A Powell Posted 2 January , 2011 Share Posted 2 January , 2011 Hi, I've attempted to research my Great, Great Uncles war time service and with help from this forum and others I've discovered that he was awarded the MM sometime in April 1918. I've never been able to find out why he was awarded the MM and the South Staffordshire Regiment Museum could also only confirm the details I'd kindly received from this forum. I haven't looked any further but I've seen a book entitled In "Honours and Awards The South Staffodshire Regiment 1914-1918" by J.C.J. Elson which listed the action a soldier was awarded his MM. I'm wondering does anyone have this book and would they very kindly check if my relative is listed: Zachariah Tolley Pte 38443 South Staffordshire Regiment 4th Battalion The Museum was very helpful and stated that 10 men from the 4th Battalion of the South Staffs were all awarded the MM on the same day and I know Zachariah was also wounded around April 1918. I've just recently been contacted by Zachariahs' family who have passed on photos' etc and given me a real insight into the man behind the photos'. Any help would be fantastic and much appriciated.
