Remembered Today:

John Conway Lloyd


Guest Ken Jones

Recommended Posts

Captain J C Lloyd, SWB,  WAS SLIGHTLY WOUNDED IN THE 1915 BATTLE OF AUBERS RIDGE BECAME AN A P M IN 1916 FOR THE FIRST DIVISION  AND IN 1919 WAS DEPUTY PM OF THE ARMY OF THE RHINE WITH THE TEMPORARY RANK OF COLONEL BASED IN COLOGNE.    I AM TRYING TO FIND OUT IF HE RE-ENLISTED IN 1919 AND WHEN HE  LEFT THE ARMY.

 

WERE APMs EXPECTED TO BE  INVOLVED IN FIGHTING?

In case you haven't seen these -

The National Archives has details here of his papers held elsewhere..

And there are service papers (1906-21; 1928) at the NA here

This is his entry in Who Was Who:-

 

LLOYD, Lt-Col Sir John Conway

Kt, 1938; MC

Born 1878; m 1903, Marion Clive, yr d of Maj.-Gen. William Clive Justice, CMG; one s one d ; died 30 May 1954

EDUCATION

Eton; Christ Church, Oxford

CAREER

Sheriff of Brecknockshire, 1906; served European War, 1914–19

ADDRESS

Abercynrig, near Brecon

 

which shows only service in the 'European War'. 

 

He was awarded a commission by the Lieutenant of Breconshire  dated 28th March 1919, his military rank is shown as Captain.

https://www.thegazette.co.uk/London/issue/31264/page/4227

 

Deputy Lieutenant is a military commission but it's not military service.

 

As you probably know the Gazette records him as Lt-Colonel when awarded his knighthood in 1938.

 

Given his long association with the militia and Volunteers, perhaps his elevation in rank to 'Lt-Colonel' is associated with the TA (?)

 

A very short obituary in the Times May 31 1954 has no reference to military service.
