The Soldier's Legacy
‘Since I joined the Army I’ve saved enclosed £2
All my belongings, at Nairn, are gifted too…’
The High Road Home the dead must take
Where kith by hearth by lychgate wait.
And should I, too, forfeit my life-
My blood I gave for you, and Christ…
Private John Black, of the Seaforth Highlanders
left the above legacy to The Aberlour Orphanage
where he mentions he was an old boy.
