I actually found this citation on the 17th June whilst looking for another BEF citation. The coincidence in dates made me decide that was a good enough reason to post it up on here. Looking at the officers signing it off suggests he wasn't with his regiment but a fairly new arrival in France and waiting to get posted to one of the Kent battalions. The citation doesn't say what he was awarded but the TNA have him down as a Military Cross. As ever any further info greatly appreciated like when he was commissioned? http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/SearchUI/Details?uri=D7357160 Edit: The London Gazette has him getting his MC in the 20th December list. First names and service number added.
