just to clear up a couple of points,the term "before montauban/trones wood"it doesn't mean before the dates of those battles,its an old term that was still used in those times,example,"sgt tommy atkins won his VC before the gates of Sevastopol".

wain was with the tank corps when he won his VC,he was in one of their tanks,serving with and commanding their men and earning his VC in their scrap,its a tank corps award,not manchesters,in the manchesters gallantry awards lists,they have claimed awards to officers on attatchment to the regt and rightly so,they were won with the manchesters.
