Alexander Bakie Mowat - 1890 -1916 Dog Tag 1

The Dog Tag of Alexander Bakie Mowat - My GG Uncle - Killed in June 1916 France. A native of Caithness, Scotland emigrated to Canada and in 1914 joined the the 16th Canadian Regiment - made up of Canadian Highlanders.

A cousin of mine has his medals, and I must get a photo of them. As with large familes of that time, he was only 8 years older than my Grand Father, who served in the Royal Flying Corps in WW1.
