Corporal A Driver


Claro Times - 3rd April 1915

On February 20th we published a group of nine photographs of members of the family of Mrs Currie, of Denmark Terrace, who are on service with the Forces. We were pleased to receive the following from Corporal A Driver, 2/8th Battalion Scottish Rifles, stationed at Dudhope Castle Barracks, Dundee, Scotland - "It may interest you to know that instead of nine members of the Currie family on service there are altogether 13, other three more in France, at the base with the motor transport as mechanics, and myself in Scotland, waiting orders to leave at any time with the Scottish Rifle Brigade. We can also go back as far as "The John Adams Company", in India, and later in the Crimea and Indian Mutiny, and find our forefathers well represented. Our great-grandfather was a recruiting sergeant and grandfather was through Sebastopol, Alma, Balaclava, and later passed through the Indian Mutiny".
