The Sergeant William McKenzie mentioned on this stone is (thanks to a lot of research by Stuart - "Stewartry") believed to have served as
Charles Thomas Harris age 32 Corporal (19176) 13th Battalion, East Surrey Regiment.
Formerly served as William McKenzie, Private (7657) 2nd Battalion, The Seaforth Highlanders.
William was educated at the Glasgow Street School in Maxwelltown and enlisted in the Cameronians (Scottish Rifles) in January 1902. He transferred to the Seaforths in August 1902. As a reservist, he re-joined his regiment on the outbreak of war. He served at the retreat from Mons and in other actions during which he was twice wounded. In September 1915 he was reported as having deserted. It appears that in May 1916 he re-enlisted as C T Harris of Dumfries in the East Surreys.
(Source:School Roll of Honour, Pre-war service records, Police Gazette 14/9/1915 and D&G Standard 30/1/1918 p.3c)
Born 1885 in Maxwelltown, Troqueer. (Source:GRoS Birth Register)
Son of Joseph Smith McKenzie and of Lizzie McLean (Clark) McKenzie of 4 Market Street, Maxwelltown.
Husband of Isabella (McCardle) McKenzie of 28 King Street, Maxwelltown who he married in 1908 in Glasgow. (Source:GRoS Marriage Register, 1911 census and McCardle family grave in Troqueer Cemetery)
Missing in Action 26 November 1917.
Commonwealth War Grave Cambrai Memorial, Louverval, France.
