An interesting gravestone for two brothers who served with the Canadians. They both enlisted in September 1914 and their service numbers are only a few apart. Private 18386 Alexander Peattie was born in London in 1888 as Paul Alexander Peattie. His brother Private 18382 George Reid Peattie was born in Kirkcaldy in 1894. By 1901 the family were living in Kenmore, Perthshire where the father (Paul Peattie) was a painter and decorator. In 1911 they were in Annan.
The inscription reads "Pte. P. Alex. Peattie DCC 1st Canadians who fell mortally wounded at Armentieres, France 24th Feb. 1915 aged 26 years.
The first Canadian Volunteer killed by a German bullet.
Pte. George R. Peattie, his brother, 1st Canadians who felll at the crossing of the Canal du Nord on the 28 Sep. 1918 in his 24th year. Buried near Arras, France after 4 years active service."

The base stone is inscribed with crossed rifles, with a crown and the word Infantry, on a maple leaf.



It is likely that the phrase "the first Canadian volunteer to fall" refers to the the 1st Canadian Division as the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry were in action and took casualties in January 1915.
However the brothers were amongst the first and last Canadian fatalities of WW1.

Don't understand this one Confused
There is a poppy in the vase, two In Remembrance crosses and the inscription "He shall....... as we that are left grow old...."etc
but no mention of military service anywhere.
In fact the details for David Campbell who died in July 1938 are "iffy"
He died of TB in the Dumfries & Galloway Sanatorium in Lochmaben, Dumfriesshire and not in Annan!

Anyone recognise the second cross (with the blue centre)???
