Major Richard Day was killed on February 23rd 1918 having just been promoted and awarded the military medal. Could anybody help me find out how he won the medal. Are there any web sites that allow a search for such information. Thanks.

Was the MM from before he was commissioned ? An officer would be given the MC rather than the MM.

Richard Day, RFA ? Id so gere's his medal citation from the London Gazette. It appears it was a bar to the Military Cross so he'd already been given the MC previously.

He's from Gateshead. He has enough problems.

From Consett, I just moved down from the hills for work purposes ! (honest). I'm a respectable member of the community... (soon to be J.P. if everything goes through ok)
