Oliver John Paskin was my great grandfather. He died 32 years before I was born. He was my dad's grandfather (mums father) do you have any more information? I am greatly interested! He was also awarded the Croix de Guerre!!

See here:

If you have acess to the British Newspaper Archive, then there's a photo of your relative (with a small portrait photo) regarding his awarding of the Croix de Guerre by France, in the Staffordshire Advertiser for the 1st of December 1917.

 

Cheers,

Derek.
