    London 1918, the Armistice and Gallantry research

    Search the historical London street directory, and London pub history site including early street addresses in London through the Victorian pub history of London. This search engine is not brilliant, try address searches in the main google search to get better results. Searches on people names do appear to work, I think. Let me know!

    LA VACQUERIE, 2nd December, 1917. For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty.
    When he had been wounded, knowing that only a few officers survived, he returned, after having his wound dressed, with a number of men who had lost their way. With these men he reinforced the battalion, got into touch with the battalion on his left, and helped to take up a new position under the most difficult conditions.
