First Paragraph

1. It is with deep regret that we announce the death in Edmonton, Canada, of Richard (Dick) MacDonald, at the age of 83. Dick was the youngest child of Benard, tenth child and fifth son of George MacDonald, and his wife Belinda Bird. He was educated at St Edward’s School, Oxford, and at St Paul’s School, London, and he served with the Imperial Army from 1917 to 1919. With his wife, Inez Thomson, he emigrated to Canada in 1920 and joined the Soldiers’ Settlement Board in Edmonton with which he remained for nine years.
