Also mentioned is Andrew Meikle. I have done some research and found he was a Lance-Sergeant in the Gordon Highlanders who was discharged in 1917 due to a gunshot wound to his back. His death in 1920 was caused by pneumonia. As his death was not related to his reason for discharge, he does not qualify for inclusion by the CWGC.

SDGW gives the above as being born in Dalserf, and residing and enlisting in Larkhall. I would say this is our man.
