The deceased officer, who was 29 years of age and a native of Tiree, was conducting a mission in Canada when war was declared, and he joined the Canadian Camerons in November 1914, getting a commission as a second lieutenant. In June 1915 he came to Britain with his regiment, and landed in France in February. His gallantry and devotion to duty were soon recognised, and he was promoted to Captain, and was attached to the Machine Gun section.
