|# Private Samuel Evans, of the Scots Fusilier Guards, who volunteered to repair a breach in a fortification under very heavy fire during the Crimean War.
# Sergeant James McKechnie, of the Scots Fusilier Guards, for saving the Colours and rallying troops in the Crimea.
# Private Hugh McIver, of the Royal Scots, who killed six enemy in a machine gun post, captured 20 prisoners and two machine guns in 1918.
# Captain Arthur Henderson, of the the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, who gave his life during an attack on enemy trenches in 1917.
On 23 April 1917 near Fontaine-les-Croiselles, France, during an attack on enemy trenches, Captain Henderson, although almost immediately wounded in the left arm, led his company through the front enemy line until he gained his final objective. He then proceeded to consolidate his position, which owing to heavy gun and machine-gun fire and bombing attacks was in danger of becoming isolated. By his cheerful courage and coolness he was able to maintain the spirit of his men under most trying circumstances. Captain Henderson was killed after he had successfully accomplished his task.
# Sergeant John Hannah of the RAF for his actions in the Second World War.
