Thanks for these chaps. Very interesting I had a look through the sites. I decided to splash out in the end on the book that contained the particular info I wanted, which is of a personal note and was the reason why the MC was awarded to my grandfather: Artists Rifles 1914-1919 Roll of Honour.
'BRIASTRE, 20th October 1918. For marked Gallantry and determined leadership. He was in command of a company, and under heavy machine-gun fire, dashed forward with a few men, shooting several of the enemy with his rifle and capturing the guns. Later, finding that the company on his flank had not reached its objective, he led a platoon and attacked the enemy on his flank.
I wish I'd had a chance to meet him. He was also an OBE and CBE. It is very humbling reading through the book on all the amazing acts of bravery that people carried out.
It also says he was mentioned in despatches. I've been told that these have recently been made available online but I'm trying to find out where.
