Died of wounds on 27.10.18, this 24 year old officer had been awarded an MC - but be dammed if I can find out when or what for! The New LG website is a mystery to me! anyone out there who can help please?

Here's a link to his MC announcement in the LG - 2 June 1916 - but no citation, I'm afraid as it seems to be part of the King's Birthday Honours List.

He was also mentioned in dispatches - LG 22 June 1915.

The spelling of his middle name varies between Dayot (e.g. Medal Index Card, "Find a grave") and Dayott (e.g. SDGW, probate records); London Gazette entries only come up if you search with two "ts" which is almost certainly the correct spelling.
