    Its hard to find out about him as his service record isn't out on the Internet.

    Hi Matt,
    here's his MIC (pretty unlikely to be any other Ralph A Cholerton's!).



    Cheers, Tom

    Excellent research Tom. I see he had a 1915 trio and the India General Service medal 1908 with Afghanistan/NWFF 1919 clasp.
    Regards,

    Jerry

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    One interesting point is the theatre he was serving in, in 1915. MIC states "5F", which denotes the Tochi Valley, NW Frontier.
