Good day, all.

 

Looking for a steer here. I'm trying to find out why L E M Green was awarded an MC. Is there a full citation? I found this from The Gazette but there's little detail.

Hi SDD,

 

He appears to have been awarded his MC for his actions on 10.8.1917.

You could cross reference to the Battalion, Brigade HQ and Division HQ war diaries to see if they give you any more context. The  National Archives search page is here.

 

Regards

Chris

Hi Chris and Mark

Thank you for unlocking things with your annotated piece from the Gazette. This is a strange occupation where 2 people can have  apparently similar info but one source has a key that unlocks things. 

I've found the diaries for the 13th Cheshires and 74th Brigade and they've given me some context as regards Westhoek Ridge.
