General List


Recommended Posts

Does the general list mean jobs on staff back at le chateaux ?

Would explain why he (Lt J Short) got 3 MID's (at least) and a french MM

no. It basically means unattached to any particular unit (ie not on the strength of).

Lt.Short would have to have seen action of some sort (he could get a MiD away from any action, but (if the criteria of the award of the Medaille Militaire was the same for Brits as it was for the French) he would have had to recieved an injury in action to be eligable for the medaille militaire).
