This is the gazette date - guessing MM won a few months before

The local Bathgate paper for the period might give more details

PS

Gazette search on number failed but A. Buchan, R. worked first time - you got to know how the gazette works!

Pte Alexander Buchan (26697) Royal Scots KIA 12/4/1918 won MM. Anybody any idea how and when?

West Lothian Courier 9th November 1917

Mrs Buchan, North Bridge Street Bathgate, has received notification that her husband, Corporal Alexander Buchan, Royal Scots has been recommended for the Military Medal.

Sorry no other Details

Hi John,

Found out some more details about 26697 Cpl A Buchan MM:

Medal Index Card shows service with the 12th Battalion Royal Scots.

2nd Battalion War Diary shows:

Cpl Alexander Buchan A Company 2nd Royal Scots was presented with his Military Medal on the 29/10/1917 by the Corps Commander.

The Medal was probably awarded for his actions at Passchendaele (The Third Battle of Ypres) 26th - 30th Sept 1917.

Hope this Helps

Tom
