    I'm at a loss - hope that somebody can help me. I have a citation that my Uncle received whilst serving with the Indian Army in which somebody has written:
    "Previous Awards Mention L.G. 18/2/38 Mention L.G 27/9/25 6 burma Des".

    Any clues?

    In anticipation - many thanks.

    The search on the LG is a bit hit and miss. You should have his service number on your citation so try searching on that on its own, as well as his name.

    Many thanks everyone
    Thanks RedStan for your suggestion - Herbert is another uncle who received the MC in North Africa with East Yorks Regt. (Frederick) Ingram Wallace served with 1st Btth Dogra Regiment in India & Burma - 'twas he with the Mentions in despatches & a DSO. Since found in London Gazette!
    Trying to trace 2 brothers (with a third, a Gunner, also in need of attention in time) is a confusing business.
