    thanks for the links.

    From what I understand, he must have died due to wounds recieved in the war to qualify for the cross.... but this would have been about 40 years after the war was over?

    Is there any chance in finding out how he was wounded?

    What is the "For service at the front " badge for? Civilian dress after the war?

    Interesting, there was a death reported in the British press about 15 - 20 years ago of an ex-serviceman (a WWI soldier I think), due to migration of a bullet in the skull - death being recorded by the coroner as from wounds received fighting the enemies of the king.

    Wonder what the story was here similar "late" death or a replacement Cross issued?
