Ken, Having used a popular search engine to find an image of this memorial I can confirm that there is a J MacKenzie of Lochnamoidh who served in the Seaforths named on the Muir of Ord WM. Could be the same man.

Well done that man Very Happy

That's got to be him and his brothers Donald and Kenneth are also listed.
Both are mentioned in the CWGC article as serving in the Cameron Highlanders.
