Biographical data
Name: Gattie, Walter Montague  
Born: 21 July 1854
Died: 17 Nov. 1907
 
Notes:
Sergeant says he died 17-11-1907 'in his fifty-second year', but the date of birth given by Gaige shows that he died at age 53. Saunders gives his name as Walter Montagu(e) Gattie, so two spellings of his middle name may have been used. The Field of 1 Apr. 1876 has 'W. Gatty'.
