Many Thanks

Reading through he only lasted 242 days (16/10/14 to 14/6/15) before discharge, looks like flat feet and possibly dislocated ankle occrred off duty.

So unable to march or walk too far. Presume never went overseas so no medal record.

I can't resist asking. What was "Irregular conduct at the Mess Table" for which he was given two days CB on 2 March (or May) 1915?

Interesting, given his address in Plean at the time of his enlistment, the logical company for him to have been attached to was B company from Cowie, which is the same company that my 2x great uncle would have enlisted in. In his case though, he was a pre-war territorial member of the Highland Cyclist Battalion, and served with them for the entire duration of the war.
