Thanks to Adam and Derek.
The Ross & Cromarty Mountain Battery, RGA (TF) was headquartered in Lochcarron. Lieutenants Murdo Mackenzie and Alexander D. Morrison (Addie) were both killed at Gallipoli. Lieut. Morrison was the first Artillery officer ashore (other than liaison officers)with the first section of mountain guns from the Ross Battery before noon on 25 April 1915 at 'W' Beach (despite what the histories say). The sorely needed guns were in action up on the bluffs between V & W beaches by 2:00 PM and their Highland Ponies were sent back to W Beach to move ammunition and water to the beleaguered infantry as no transport troops or animals were landed for three days. He was wounded 22 Jul 1915, along with Major MacKelvie (OC Argyll Mountain Battery) and Gunner J.G. Macleod when a shell burst at the guns which also wounded Major McKelvie and Gunner J. G. Macleod. He died 25 Jul 1915 away from the battery whose members, including his newly arrived brother, apparently didnít learn about it until the middle of August.
Lieut. Murdo Mackenzie was killed in action at Gallipoli (Shrapnel wounds to the head) while directing his guns at the Battle of Gully Ravine on 28 June 1915. He was 30 years old.
I hope you all find this of interest. This is part of my small effort see that they are not forgotten.
Mike Morrison

Great War
FINLAYSON, Malcolm, Sergeant


(Glasgow Herald 12th of December 1914)
"Killed in action, on 7th November, Corporal Malcolm Finlayson, Seaforth Highlanders, third son of Mr & Mrs Wm. Finlayson, Lochcarron."

(Glasgow Herald 15th of December 1914)
"Official confirmation from the War Office has been received of the death of Corporal M. Finlayson, 2nd Seaforth Highlanders, who was killed in action on November 7. It appears that Finlayson died a hero's death. At the time he was leading a section of men (he had been promoted to Sergeant in the field) in a desperate hand to hand engagement in the village of Ploeg in Belgium. He was foremost in the encounter, and had himself accounted for several of the enemy under overwhelmed by superior numbers. Finlayson had been for some years in Dingwall, and latterly was engaged as a postman at Nigg, from which he joined his regiment as a reservist. He was 29 years of age, was well known in sporting circles in the district, and is survived by a wife and child."

WW1
Pte. Francis Jackson Reid, New Kelso

He appears to be on the memorial as this is where his grandfather was from. Also the obituary seems more about his father than he.

Canadian attestation papers. Born Hounslow, London.

(Glasgow Herald 6th May 1915)
"Private Francis J. Reid, Canadian Contingent (killed in action on April 27 at Ypres), was the third son of Surgeon-General Sir Adam Scott Reid, K.C.B. (M.B. C.M. Edinburgh University), whon has held many high offices in India, and was decorated and mentioned in despatches for services in the Afghan War, defence of Malakand, etc., by his marriage in 1875 with Sydney, daughter of the late Sydney Vaughan Jackson, County Mayo. Sir Adam Reid was the son of John Alexander Reid of Newkelso, Loch Carron, Ross-shire."
