I have managed to track down photographs of most of the officers who served with the Divisional Cyclist Companies in 1914. One which has eluded me to date is S H Dix ,who was awarded an MC whilst commanding the 6th Divisional Cyclist Company. If anyone could point  me in the direction of a photo I would be very grateful. Regards Clive
