Does anyone have the battalion diary of the 2nd Battalion QOCH for November 1916. I'm looking for more information on the action for which CSM William Templeton was awarded the DCM Citation London Gazette 26/1/1917 "For conspicuous gallantry in action. He collected a party of men, and by his initiative was able to hold up the enemy's advance, rendering most valuable service at a critical period." He received 5 bullet wounds in this action, fortunately, none life threatening.

Sorry can't help with war diary, but I  thought I'd give this post a nudge. There's nothing for November 1916 in the OH, but they were involved in the actions at karajakoi and Yenikoi September and October (OH p179) and 6th December 1916 in a demonstration towards the railway line in the Struma valley where they rushed an enemy post (OH p249).

Thanks Gardenerbill, interesting.

Thanks too jonbem. Yes I know they haven't done any Salonika diaries yet. Thought there might be  chance someone had it.
