McDougall boys photos
« on: Friday 23 October 20 07:29 BST (UK) »
Janet (nee Robertson) and Dougal McDougall migrated to Sydney from Scotland c. 1882 and settled in Surry Hills, Sydney.

At the time, they had three children, Agnes, James and David and a further 8 children were born in Sydney.  There were 5 girls and 6 boys, 4 of the boys having served in WWI.  Only one of the boys returned home, the others being killed or dying of wounds in France, Belgium and Gallipoli.

I do have a photo of Agnes and brother Sid.  Three of the girls died before they were 20 and I do not have any photos of them (two being very young).  What I would dearly like, are photos of the boys who went to WWI. 

They were :

David Robertson McDougall, b. 1880 who died 1917, Belgium
Dougal McDougall, b. 1882 who died 1918, France
John (Jack) Algie McDougall, b. 1891, died 1915, Gallipoli
William McDougall, b. 1895, died 1950 in Lakemba, Sydney

I have only seen "Algie" in Jack's name on one occasion.

I would love to have a photo of any (or all) of these Great Uncles who were in the Great War.

The other brother of whom I do not have a photo, is James b. 1878, died 1944 in Sydney

Can anyone suggest where I might be able to locate a photo of these Great Uncles please?  I do have all their War Records from the AWM but there were no photos.
