Reginald Peter PurcellGeneral Labourer
‘In the Eastriggs ceremony can be seen the grave of Reginald Peter Purcell, who was accidentially killed in H.M. Factory Dornock on 15 March 1925 age 26 years. From the date it would appear that he may have died during the demolition operations when the factory was being dismantled.’ – G Routledge, Gretna’s Secret War, (Bookcase 1999), p. 39.
