Thanks for all replies.
Adam I think you may have cracked it. Will take up your suggestion and try to trace a report of unveiling.

John - I sent a PM on the War Graves Project site.
Did you know that some of your photos have gone AWOL?
See Sorbie for example:

I came across this list which I though might be useful:

Abreviations used in the First World War medal index cards (National Archives):

The Gairloch Roll of Service has thrown up two abbreviations I can't work out. There is a little bit more information to give a clue but unfortunately no first names.

A.A.F. - I think this may be Australian or American
M.B.R - MMR was Mercantile Marine Reserve so it may be a variation of that? It is certainly naval give the ranks Our main list has a similar abbreviation B.M.R. which is unknown too.

Aultbea District

MACASKILL A. Private A.A.F.

MACASKILL A. Able Seaman M.B.R.
MACIVER D. Able Seaman M.B.R.
URQUHART M. Able Seaman M.B.R.

It also has this one which is a new one for out list - Deputy Assistant Director of Veterinary Services - D.A.D.V.S

Kinlochewe District

MACDONALD Duncan Major D.A.D.V.S.

Thanks

Adam
