Remembered Today:

Walter Westbury 5th London Regiment R/N 304446


Recommended Posts

I am trying to find out if Walter Westbury of the 5th London Regiment was awarded a Military Medal. I have tried looking in the London Gazette website with no luck. Any information will be appreciated.

Not to say that he wasn't awarded an MM, but he isn't named in the list of honours and awards given as at the end of the 'The History of the London Rifle Brigade 1895 -1919', nor does he get mentioned elsewhere in the book.

Member erniecrisp might have further information on him.

He did not win a MM with the 5th Londons although he also served with the 8 Londons & 13 Rifle Brigade - he ended up with the 5th so if he had won the MM it is likely he would be listed in the Regt History/other sources

Walter is not listed as being amongst the MM winners serving with the 8th Ldn Regt from C Messenger`s, Terriers in the Trenches.
