MM Citation for William Durward OSBORNE

I'm trying to trace the action that William Durward OSBORNE was involved in, which merited him being awarded the Military Medal.

He served with the 14th then 9th Royal Welch Fusiliers. Service number 18181.

His award was in the London Gazette 13.9.18. Although I have found citations for other MM winners I can't find anything for this man.

I've looked through the 9th Bn War Diary but couldn't see anything in there, although others who were awarded the MM were named.

Thanks

Thanks Ivor. I have looked back through the war diaries but there is no mention of him. Can I ask who Williamson is?

Howard is the author of this great volume, and several other very useful WW1 books that are specifically about the MM:

That's a great result! A place and date(s) of the action specified too. You can now reread the Bn. war diary for 10-18th April 1918.

Glad to have been able to help.
