Remembered Today:

DCM McKenzie 1/6 Seaforths


Recommended Posts

Dear All

I have a DCM to 1222 l/cpl John A McKenzie 1/6th Seaforths

LG 26/09/16 I have been told that he won the DCM on the 27/07/16 but can't comfirm so far.

Do any members out there have a war diary / Battn / Reg. history that covers this period and by some miracle mentions the man and his actions.

Any Info would be very much appreciated.

His local paper might give him a mention but I don't know where he was from.

Alun - I have the war diary and am happy to email you a copy of the relevant pages. Indeed, McKenzie earned his DCM for his actions in Mametz Wood in the period 26-29 July. The war diary entry of 24 August mentions his DCM being mentioned in Divisional Orders.

Drop me a PM or email and I will send it over. I am actually researching this battalion for a private tour I am taking in September - more Arras related though.

Best wishes,
