Wallace M Annand - RND - South Shields (Killed)

  • Description

    SOUTH SHIELDS NAVAL LIEUTENANT KILLED. News was received at South Shields yesterday, that Lieutenant Commander Wallace M. Annand, of the Royal Naval Division, had been killed in action at the Dardenelles, on June 7. Lieutenant Commander Annand who was 29 years of age, was a son of Mr. R.C. Annand, of Harton South Shields, and he leaves a widow who is the daughter of Mr. Henry Chapman, of Westoe, South Shields. Prior to the outbreak of the war Lieutenant Annand was in the Tyne Division of the Royal Naval Volunteers for active service. For some time he was engaged in connection with the training of recruits, but he offered his services for the Dardanelles, and arrived there only a fortnight ago. Lieutenant Commander Annand had only recently been promoted. This photograph was published in the Illustrated Chronicle on the 10th of June 1915. During the Great War the Illustrated Chronicle published photographs of soldiers and sailors from Newcastle and the North East of England, which had been in the news. The photographs were sent in by relatives and give us a glimpse into the past. The physical collection held by Newcastle Libraries comprises bound volumes of the newspaper from 1910 to 1925. We are keen to find out more about the people in the photographs. If you recognise anyone in the images please comment below. Copies of this photograph may be ordered from us, for more information see: http://www.newcastle.gov.uk/tlt" >www.newcastle.gov.uk/tlt Please make a note of the image reference number above to help speed up your order.
