More about Roy Whyte McCaskie

Lt. Roy Whyte McCaskie, M.C., Seaforth Highlanders. For conspicuous gallantry, during an attack. He led forward his company under intense machine-gun and artillery fire, and personally accounted for two of the enemy with his revolver, before being wounded himself.
He set his men a splendid example of coolness under fire and contempt of danger.
(M.C. gazetted 26th September, 1917.)
