Your officer was killed whilst serving in 9 Cameronians with the South African Brigade, attached to 9 (Scottish) Division during a phase of Operation Michael, the German 1918 Offensive. See this page from the Long Long Trail, and in particular the paragraphs below the engraving picture for his Brigade's fate:
