Can anyone help me with research into my grandfather Gnr H Beeley 296878 or 8454, both numbers are mentioned on his medal card. he was awarded theVictory and British medals and also the MM although this isn't mentioned on the card. (Why not?)

The details on his medals are as follows

155 HAB, RGA

I cannot find any batteries, battalions or regiments that seem to match.

Apparently he served in Italy and had a horse.

His MM was in the London Gazette on 18.10.1917

Thats all I can find and its driving me insane!!!!!!!!

Any help greatly appreciated

Thanks

Sharon :o

welcome to the forum

MMs are not often mentioned on the MIC cards - they are on their own card

London gazette shows he was from Stockport with a number 296873

Should be 155th (East Cheshire ) Heavy Battery from his 6 digit number.

MM action resulting in award being after approx March / April 1917.

Thanks Roop

His MM was gazetted in October of 1917 so I am assuming that it was awarded around June/July. Is that correct? Do you know where they were a that time?

Family history says he and an officer were sent out on a recce, the officer hid in his bolt hole and my grandfather carried out their assignment alone. Is this the kind of act that would warrant an MM?
