Date of Birth - 9th August 1850
First Appointment - Ensign - 93rd Foot - 9th October 1869
Ensign - 91st Foot - 20th October 1869
Lieutenant - 91st Foot - 28th October 1871
Captain - Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders (1st Battalion) - 25th November 1879
South African War - 1879 - Zulu Campaign - Battle of Gingindhlovu and relief of Etshowe. Medal with Clasp.

St Martin of Tours (c.316-397): by C. E. Kempe, 1894. Inscribed: "Placed here by his brother officers in memory of Major Douglas James MacGregor MacDonald, Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders, died 17th Nov. 1893, aged 43." This window depicts St Martin offering a coin to a beggar, a reference to an incident from his early life when he divided his cloak to cloathe a beggar, following which Christ appeared to him in a dream wearing the garment that he had given away.
