A Croix de Guerre for Fraser-Tytler through the post

Recommended Posts

Dear All,

Old Etonian Neil Fraser-Tytler (died 1937), published "Field Guns in France" (1922), being the wartime letters to his father.

Amongst other things, he appreciated the fighting spirit of the AIF - and also mentioned having been sent a Croix de Guerre by a French general. 

Interestingly, the decoration was clearly accompanied by a Citation...5ae5e6fe10642_CroixdeGuerreforMajorNeilFraser-TytlerDSO.jpg.6489a17f0b9ec64cd3b9c616c0a6062f.jpg5ae5e70ee4dbf_FieldGunsinFrance1922.jpg.31eb8f279c2c0837633777fe3b641d6b.jpgFraser-Tytler.jpg.3af74a1caba00628945c637b70cdee43.jpg

Kindest regards,

Kim.

I found him very helpful when I was researching Lt Beaton A.I.F. who had a Croix Civique that was mentioned in his service papers but not gazetted. Hendrik took it upon himself to research the Belgium end for me, which eventually led to the reason why Beaton was awarded the cross.

Dear Peter,

As it happened, Hendrik was unable to help with C. L. Harland (Lt Beaton's papers having provided the reference which could be followed up), but he kindly answered, which was greatly appreciated.

Kindest regards,

Kim.
