Some ads & my pub pages
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!
Medal & Mortality index
The Military Cross was instituted as a Decoration on December 28th, 1914, to
reward Distinguished Services rendered by Officers of certain ranks in the army
in time of war. Bars may be added for additional acts of gallantry. Since August
1st, 1918, it has, like the D.S.O., been awarded for "services in action" only.
WORNUM, 2/Lieutenant William Esmond ... ... ... ... ... R.G.A.
WESTOURTRE, 28th July, 1918. For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. This officer's battery came under heavy shell fire while he was on duty as section commander, but by his coolness and determination he kept the guns in action all night and the next day. On one occasion, one of his detachments having suffered heavily, he personally acted as layer to one of the guns.
