It would appear that Reginald Gordon was born in Chile!

He spent many summers at Ballater, and visited his Kinsman, Mr Alexander Forbes in Aberdeen, a good deal. He was fond of wearing a Gordon tartan kilt. He left an only son.

So is the middle initial on the memorial wrong, Glegg/Clegg?

Possibly wrong on the memorial and on CWGC too? Strange that both are making the same mistake. CWGC could be put down to a scanning error but if the memorial is also using G instead of C maybe that is what the IWGC recorded him as?

I hadn't noticed the Clegg/Glegg issue.
He's recorded as Reginald Glegg Gordon on scotlandspeople marriage index for 1909 - marrying Barbara "somebody" (not Morrison)
So it looks like the article is "iffy"

From http://www.gleig.ca/docs/Gleggs_from_Todstack_Farm_Stonehaven.pdf

He married Barbara MacKenzie MASSON, 10 Jun 1909 in High Church, Inverness, born 2 Apr 1874 in Kindrummond, Dores, Invernessshire, (daughter of John MASSON and Anne ROSE) died 6 Apr 1950 in St Andrews, buried in Top of family stone, St A, occupation Nurse.

So article is "iffy" - I should have guessed by the spelling of Chili. Rolling Eyes
