Angus Murch

Angus became a Serjeant in the Gordon Highlanders and died at the Somme in 1916.

Angus became a Serjeant in the Gordon Highlanders and died at the Somme in 1916.

Angus was born in 1894. There is a death record in the First World War for an A. Murch (5 September 1916, Somme, France), Serjeant in the Gordon Highlanders, number 385.

How sad - his younger brother Livingstone was drowned on HMS Flirt and it says his brother was notified - but Angus had died six weeks earlier...

23 September 2014: His name was read out on the 'Roll of Honour' for 'The Tower Remembers'. 
Reader: Yeoman Warder Rob Fuller
Last Post: Drummer McKenna
A long list of names was read out, including (at about 15 minutes)
Livingstone MURCH
Eli BALL
Walter Harold BALL
A MURCH (probably Angus)
Then came the verse from the poem by Laurence Binyan 'For the Fallen':
*They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
***Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
****We will remember them.
Then the Last Post was played.
