I didn't find one either ! There's probably some incorrection which is preventing it being revealed.

I have found a Personal File in the National Archives Catalogue for a Major C P HARRISON, reference WO374/31358,and this might have a few facts worth knowing.

no MIC on ancestry

Any ideas

I can't see a MIC on Ancestry nor on the NA site so it appears that it doesn't exist. There are a number of reasons this may be but one could be the fact that officers had to claim their medals, if he didn't claim them then there will be no MIC.

15 trio with MID

Interesting, as he doesn't appear to have a card on the NA website for a MID either. Wonder what's going on?

Yes it is rather strange I have the LG for all the awards and he is in the services of officers 1920 confirming all, so lost in ancestry and NA ?? does seem a bit hard to believe

I shall not summarise this guy as I have a pic or two from the file. Conveniently (for me) there is a list of significant dates now recorded on my Kodak-less squeezebox.

To win these pics PM your e-mail.

His obituary was published in two Northern Ireland Newspapers around the time of his death on 30.7.1938, "Newtonwards Chronicle" and "The County Down Observer".

Might there be one of our NI members who can look it up for you ?

Hi there,

I am related to Cecil,

Do you still have his medals? It would be great to have a picture of them - I hope that you can help.

His medal roll details on ancestry are at (if you still have not found them):
