6 January 1917 Edition of the Newtownards Chronicle
In the 6 January 1917 edition of the Newtownards Chronicle a Roll of Sacrifice for the town was published:
- 101 officially reported dead
- 10 died from disease contracted on service
- 52 men reported missing
- 14 prisoners of war
The names of those men who had been killed in action or who had died of wounds were listed and below those names there was a list of ten names of men who had died from disease contracted on service.
The name T. Scott was included in that section.
Rifleman Thomas Scott (No. 13/2369) enlisted in September 1914 and was posted overseas on 5 October 1915 with the 13th Battalion Royal Irish Rifles in 108th Brigade of the 36th (Ulster) Division.
Rifleman Thomas Scott (No. 13/2369) was discharged from the Army on 11 October 1916 because of disease.
Desk searches and public appeals to date have not confirmed a connection between these service data and the soldier whose name was listed in the Roll of Sacrifice published in the 6 January 1917 edition of the Newtownards Chronicle.
