brodie Posted 18 February , 2018 Share Posted 18 February , 2018 Peter Thomson from Edinburgh was a Lance Corporal in the 202nd Protection Co of the RDC (No 16025). He died on the Scottish island of Raasay on 15th Nov 1917 as a result of a lung haemorrhage following a gunshot wound. This is shown on his death certificate. I’ve established that he was probably on Raasay guarding German POWs housed there to work in a mine. But I can’t find anything to explain how he got shot. Does anyone have any idea where there might be some record of the incident? No trace in Scotsman newspaper archive. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
