I am having rouble locating this person. Wonder if someone can help.

The Aberdeen weekly journal has him as died 1 June 1916. He was a Lance Corporal in the Gordon Highlanders.

Can't find him on the CWGC site or various others. Even a google search does not bring up anything.

I have tried surnames variants as he is listed somewhere else as Sherreffs
