Pauline Haycock Posted 3 February , 2018 Share Posted 3 February , 2018 My uncle Harry Whitworth, Service Number40551, 2nd Lincolnshire, was awarded the Military Medal at a battle taking the town of Bachant just after they had crossed the River Sambre. He was decorated by the General of the 3rd Army. I am trying to find ouy the name of the General of the Third Army at that time My uncle was mentioned in Despatches but thus far I have not been successful in finding the entry He left France in May 1919 and was selected to bring back the Regimental colours of the 2nd Lincs to Clipston camp near Mansfield. This was a great honour for him and I am trying to find any recorded references to it. Can anyone help me please Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
