Private Thomas Howieson McIntosh  S/25944, 2nd Battalion Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders

Thomas Howieson McIntosh was born at Fingask, Kilspindie on the 19th November 1900.  Like his brother, George, he was educated at Kinnaird School and then worked on the land.  He enlisted on the 15th May 1918 and in a very short time was facing the shells in France.  He was involved in the “great British advance” in October 1918, which was instrumental in bringing an end to the war.  Private Thomas Howieson McIntosh met his death on the 10th October 1916; his battalion was preparing to go forward near Valenciennes, when he was killed by the bursting of a shell beside him.  Thomas is buried at Selridge Cemetery in Montay.  He was 18 years of age.  He was awarded the Victory and the British War medals.
