    Help with a medal card...

    Recommended Posts


    Does anyone have any idea about this...

    Does this mean he only arrived in France in August 1918?

    It looks to be a very minimal career for someone with a so potentially interesting pedigree....

    For those with a bit more experience with these cards... what do you think he did with his life 1900-1917?

    Did he retire from the army in 1920?

    Chris - Intelligence Officers, often have what is called 'concealed service'. The details are not revealed. To be a Captain at that time shows previous service and it must have been pre- Intel Corps. I would think France and the date refers to a posting to France - possibly to check on prisoners - but who knows ? You will note the added bit about applying for medals - so he must have had the entitlement of two, or three.
