A brother Officer wrote :—
"He was much loved and respected by the Officers and men of his
Battalion. I have often heard the Colonel and his Company Commander,
both of whom were killed, express very high opinions of the work he did
in the trenches. When we were at Vimy Ridge, he carried out several
daring and useful patrols, for which he was highly commended by the
Colonel. The men of his Platoon would have done anything for him, and
he was untiring in looking after their welfare."
His elder brother, Second Lieutenant W. E. B. Dunlop (O.R.), The
Border Regiment, was killed in the Battle of Arras on May I9th, 1917.
His record will be found in Vol. V of these Memorials.
