Remembered Today:

A. C. Dixon

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm looking for information about a certain A. C. Dixon. He was an officer with the Tank Corps certainly at the end of the war.

He is supposed to have been 2/Lt at the beginning of the war, and a Captain towards 1919.

He is thought to have been awarded MC, 1914 or 1914-15 Star, BWM and Victory Medal with Palm.

Could anyone find some more about this man?

Regards,

Jan

The only AC Dixons records are as follows

WO 339/28041 DIXON A C, 2/Lieut

WO 374/19850 DIXON, Major A C H L

There are however a lot of Dixon A's

I'll probably be going to the PRO on Thursday and will check them out for you. If he's not one of them, I'll check the MIC's for an AC Dixon officer.

Hello Michael,

I'd really appreciate that.

I tried the London Gazette but only found one Dixon who got the MC and he wasn't the one we were looking for.

No problem with the look-up. I have little success with MC citations unless I search on the full name. Hpoefully I'll have that for you on Thursday

The November 1918 Army List, shows a Temporary Lt AC Dixon of the Tank Corps with a seniority date of 26 July 1918. He has no awards although they could have been gazetted at a later date of course.
