Could this be the PAGE you seek - Extract page 1264 War Services of Military Officers of the Army April 1920:

PAGE Rev B. (temp. Chaplain 4th Class). The War of 1914-9 – Despatches, Lond.Gaz., 30 Dec 1918.

Rev JENKYN is not listed.

Hello Neil - just spotted your RAChD interest. Can I invite your attention to this thread where I have speculated(with all due caution - that the man in question might be a senior padre ?

HI Hywyn

Many thanks for that hit on Jenkyn I think that's a bull's eye. No I haven't got Jenkyn medal card, would love a copy, both these Chaplains were mentioned in the 1/6th Bn Duke of Wellington's (West Riding) Regiments War Diary . War Diary states:-

19/10/1915

5.15 pm No. 208 Cpl J Lomas, B Coy killed HE Shell front trench

5.15 pm No. 2964 Pte A W Rooke, B Coy, killed HE shell in front trench

3 pm No. 2064 L/Cpl P Morgan D Coy, killed by shell, in Support trench

3 pm No. 2020 Pte F Goodwin D Coy died of wounds shortly after being hit by shell, Support trench

(Buried at Talana Farm sheet 28 B1 8c8. 7 by 4th Cl Chaplain Page at 8 am 20th)

04/11/1915

8.30 am No. 3077 Pte G Dixon, A Coy, killed bullet through head F31 (Buried by 4th Cl Chaplain C W O JENKINS Sheet 28 1/40000 B1 8c8 7)

06/11/1915

1 am No. 1776 Pte W Binns D Coy, killed by Bomb F35. (Buried sheet 28 B 18c 87 by 4th Cl Chaplain C W O Jenkyn

Hence the two spellings of Jenkins and Jenkyn

Kindest Regards DaveC
