Dundee Courier


Colonel Maitland, commanding officer of the 1st Battalion Sportsman Royal Fusiliers, is desirous of securing 200 Scotsmen to bring his battalion up to strength. Private James McRitchie, who is a native of Coupar Angus, is making a tour of Dundee and district with the view of obtaining recruits. Yesterday Private McRitchie was in attendance at Dundee, when he secured about half-a-dozen names of men who were willing to join.
