Other Information:

Archibald was educated at Annan Academy, and served his apprenticeship as a clerk in the office of Messrs R Robinson & Sons, Provost Mills, Annan. He afterward emigrated to Australia. On the outbreak of war he returned to Scotland and was appointed representative for Mr Bell, potato merchant, Annan, in Newcastle and the Midlands. He enlisted into the R.A.M.C. on 13th August 1914, being 22 years and 6 months of age. He joined at Penrith the same day. After training, on 15th January 1915, he joined the 63rd Field Ambulance. On 19th June 1915 he embarked on “S.S. King Edward” at Southampton, then disembarking the next day at Rouen, entered the war in France on 20th June 1915. The following 5th July, he was posted to the 3rd Division’s Assistant Director of Medical Services, in the field, and was subsequently attached to the 8th Field Ambulance. He was admitted into the 9th Field Ambulance on 28th January 1917, with an injury to his left foot and was transferred to No 29 Casualty Clearing Station, where he remained until the 11th February, when he returned to his unit. When Archibald was killed, his Lt Col wrote to his family "I am more than sorry that his has occurred, for since he has been with this unit, I found him a good, willing. and hard-workig orderly/ There is a great consolation in knowing that he died doing his duty. I hope you will accept my deepest sympathy and that of his comrades." Archibald was the second son of Bailie and Mrs E H Douglas of 2 Church Street, Annan.
