Hi, I have a WW1 tio named to CPL H.E.Russell D.S.C. Any idea what the DSC stands for? Surely not the naval decoration as this man belonged to the 11th Infantry and was not an officer.

According to the UK National Archives reference, "D.S.C." is the abbreviation for the South African "Divisional Signal Company"
