Military Service

1914 commissioned as Temporary Second Lieutenant into 9th
Cameronians on 2nd September
1915 promoted Lieutenant 4th February, Temporary Captain 12th June
and Adjutant 16th July.
9th Cameronians was formed at Hamilton in August 1914 as part of
Kitchener’s Army. It became part of 9th (Scottish) Division and went to
the Western Front in May 1915. Hutcheson served with the Battalion
at the Battle of Loos in September 1915 for which he received a
Mention in Despatches in Sir John French’s Despatches of 30th Nov
1916 Hutcheson’s MC was gazetted in the King’s Birthday Honour List
of June 1916 but no citation has been found so it is not known how he
earned it. The entry in the Battalion War Diary for 14th July 1916
records laconically “Adjutant and S M Killed”. The Battalion had been
involved in an attack at Bazentin (part of the Battle of the Somme)
during which they captured 2 lines of German trenches
