Remembered Today:

242nd Siege Battery, RGA (12th Brigade)

My grandfather (Bombadier M.R.J. Beel, Wimbledon, London) ) won his MM in actions around this time with the 242nd Siege Battery (12th Brigade). I am trying to establish what actions his Brigade were involved with. If anyone has such information or can point me in the right direction, I would be grateful.

The London Gazette entry date for his MM was 12th June 1918, so I assume the action date would have been a little before that.

Regards,

K. Beel.

Welcome to the forum.

I cannot help re the MM award, but in case you cannot find his MIC, it has been misfiled under BELL 147701, NOT Beel. Similarly on his medal roll for Montague Richard James BELL

Thanks Paul. Yes you are correct. The initial Gazette entry was under Bell, subsequently corrected a while later. The medal card for his MM was similarly adjusted. Luckily the medal is correct!

I have not got to his service record card yet, but will now look.

Thanks,

Kevin.

I can't seem to locate anything but his medal card. Can someone suggest how I might progress my research - where should I go and what should I ask for?

Regards,

Kevin.
