Surname: Ross
First Name(s): David
Rank: Sergeant
Regiment: Seaforths
Home Address: Wester Suddie, Munlochy

A GALLANT MUNLOCHY FAMILY

Mr John Ross, Wester Suddie, Munlochy, has given four sons to the colours. One has made the supreme sacrifice, and other two have been wounded. The Rosses are of military stock, the father being an old member of the Militia. Photographs of the four boys are given in this issue.

Private Donald Ross, Black Watch, killed in action on 6th August, 1915, was the second son of Mr Ross, and was 22 years of age. Educated at Avoch Public School he started his career as a forester on the Rosehaugh estate, and in August last he was employed at Braco Castle, Braco. Originally a 4th Seaforth Highlander, having been for some years in C (Black Isle) Company, on migrating south he transferred to the 1/6th Black Watch, and on mobilisation he answered the call. After a period of training he went out with his battalion to France in May, 1915, and was through some of the fiercest engagements since then. He escaped unscathed until he met his end on the morning of the fatal 6th August, thus closing the career of another of that glory-covered regiment – the Black Watch.

Private J. A. Ross, eldest son, Avoch Cottage, Avoch, mobilised with the regiment and went to France in November, 1914. He has been with the battalion until recently, when he came home time-expired. He came through all the engagements in which the battalion took part without receiving a scratch. He anticipated rejoining his comrades shortly.

Sergt. David Ross, the youngest son, joined the county territorial regiment before the war, and answered the call in August, 1914. He proceeded to France and was wounded on 31st March, 1915. It was then found out he was under age and he was sent to a Provisional Battalion.

Private Hugh Ross, the third son, joined the county regiment in November, 1915, and was trained at Ripon. He was on the 24th July last wounded in the hand, and was in Stobhill Hospital, Glasgow, for a considerable time. He has now rejoined the Reserve Battalion.

A cousin of these four boys, Private D. Ross, Seaforths, was killed on May 9th, 1915. He was a blacksmith, and resided at 2 High Street Rosemarkie.
