I have a reference to a Church Lads Brigade member, H Kingsley, Queen's Own Rifles, from THE BRIGADE magazine, July 1915. From an online search I found references to H Kinsley, QOR, who was awarded the Military Medal. I am not familiar with Canadian records. Please, could someone determine if there was an H Kingsley in the QOR and therefore it is not a spelling error? Thank you. Johnny Conn.

Thank you Chris. His papers say Harold Kingsley but when he signs he does so without a g. This seems to clear up my query. There are no other H Kingsley in the search.

Hi Johnny,

The London Gazette notification can be found here

The Library and Archives Canada database entry is here

There might be some kind of citation/report of the award in his home town newspaper

Regards

Chris
