In a letter to his brother George, Private Robert Lindsay, ‘F’ Company 1/7th wrote that James had been killed in a charge and that he died a fearless death. He was sorry to be the first to convey the news of his death and that ‘my heart goes out to you in sympathy in this trying time. We buried him last night with some of his comrades, and he had a pleasing smile on his face.’ His grave was one of the many that were lost.
