Harvie, William Coleridge
Clerk who enlisted as a private in the 14th Reinforcement, 18th Battalion and served in France. He suffered a gun shot wound to his leg in August 1916 and was transferred to England. He was ill and transferred to England again in March 1917. He proceeded to Camiers, France in May 1917 and was admitted to hospital with trench fever two months later. He was reported missing in action in October 1917 and was later found wounded having been exposed to poisonous gas. He spent time in hospital and training camps in England before he was sent back to Camiers. In May 1918, he was admitted to a field hospital with diarrhoea and rejoined his unit before he was 'struck off strength' in January 1919.
