Does anyone have any information on Captain Alex McCallum, Ive been scouring ancestry, Archives, CWGC.....maybe its me, but I cant find anything on Alex McCallum.

I came across an Alexander Miekle McCallum, Highland Light Infantry, DOW 3/4/1917, remarkably on his MIC it states he went from Private to Temp/Captain?

Regards
James
