Could you just check that the MIC for Archibald McIntyre Seaforths s/25305 (formerly A&SH 25476) is not mistranscribed by looking at the medal Roll ?

thanks- I presume you are saying MIC has been correctly written up from the medal Roll. In which case I cannot find 42305 either (unless there's a Medal Roll entry for this number )?

Had you noticed that he was initially buried at Oulchy le Chateau about 8 miles south of Buzancy and reburied after the war.

I take it this must be him with the error on his Seaforth Number?  Many thanks for all your help folks 

That is what I was saying above but I wanted verification of what the Medal Roll says. The MIC is prepared from the Roll, not the other way round.

I don't understand the image you posted in your post6 above
