Biography contributed by Stephen Brooks

Dougald McDougall’s father died in 1906, when he was 12 years of age. Dougald’s widowed mother stated on his roll of honour circular, “He was killed in France, and I myself would like to know the place. His brother Douglass McDougall 36th Battalion was killed in action in France 7 June 1917.”

Dougald was actually killed in Belgium and his remains were found near Zonnebeke in 1926 and interred in the Dochy Farm New British Cemetery, Belgium.
