Mr Machardy discusses the war

The original title of this photo was Machardy and Mother discuss the war.

It is known that Mr Machardy was the head stalker, hence the rifle and plus fours, to the Fowler family of Braemore Estate, 12 miles south of Ullapool. It is likely that 'Mother' is Lady Fowler.

The Fowler family lost both their sons in World War One. Captain Sir John Edward Fowler of the 4th Battalion, Seaforth Highlanders, was 30 years old when he was killed in action near Richebourg L'Avoue on 22 June 1915. His body was repatriated and was buried with military honours in the Foich burial ground, a private cemetery on the Fowler's Braemore estate. His younger brother, Captain Alan Arthur Fowler of the Cameron Highlanders, had been killed in action on 28 April 1915. He has no known grave and is commemorated on the Menin Gate at Ypres.

The caption on this card was presumably written by one of these two men. "Mother" would have been Alice Janet Clive Fowler (nee Bayley) who was by then the widow of the late Sir John Arthur Fowler, 2nd Baronet.
