Andrew: I was interested to see your request concerning 78550 Gnr. Harry Wray. I have his Russian St. George Medal, 2nd Class (#22262). Attached below is what I have on him and I would be interested in anyother information you might have. Regards. Dick Flory

Harry Wray

1914-1915 Star (78550 Dvr. H. Wray, R. F. A.)

Wray went to France on 19 January 1915 and served with 366th Battery, 146th Brigade, Royal Field Artillery. He was awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal “for conspicuous gallantry in volunteering to go out to an observation station in a very exposed position under a heavy shell fire. On arrival he found an officer and the telephonist there killed.”

Hi Lee

This is a long shot as I do not have a regiment and a search has only turned up possibles. Robert Tucker, he was wounded and lost a leg. He was back in England by September 1916. Dont waste too much time on it, I keep trying in the hope I will turn something up.

Thanks

Christina

Lee,

I'd appreciate any details for:

Sgt E Baldwin, King's Liverpool Regiment.

I have just come across, in the local newspaper of January 1917, mention of him being awarded the DCM.

Thanks,

Ken

Could SKS with access to this book please look to see if the following two men are mentioned, battalion war diary suggests they were awarded DCM but I can't find any reference in the London Gazette except for them being MID.

Both are 25th Bn Royal Fusiliers:

12904 L/Cpl. C. Stevens.

13145 CSM A. G. Poole.

Many thanks

Steve

Please note that I haven't forgotten about your requests, I just haven't had the time to do any checks recently. I apologise if this is holding up any research you are doing, I will get back to you soon :)

WJBates - Actually the book doesn't have citations, you'll find them (I presume) on the London Gazette website.

I haven't forgotten Robert Tucker, S. Stopps, T. Watkins & T. W. Lee, but about 25,000 names is a lot to go through without a) losing the will to live and B) losing my eyesight!

Lee,

3 of those are mine. Please don't rush! I'm just sorry I cannot give you any other corroborating details.

Excellent, thanks very much for taking the time and trouble to look for these two men. I now have something concrete to confirm the war diary entry.

Thanks again

At the risk of pushing my luck a bit too far can I please ask you to look for another 25th Royal Fusilier for me?

13359 Cpl. A. Harden

London Gazette online doesn't find him with a DCM search but war diary states otherwise, so here's hoping.

Cheers
