Searching for MC Citation to 8th Bde RFA Officer

Hello,

I am searching for a citation for LT. (A Cpt) Francis Geoffrey Walmsley Radcliffe.  He is noted in the War diary for the 8th Bde RFA as being gazetted for the MC.  Drew a blank on the Gazette, except for his name in a long list of other recipients.  He served as Artillery Brigade Adjutant in the Palestine campaign and his name is at the bottom of many handwritten orders.  They ended the war in Damascus.

Thanks in advance for any help

Hi

 

There is no citation, it was in the 'Honours List' of 1 January 1919 for good works etc. in EGYPT.

 

Regards,

 

Graeme

Thank you Graeme.  I suppose looking at these types of awards, there is a tendency to think they must have been for some individual act of gallantry, but their must have been many that didn't fit into that box who were gallant or selfless over a longer period  of service and were recognized by their command for it.

Kind regards

Snuffy
