Courier & Advertiser Friday 21st October 2011: CRAIGIE column:

Somme historian tracked down George's grave:

Broughty Ferry reader BOB PATERSON writes "When wandering through BARNHILL CEMETERY recently I noticed a headstone - showing that a GEORGE TULLIS had fallen at the Battle of The Somme in September 1916 and had been buried at ALBERT in the department of the SOMME in France . "
Bob, who is a Somme historian and chairman of the Western Front Association Tayside , comments "These inscriptions were popular at the time as the fallen were never brought home and were buried on the battlefields.

"I go to the Somme quite a lot so a few weeks ago whilst visiting the area. I took the opportunity of finding the grave of GEORGE .

"GEORGE (28) was a member of the 42nd battalion Canadian Infantry and is actualy buried not at Albert but at COURCELETTE , a small village where fierce fighting took place , about six miles away from Albert. George probably emigrated to Canada but here he was fighting for the cause ."

(Photograph shown in the newspaper shows part of the headstone with the following wording " In Loving Memory of our SONS

GEORGE THOMSON TULLIS . 42nd CANADIANS

who fell in action on the Somme 1916
INTERRED IN ALBERT , FRANCE

AGED 28 YEARS

"ONE OF THE BRAVE "
