Trying to find citation for military cross for Capt Ian Mackenzie, Seaforth Highlanders.

Being having a battle with London Gazette site.

Any hep much appreciated.

Had a good look could not find it also checked out Mckenzie which the NA shows on his MIC.

Good Luck

As Ray told you, the MIC says "Ian McKenzie," 5/Seaforth Highlanders, Captain, M.C., in France 1 February 1917.

The MIC also says "dec'd. 21 March 1918," but if this means "deceased" we have an additional problem--he is not

listed in CWGC, SDGW, or the BMD for 1918. I had the same experience as Ray and yourself when I searched

for his award citation in the London Gazette archive (using both "McKenzie" and "Mackenzie" and sundry variants.

He is listed by CWGC as Mackenzie - this is what I got from their site -

Captain Ian Mackenzie M.C

Date of death – 21st March 1918

Service – 5th Battalion Seaforth Highlanders

Place of burial – Unknown. Commemorated on the Arras Memorial, bay 8.

Aged 24 at date of death. Son of the late John MacKenzie (Solicitor and Town Clerk, Tain), and of Mrs. MacKenzie, of St. Vincent, Tain, Ross-shire. Educated at Fettes College, Edinburgh, and Balliol College, Oxford.

I have found that the LG site is not great - it does not always find on surname no matter what variation of Mc or Mac you use, I will keep looking.

Attached is a photo of Ian MacKenzie from the Balliol College War Memorial Book, vol. II. His writeup in this book indicates that he 'was awarded the Military Cross for his fine service in the battle of Cambrai in November.' Dick Flory
