Taken from the Muirkirk website it says

Pte. Wm. N. Easton Scots Grds.
Pte. Dan. Ferguson Loch. Camrs.
Pte. Harry Ferguson Loch. Camrs.

Piper Jas. Findlay R.S.F.
Gunner Robt. Findlay R.F.A.

What does the Loch. Camrs stand for as it appears again further down the list.

It may be Locheil's Camerons?

All four Service battalions of the Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders were raised throughout Scotland by Cameron of Locheil in 1914.
