Gunner Pringle Borthwick Canadian Field Artillery 13-Oct-15
http://www.cwgc.org/search/casualty_details.aspx?casualty=664747#

Pringle Borthwick, was one of 6 serving sons of Charles Borthwick of 14 Teviot Crescent, Hawick. He was killed in a Zeppelin bombing raid over Shorncliffe in the south of England. Possibly with the intention of trying to play down the results of these unopposed Zeppelin attacks, Pringle’s death was initially blamed on an accident in the camp.
