This is Sgt Alexander (Sandy) Butters who served in the First World War as Private 4310 Butters of the 1/6th Black Watch, then serving with the 8th, and 1/7th battalions,  as Sergeant S/43056. The story goes he was awarded the Military Medal but cannot see any evidence so far in any available records.

 

Is that a MM ribbon?

 

Also can you see any other clues to his service in his uniform.

Had a look in the London Gazette

Could not find any Alexander Butters or Alexander  Buttars awarded the MM

I would have thought if his MIC says Buttars then so would any MM award too

Mike - Might sounds like an obvious question but are 100% certain it is Alexander and not a relative ?
