Stoker Dugald Gillies Wood in 1915, with his wife, 8 children and Indefatigable on his cap tally

Douglas Wood writes: There is a family story that my great grandmother’s hair turned white overnight on receiving the news about her husband.
My grandfather is top left and he was the only one who stayed in Glasgow hence the reason why I am still in the area. All the others emigrated to the USA between the wars and my great grandmother died there in 1958.

NB Although shown as 17/10/1880 on his service record, his birth certificate makes it clear he was born on 7 October, and the crew list has been amended to show this, with this note as explanation of the change made.
