Colonel CV Martin

I would be grateful if anyone out there has any information on this officer. I know he was KIA 27.03.1917 but it took me time to find him in CWGC because his nationality was listed as Indian. Nevertheless, they have;

Lt Col CV Martin, 29th Lancers (Deccan Horse) att. X Corps HQ, KIA 27.3.17, buried Lijssenhoek Military Cemetery.

He does not seem to be in ODGW, or (according to PROCAT) in WO 339/ - perhaps he may be in Indian Army records at BL ?

I'm interested in his X Corps work.

(Why, incidentally, can I not find other officers who were killed in WO 339/. I thought they were all in there unless they continued to serve after 1922 ?????_)

grateful for any help

thank you very much Bob - what is Cross of Sacrifice

thanks too, Alex, I looked at the link, not much different to the PRO 1WW guide by Spencer, I guess I'll have to trawl through 338 when I'm next there

Julian,

Cross of Sacrifice is a book listing officers who died in the various theatres of war 1914-1919.

It's available from Naval & Military Press.
