stephen binks Posted 5 February , 2018 Share Posted 5 February , 2018 A lousy picture that doesn’t do justice to the story of four servicemen who all gained the Albert Medal for their efforts to save the life of a corporal of the Royal Air Force. Two of the recipients (image) were awarded their medals posthumously; Driver Alfred Horn and Private Arthur Johnston. Although Horn’s grave is inscribed with his medal, Johnston’s isn’t! Not an isolated incidence (from previous burial ground visits) and something that the CWGC are aware of and are working to correct, both the engraving of the award on the serviceman’s headstone and the citation in the cemetery register. The soldiers are buried at Crouy British Cemetery. Steve Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
