GT,

The MSM is indeed a difficult one to earn. Do you have his medals, or access to them?

Some info about it here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meritorious_Service_Medal_(United_Kingdom)

They are gazetted, but I couldn't find one for Frank... I aren't the best at driving their search engine though!

Hi Dave
I've had a look in the London Gazette and can't find anything either, I'll have another look later.

Thanks for the MSM link Dave, unfortunately I don't know where his medals are now.  I was thinking of having copies done.

Cheers 'themonsstar' for finding the MSM award details.

Job well done.

I've read up on the Dardanelles campaign, are there any Bn war diaries available to show what the 1/5 Bn got up to in France and what area they were in. I seem to remember  reading somewhere that their Div was near to Albert.
