Captain - He lived at Belmont, Dollar at the time of his death and was an ex-army officer although on his death certificate he is entered as a Retired Woollen manufacturer. At the outbreak of war he had served as a Captain in the 2/7th Battalion, Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders at Alloa and Norfolk but t is presumed that due to ill health he retired. He was Captain of the Sauchie Company of the Clackmannanshire Volunteer Battallion. He died in his home at Belmont, Dollar of pneumonia on 25 August 1916. He was given a military funeral with three volleys being fired over his grave and the playing of the last post. He does not appear on the CWGC because he was not a full time officer but is listed on the war Memorial in Tillicoultry Parish Church. When the then St Serf's (Tillicoultry) Parish Church was renovated in 1929 his widow and a brother gifted the handsome brass eagle lectern in the church. At that point they were living in Redmayes, Dollar Road, Tillicoultry.
