Hi Martyn,

 

Unfortunately, as a record collection MM citations no longer exist. You might find some reference in the unit war diary . He appears to have been gazetted on 17th June 1919, so you are probably looking for something at the tail end of the conflict. If you weren't to find anything, the stock advice is to look at local newspapers on the off chance that they carried some kind of report.

 

Regards

Chris

I agree with Chris. 1919 medals were quite often presented at the Town Hall by the Mayor or another local dignitary. There is a good chance of a report which may contain a description.
