Biography

Lieutenant Lindsay visited Peterborough East Station on the night of 10/11 June 1916 and wrote in the visitors’ book “In keen appreciation, for kindness and sympathy bestowed on June 10th &11th 1916”; he also refers to the ‘epitaph on the tomb to the wife of Robert Kirk’, Balquhidder.

Stones weep tho’ eyes were dry
Choicest flowers soonest die
Their sun oft sets at noon
Whose fruit is ripe in June
Then tears of joy be thine
Since earth must soon resign
To God what is divine

We have been unable to trace any information on Lieutenant Lindsey. Did he originate from the Balquhidder area – can you help identify this officer?
