Informant: Private: 1452 George SLADE. I knew 2nd Lieutenant: 526 Robert Donaldson PERRAU. He War Dark. He came from Hamilton I think. He had been C.S.M. of B Company. He was killed at Messines about June 11th by concussion in the new front line just after we had taken it. The Officer Commanding Captain: William Vere Jardine BLAKE. (now Major) sent word down by a runner to get him down to be buried at the back of the line in Plugstreet Wood Cemetery, but I do not know if he was got down. The shelling was very heavy just there. We held the ground. I didn't see him killed. The runner said he was killed outright.
