Hi,

I am trying to trace the citation of an MM award to a Private Joseph Carter of 15th (the kings ) Hussars, who was killed in action during the battle of cambrai 25/11/17. I have found the entry in the london gazette, but of course, no citation. Can anyone help?

many thanks,

Neal.

welcome

sadly MM citations are rarely gazetted for ww1 - a local paper or regimental records are your best bet

he lived in Croydon but was from Brighton

Hi, thanks....how do you know he lived in Croydon? I know he was from Brighton. His mothers address in my relatives war diary - he died with Joseph.

Cheers, Neal.
