paul g knowles Posted 4 February , 2022 Share Posted 4 February , 2022 Hello Forum, It has been some time since I last posted, but I need some help please. I'm trying to piece together the service history of a young officer in the 8th Battalion Royal Sussex Regiment, Captain L A F Ireland. I have been fortunate enough to purchase his service medals and awards and know that he was posted home to England (Battalion war diaries) in early February 1918 for 6 months duty. His MC is engraved: 31st July 1917 and 16th March 1918. The 31st July 1917 is I am assuming the Third Battle of Ypres, and the 16th March 1918 is the day he was awarded his Military Cross? I believe that their was an investiture at Buckingham Palace that day? Any information about Captain Ireland and the 8th Battalion would be very gratefully received. Many thanks Paul Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
