He was born in Montreal, Canada, in 1883 and was my grandfather. He spoke fluent Arabic and often worked undercover. When he died in 1929, of typhoid, he was given a full military funeral. He was survived by his son, Alastair, and wife, Ella. His other son, 14-year old Donald, also died of typhoid. I have a lot of information, if interested.
