The David Sibbald listed amongst the First World War names may be this man who emigrated to New Zealand before the war

SIBBALD, DAVID
Rank: Lance Serjeant
Service No: 8/2727
Date of Death: 07/06/1917
Regiment/Service: Otago Regiment, N.Z.E.F. 1st Bn.
Memorial: MESSINES RIDGE (N.Z.) MEMORIAL

He had first tried Canada but found it too cold so had joined another Gullane family, the Hamiltons, in Ettrick, Otago, New Zealand.

He had no next of kin in Scotland after the war so there is no guarantee the Gullane man David Sibbald who died serving with the Otago regiment is the one listed on the memorial.

Thanks to Alistair McEwen for this additional information about Sibbald

There are only 3 David Sibbalds on the CWGC register, and one of those is one of mine - a Dalbeattie man (ish) He is on the WM here.
The only other was an Edinburgh man Pte.351330 Royal Scots 23/7/16.
The New Zealander looks like the man. His details including a photograph are at http://muse.aucklandmuseum.com/databases/Cenotaph/14381.detail?Ordinal=1&c_surname_search=sibbald&c_firstname_search=david&c_warconflict_search=%22world+war+i,+1914-1918%22
His NoK is James Hamilton (friend) Gallane (sic), Etrick, Otago.
