Bit of an odd query.

On all the Crossmichael Memorials, on the family gravestone, on the Birth Register and on Glasgow University RoH this man is ROBERT RENNIE.
On CWGC, SNWM and on his MIC he is F. R. RENNIE
Second Lieutenant, 9th Cameronians, KIA 9/2/1916.

He was a Territorial in the 1/5th Cameronians when war broke out and was studying for the Ministry having obtained his MA at Glasgow Uni.
He's listed on the Roll of Honour there as Second Lieutenant Robert (Reverend) Rennie.
Could this be the reason for the "F" ??

There is another MIC for a Private Robert Rennie with 2 Service No.s 1882 and 265433.
Could this be the same man as a "Terrier" ?
