Gordon Guthrie Keddie served with the Calcutta Scottish Independent Defense Force. His grave in Calcutta shows his date of death as 8 April 1918. He is not named on CWGC or SNWM.

According to Wikipedia, "The Calcutta Scottish was a regiment of volunteers of Scottish descent raised in 1914 as an infantry regiment of the British Indian Army. The regiment formed part of the army reserves of the Auxiliary Force, India (AFI). The regimental dress uniform was Hunting Stewart tartan. The regiment was disbanded following India's independence in 1947.

[In WW1] the regiment probably deployed only as individual reinforcements. Some officers are known to have gone to East Africa, but there is no other record of deployment as a unit. There is reference to Calcutta Volunteer Machine Guns armed with Maxim guns which may have included officers and men from the Calcutta Scottish. On 1 April 1917, the regiment was redesignated the 44th Calcutta Scottish."

He is also named on the Giffnock Park Church Memorial.
