D.S.O. Group HELP NEEDED


Recommended Posts

Well, I just received the group pictured below and would like to ask for some help identifying the man who did wear it:

Lt. Col. W. E. Manhard DSO 5th FLD. CO. C. E.

(engraved on the rim of the Colonial Auxiliary foce Long Service medal)

All medals are engraved except the DSO itdelf.

I was wondering if somebody has something on his bio and reasons for all those medals being awarded to him?

Any help is greatly appreciated.
