A message from his great-great-nephew tells us that Angus Robertson was born on Newry, Ireland, in 1898. His mother and father moved to Ireland in 1897. The national ARchive logs show him as being born in 1897.


This date would make him 19 or 20, not 24 as the Register of Deaths entry states. His niece reports that he lied about his age when he joined the Navy, to train on HMS Ganges. He then served on Victory and King Georga.
