William Jarvie Harrower

Sergeant 1049
Army Gymnastics Staff, formerly Highland Light Infantry
A careful search of on-line catalogues has failed to find a Medal Index card for Harrower.  The fact that he does not seem to have qualified even for the British War Medal suggests that he spent all his military service in the United Kingdom.   As a staff sergeant instructor presumably he spent his time training recruits.
