2822422 Pte Nathaniel Rhind, 5th Bn, Reconnaissance Corps, Royal Armoured Corps

2822422 Private Nathaniel Rhind of the 5th Battalion, Reconnaissance Corps, Royal Armoured Corps, died on the 4th November 1941 aged 33. The Commonwealth War Graves Commission notes that he was the son of Nathaniel and Annie Simpson Rhind and the husband of Isabella More Rhind of Elgin.

The UK Army Roll of Honour 1939-45 records that Nathaniel was born in Moray and living there when he enlisted. He originally joined the Seaforth Highlanders and was, according to the RoH, serving with the "Tower Hamlets Rifles (Recce)" at the time of his death.

Nathaniel presumably died at home as he is buried in Elgin New Cemetery on Moray.

At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, WE WILL REMEMBER THEM.
