Engineer-Artificer John S. Ross, R.N.R.,who was killed in the naval action off Jutland on May 31, was in his 23rd year. The third son of Mr. and Mrs. John T. Ross, 15 Albion Street, Glasgow, he was educated at Woodside Higher Grade School, and for two years employed by Messrs. Yarrow, after which he went to Canada to Dalhousie University, where he studied for the Church. Some months after the outbreak of war he returned - quite unexpectedly to his family - and offered himself to the Navy. He had been on the Indefatigable since March of last year. He was home in Glasgow on leave last March. Two brothers are serving in the Royal Field Artillery.
