Loving Memory Of

Private James WILKIE

1st Scottish Horse

Died April 10th 1916

Aged 22 Years


James was a warehouseman from Dundee.(Scotland National Probate Index)


Burial no.NC 355.




On 26th May 2021 Gavin took his mother Elizabeth, who was visiting from Scotland, to see if they could find James's grave. Eventually they got help from the Chapel team and they found the small private headstone which has been there since August 1916 of Private James Wilkie. Gavin has kindly shared some information written by his mother.


"James was the eldest of 3 children, he had a sister Elizabeth and a brother William who was my grandfather. They lived in Dundee. He was shot and wounded in the Dardanelles in 1916. He was shipped home to Southampton Military Hospital. His mum, my great granny managed to travel from Dundee to see him before he died. My father, James Ross Wilkie, was born in 1926 and was named after his uncle who had died. My father died in 2016 but it was only recently this year that I found the original invoice for James' headstone in my father's papers that I knew where to find his grave".


"My mum was quite emotional finding the grave stone today as my grandad had previously said one of his regrets in life was never visiting the cemetery (they lived in Dumfries, Scotland) and my mum was very close to her Dad and took his and my gran (also Elizabeth Wilkie's) deaths hard in 2016, so it was emotional for her finding the grave of the original Jimmy Wilkie today."
