Mon histoire

Dalrymple Gilmour, a former coal miner, was born in December 1892 in Galston, Scotland. He was the son of Joseph and Annie Bowman Gilmour. On January 24, 1916 he enlisted in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia and embarked from Sydney on board HMAT A71 Nestor on April 9, 1916 with the 30th Australian Infantry Battalion. He later joined the 8th Australian Machine Gun Company, part of the 8th Australian Brigade of the 5th Australian Division.

On October 4, 1917 the 2nd Australian Division participated in the Battle of Broodseinde, a phase in the Third Battle of Ypres. The 8th Australian Machine Gun Company, from the 5th Division assisted this attack. This Battalion fired approximately 33,000 rounds on October 4.

Dalymple, aged 26, was killed in action on October 4, 1917. Private Gilmour was initially buried where he fell, northwest of Zonnebeke Chateau (28.D.27.b.80.50). After the war, his remains were exhumed and reinterred at Perth Cemetery (China Wall), Plot 5, Row E, Grave 6.
