Miller, James Cooper

Lieutenant J C Miller, London Scottish, died of wounds on November 25, aged 29. He was the eldest son of Mr. and Mrs Fred Miller, of 71, Teignmouth Road, and at the age of 18 joined the London Scottish, in which he remained during his student days at King's College (London University), where he took the degree of B.Sc. in 1911. He then resigned his membership of the corps on leaving London to take up an appointment on the Western Morning News at Plymouth, where he remained till the end of November 1913, when he returned to London on joining the editorial staff of the Daily Telegraph. On the outbreak of war he was sent to Paris, and returned when the Government was removed to Bordeaux. He at once enlisted as a private in his old regiment, soon became sergeant, and received his commission early in 1915. A severe illness, the result of exposure on service in this country, prevented his going abroad until last July. The Times Nov. 27, 1917
