There is no mistaking this man:

Name: MEIKLE, JOHN
Initials: J
Nationality: United Kingdom
Rank: Serjeant
Regiment/Service: Seaforth Highlanders
Unit Text: 4th Bn.
Age: 19
Date of Death: 20/07/1918
Service No: 200854
Awards: V C, M M
Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead
Grave/Memorial Reference: VIII. C. 1.
Cemetery: MARFAUX BRITISH CEMETERY
Citation: An extract from "The London Gazette", dated 13th Sept., 1918, records the following:-"For most conspicuous bravery and initiative when his company, having been held up by machine-gun fire, he rushed single-handed a machine-gun nest. He emptied his revolver into the crews of the two guns and put the remainder out of action with a heavy stick. Then, standing up, he waved his comrades on. Very shortly afterward another hostile machine-gun checked progress, and threatened also the success of the company on the right. Most of his platoon having become casualties, Serjt. Meikle seized the rifle and bayonet of a fallen comrade, and again rushed forward against the gun crew, but was killed almost on the gun position. His bravery allowed two other men who followed him to put this gun out of action. This gallant non-commissioned officer's valour, devotion to duty, and utter disregard for his personal safety was an inspiring example to all."

Also commemorated in Dingwall.
