    2nd Lieut. Andrew SHARP, 9th Royal Highlanders.

    Born 2 October 1884. Killed in action, Loos, 25 September 1915, aged 30. Loos Memorial, Pas de Calais, France, Panel 78–83. Brother of J. B. B. Sharp, South Forre, Crieff, Perthshire.

    Second Lieutenant Andrew Sharp 9th Black Watch, has been killed in action. Lieut. Sharp, who was about 30 years of age, was the eldest son of the late Mr. John Sharp, farmer, South Forr, and was a partner in the firm of Messrs. Graham and Finlayson, Solicitors, Crieff. He joined the Scottish Horse last year, and was afterwards transferred to the 9th Black Watch. He was widely known as the Secretary of the Strathern Agricultural Society. The Scotsman, 6 October, 1915, 8.

    HOW LIEUT. SHARP, CRIEFF, MET HIS DEATH.

    In a letter to his parents in Crieff, Private Maxton Mackinlay, 9th Black Watch, refers to the manner in which Lieutenant Sharp met his death. He was killed in the trenches by a German officer’s servant. He led his men well, and the men would follow him anywhere; he was so cool and showed great bravery. It was through being so lenient with the enemy that he lost his life. He had just left the German first trench, and was going into the second when he came on a German officer. He was taking him prisoner, when this officer’s servant shot him through the head. But the servant did not live long. Oh; They are a cowardly lot of men. They wouldn’t show fight at close quarters at all, but laid down their rifles and asked for mercy, saying, “Comrade, comrade, me English!”’ The Dundee Advertiser, Monday, 11 October 1915, 2.
