McNaughton, Wm.

I assume he didn't survive his injuries?

"News has come to hand concerning private William McNaughton, a young St Ninians (Stirling) man serving with the 2nd Battalion Gordon Highlanders, trace of whom had been lost since the operation at Neuve Chapelle.

It looks awful like this mans middle initials (M.M.) as in "Bell, Alex. M.M." have been mistaken for the acronym for the Military Medal.
Unless there's another man called Alex. Bell associated with Stirling and this man isn't recorded here? The RoH would help clear that up.
