Marshall David Machine Gun Corps Corporal.

I think that this is the same man who is named on the St. Boswell Parish War Memorial in Roxburghshire as:

DAVID MARSHALL, K.O.S.B.
David Stewart Marshall age 27 Corporal (34454) 143rd Company, Machine Gun Corps.
David was a gardener when he enlisted as Private (7233) in the Kings Own Scottish Borderers Reserve at Galashiels, Selkirkshire in November 1914. He re-enlisted in May 1916 at the MGC Depot at Grantham in Lincolnshire and joined his company in France in August.
(Source: Service record and Stirling Observer 22/9/1917 p.5)
Born 1890 at Badshalloch Cottage in Kilmaronock Parish, Dunbartonshire.
Son of the late David Marshall (died 1892) and of Agnes (McGregor) Marshall, and step-son of William Campbell who married Agnes in 1895 in Kilmaronock.
The family lived at High Lodge, Parkhill, Balfron, at Camoquhill Douglas, Balfron and at Dunkyan Lodge, Killearn, all in Stirlingshire.
Killed in Action on 23 August 1917 and buried in Tyne Cot Cemetery, Belgium.
