Remembered Today:

A rescue in the Caucasus / Armenia


Recommended Posts

This is a DCM citation from April 1920 (previously announced in December 1919). The soldier also earned a Meritorious Service Medal. I would like to know more about this incident and if anyone has ever come across it before or knows something, please do tell. I am going to see what I can find at the National Archives next week and will add details here if I can get to the bottom of it.

M27194380 Pte. J. Douglas, R.A.S.C.

(M.T.) (Jedburgh).


For conspicuous gallantry in action in the

Tartar country, south of Erivan, when with

a Ford car he proceeded to the rescue of the

Allied Consuls who had been held up on

the top of Kasbek Mountain. He came

under heavy fire on the Georgian Road, and

the guide accompanying him was killed.

I now have a stack of information in this incident. If anyone is ever looking, do give me a shout.
