I have a silver war medal with this engraved on rim:

236 Sjt.J.t.McDonald Seaforth Highlanders.

The information from owner is, he was from Dunkeld Perthshire, died aged 22 nr a place called Douaillmont? ( have heard of Douaumont )

Have looked in CWGC, Scottish War memorial, and for a MIC and can't tie up these details.

Can anyone help identify the right man, and correct any wrong information.

Would this have been engraved when received, or later by owner?

Is it a fake?

Mike.

Thanks for the MIC Steve. Maybe he didn't die. ( Did you get the MIC on Ancestry? )

Mel I saw that one , and presumed it was him too.

Cheers Mike.

Edit: The Scottish National War Memorial says 200190 was from Ross Shire
