Remembered Today:


British awards to the French

Recommended Posts


Across the other side of the English Channel, someone has downloaded the various WO 388/6 files, of British awards to allied (foreign) recipients. They have done a great job of transcribing the awards to French officers. There are two files, WO 388/6/5 &  WO 388/6/6, that are the primary source documents utilised.

The IWM has some pictures of three French officers who were presented awards at Gallipoli (Commandant de Cavalerie Jean de Bertier de Sauvigny, Lieutenant Félix Alexandre Jean Léon DE LABORDE, Lieutenant Paul Eugène PELLIOT). Just prior to the ceremony, a small group of Royal Naval Division men are photographed peering at the medals.
