CrestonWW1 Posted 19 October , 2013 Share Posted 19 October , 2013 I am requesting help regarding “A” Battery, 223rd Bde. deployment when 2nd Lt. William Lawson Hepher was awarded the M.C. It would have been after March 1918 (when Lawson was promoted to 2nd. Lt.) and before the medal citation date which reads: "1.11.1918 - For services rendered during the recent advance. During one period his battery was in action for 14 days." From the clues "recent advance" and "in action for fourteen days", copies of original documents obtained from Lawson’s son, and the Order of Battle for The 63rd (Royal Naval) Division, my best guess would be: 26 Sept. - 9 Oct., 1918, being the Battles of the Canal du Nord and Cambrai, (both with the XV11 Corps). Correct me please, if I am barking up the wrong tree. Your confirmation (or otherwise) on the above would be most appreciated. John Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
