Remembered Today:

L/Cpl Percy Tatton DCM


Recommended Posts

Can anyone help please identify where my grandfather earned his D.C.M. He was L/Cpl Percy Tatton, 165946 'N' Corps Signal Company RE allotted to XIII Army Corps. His citation in London Gazette 21 Oct 1918 "For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. This man while employed as a lineman with a listening set in the front line trenches has always successfully maintained and repaired the loops and earth lines, although frequently cut by shell fire. By keeping his listening set in order he has obtained valuable information." I assume he was listening in to German communications?

Medal card states: 165946 'N' Corps Sig Co RE L/CPL P.Tatton DCM LG 3-6-1918 Page D127 - 40."

Any help will be appreciated.
