Hi - I am doing my very best to find the Military Cross Citation for Vernon R Gregg of the KOYLI.

I have gone through 184 pages without success for far...

Any help greatly appreciated

Cheers

Woody

LG 26-7-1918

T./2nd Lt. Vernon Raven Gregg, York. L.I.

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty as battalion intelligence officer in obtaining valuable information, and keeping up liaisons to the companies. When the enemy got round the right flank he ran down the line with instructions for retirement, and by his rapidity, and the nformation he gave company commanders as to the situation, he enabled many battalions, who would otherwise have been surrounded, to fight their way out. Throughout, the ground was swept by shell and machine-gun barrage. He carried out his duties with great gallantry until he was wounded.

I looked his middle name up on the Birth Registers on Ancestry...

(after I'd tried the one from his MIC (Rowen) which was wrong)

I suspect the MC is for March 1918 judging by the Citation.
