Is it just me or are the panels of the Royal Highlanders after "Clark" and before "Fair" missing? I don't see either of the "Dand"s Confused

From "The Long, Long Trail" the 2nd Black Watch did suffer:
August 1914 : in Bareilly, India. Part of the Bareilly Brigade in Meerut Division.
21 September 1914 : Moved to France, landing at Marseilles on 12 October 1914.
26 September 1915 : amalgamated after heavy casualties with 1/4th Bn, which resumed its former identity in November 1915.
December 1915 : Moved to Mesopotamia, landing at Basra on 31 December 1915. Formation was by now renamed 21st Brigade, 7th Indian Division.
4 February 1916 : owing to heavy casualties, formed the Highland Battalion with 1st Bn, the Seaforth Highlanders.
12 July 1916 : resumed former title.
January 1918 : moved to Palestine, arriving Suez 13 January 1918.
