    Here we go...
    Not that much detail, but certainly adds a little more meat to the bones.

    Cheers, Tom

    I have some other rather good info for you. You're very lucky in the fact that the War Diary for the battalion is available online. I was just working back from his death to see if there was anything referring to his MM and was, I must admit, surprised to find the following entry (also attached are the entries for the night on which he earned his MM. Enjoy.

    Cheers, Tom
