The NCO is listed on the Newmains War Memorial.

SMITH, David Sergeant 7303 8th (Lanark) Bn. (Territorial) Highland Light Infantry

News is anxiously awaited as to the fate of Sergeant David Smith (7303) 7th Royal Scots, who was reported missing on June 28, and has not been heard of since. Sergeant Smith is the possessor of medals for the Boer War and the campaign in India. His parents, who belong to Newry, are at present residing at 39 Lavinia Street, Belfast, would be grateful for any information.
The Belfast Evening Telegraph, 13 September 1915.

SMITH – Missing since June 28, 1915, at the Dardanelles (officially reported killed), Sergt. D. Smith, Royal Scots, eldest son of Mr Smith, Coachbuilder (late of Newry). Deeply regretted by his Father, Mother, Sisters and Brothers (one of the latter on active service).

SMITH - Missing since June 28, 1915, at the Dardanelles (officially reported killed), Sergt. D. Smith, Royal Scots. Deeply regretted by his sorrowing sister, nephew and brother-in-law (the latter on active service). Jessie Wesley and Thomas White, 39 Lavinia Street.

Other Memorials: Sergeant Smith is name don the Scottish Roll of Honour in the Scottish National War Memorial, Edinburgh Castle, Edinburgh; he is also commemorated on the Newmains, War Memorial, New Mains, North Lanarkshire (on the Morningside and Chapel District Panel).
IWM Records Page No: Volume VIII, Page 7.

Whilst his unit is listed on the CWGC as 8th Bn HLI, there has been discussion regarding the 8th Bn and it roll in Gallipoli. I have found with the assistance of other members of this site the following info

Regiment, Corps etc
Highland Light Infantry

Battalion/etc
8th (Lanark) Battalion (Territorial).

Battalion Details
4.8.14 Lanark: attached Lothian Inf. Bde. Scottish Coast Defences. There is little information available about this unit. One source states that as there were insufficient volunteers for service overseas it was disbanded in May 1916 and the personnel posted to the 8th Provisional Bn., which had been formed from the 8th H.L.I. in 1915. But it is possible that the volunteers for service overseas had been drafted to the other four Territorial battalions of the regiment. 2nd and 3rd Line battalions were not formed.

I believe this is th Mich Lyons listed on this memorial; (It is interesting to note that the 8th Bn HLI is also shown as his regt, as is the soldier's above).

I believe that this soldier is the Michael Lyons listed on this memorial;

LYONS Michael Private 7513 8th Bn Highland Light Infantry
Born: Newtownstewart, Co Tyrone Resided: Wishaw, Lanarkshire Enlisted: Law, Lanarkshire.
Date of Death: 29/06/1915 Cause: Died of wounds (Sustained Gallipoli).
Other notes: Private Lyon’s Medal Index Card shows him as entering the Gallipoli theatre of Operations on 2/4/1915.
Special notes: Private Lyons’s unit is shown in all the common records (Soldiers Died etc) as “8th Bn. Highland Light Infantry, research would indicate that this unit did not serve at Gallipoli or indeed serve overseas during the Great War. the unit itself was disbanded in 1916.
Grave/Memorial: Special Memorial. 54. Pink Farm Cemetery, Helles.
Other memorials: Private Lyons is commemorated on the Newmains War Memorial (the Overtown District Panel, Newmains, Lanarkshire and the Overtown War Memorial, Main Street, Overtown, Lanarkshire.; he is also named in the Scottish Roll of Honour in the Scottish National War Memorial, Edinburgh castle, Edinburgh.

I was delighted to find out the information about Sergeant David Smith who died at Gallipoli during the Great War. He was my great-grandfather and I have installed a memorial bench in his honour at Morningside where his name is on the memorial. It was also interesting to find out so much about his family in Ireland and I would love to find out more about my Irish connections. I did visit a newsagent in Margaret Square Newry which his parents owned at one time. The 1911 census shows that he had a sister called Evelyn. My late mother (his grand-daughter) was also called Evelyn. If anyone has more information regarding my great-grandfather I would welcome this.

This is the same as the war memorial at Slaidburn, Lancashire:

It has been compared to the one at Clitheroe, also in Lancashire but although they are similar they are not the same.

Guys,

Just to let you know I recently published 3 books about the guys from the above villages who died during the Great War. It also has details of those injured, extracts from war diaries, letters to the press, some pictures of the men and their headstones.
