Dates of existence
Fergus Jardine was born in Dennistoun, Glasgow on the 8th of May 1893, one of five children of Isabella Jardine [nee Simpson Brown] and Andrew Jardine, a Grocer and Wine Merchant. Jardine attended The Glasgow School of Art from 1912 to 1916 as a part-time student of Drawing and Painting, excelling in Life Drawing which he focused on in 1915 while working as a Clerk. During the First World War, Jardine served as a Private in the 14th battalion of the London Scottish Regiment. He was wounded by shrapnel to the wrist and hand on the 25th of September 1916 during battle in the Somme but continued service until 1920, receiving a British War Medal and Victory Medal in 1922. After the war, he hoped to resume his occupation as a Clerk should his hand injury allow it. His date of death is unknown. Jardine is commemorated on The Glasgow School of Art's First World War Roll of Honour.
