Irvine Herald Friday July 23, 1915
"THE DARDANELLES OPERATIONS
4th Royal Scots Fusiliers
Heavy Loss of Ayrshire Officers
The 4th Royal Scots Fusiliers took part in the Dardanelles operations on 12th inst., and the casualty list printed on Monday shows that the losses among the officers has been very severe
IRVINE
The news which reached Irvine on Saturday afternoon last to the effect that two populars offices of the local Company of the Royal Scots Fusiliers were officially accounted for as "missing" at the Dardanelles caused a feeling of anxiety throughout the town. Captain Archibald Kenneth, who commanded "B" Company, is one of the missing officers and Second Lieutenant Matthew B McCall is the other.
Captain Kenneth was captain of the Irvine Company for several years prior to mobilisation in August last, and in military circles he was recognised as a very able and most efficient officer, being popular with the officers and the non-commissioned ranks. A son of Mrs Kenneth, Shewalton, he is a member of the well-known Ayrshire colliery firm of Messrs J Kenneth and Sons. Captain Kenneth was married about a year ago.
Lieutenant Matthew McCall ........
We sincerely hope that two such gallant officers have not lost their lives but are only temporarily lost to their country's service, and that the forcing of the Dardanelles, in which they were engaged, will see them restored safe and sound to their comrades"

Captain Kenneth is also on the Dreghorn Memorial

Captain Archibald Kenneth, who commanded "B" Company, is one of the missing officers and Second Lieutenant Matthew B McCall is the other
Captain Kenneth .....
Lieutenant Matthew McCall was a civilian on the outbreak of hostilities, but in answer to the call of duty he joined the Irvine Company of the Royal Scots Fusiliers as a private. His ability soon attracted the notice of his superior officers, and he was first promoted Sergeant and then Second Lieutenant. In Irvine Mr McCall had a very wide circle of friends, and in Glasgow, where most of his business life was spent, he had also a vast number of close acquaintances. In Glasgow he held responsible positions with the big drapery firms of McEwan and Co., and Smith, Sons and Laughlin, and was a prominent member of the Glasgow Choral Union. For some years he was a member of the Council of the Choral Union, and he was also a long time convenor of the Ladies Committee. On returning to Irvine to go into partnership with his father, Mr Wm. McCall, J.P., draper, High Street, Mr McCall continued to interest himself in musical affairs, and became a member of the Irvine Amateur Gilbert and Sullivan Operatic Society, in whose production of "The Mikado" he filled a leading role. He was also in much request as a vocalist at many of the local concerts. As a cricketer he also made his mark in Irvine, and he was an enthusiastic member of the Irvine Golf Club. Tennis was another game that claimed his attention. It is not far off the mark to say that Mr McCall soon became a favourite in whatever branch of work or sport he took up, and being a young man with none of the objectionable acquirement known as "side" it is not surprising that he was a general favourite in the town.
We sincerely hope that two such gallant officers have not lost their lives but are only temporarily lost to the their country's service, and that the forcing of the Dardenelles, in which they were engaged, will see them restored safe and sound to their comrades"
