Gordon Highlanders Signaller Query

Good afternoon- I’ve posted this photo before and queried it but now I think the soldier back left is perhaps Jonathan Duthie who was a signaller in the Gordon Highlanders . Could anyone please advise if his uniform would fit with that position? Thank you .

Both men are commissioned officers so neither can be a signaller per se.  It is however possible that he was the battalion’s Signals Officer who commanded its section of battalion signallers.  Officers did not wear a signallers badge.

Hi Frogsmile - thank you for your swift reply - the soldier can’t be Jonathan Duthie then sadly as Jonathan tragically was wounded and had to have a leg amputated in 1918 and in the article in the paper states that he is Pte Duthie . So the mystery of the man back left remains 😢
