Robertson was killed on September 2nd, 1918 at Dury in front of Arras, Northern France. Initially he was reported Missing in Action and his family received 3 brief telegrams with that status between September 21st and October 5th, 1918. On October 16th, a fourth and final telegram arrived with the message: “deeply regret to inform you Pte. P.L.
