L/Cpl. William Turnbull

200483 Lance Corporal William Turnbull was born in Portree, the son of Thomas and Chaterine Turnbull. His father was the Registrar in Portree. He worked in his father's business and volunteered his services at Inverness shortly after the War broke out in August 1914.

He went off to France in 1915 and was killed in action at Festubert on 17 May 1915. His body was not found until August 1915 and seems to have been subsequently lost as he is commemorated on the Le Touquet Memorial to the missing in France.

He was aged 29 years.
