Milsom, Lieutenant Maurice Gregory M.C.

Medal & Mortality index

The Military Cross was instituted as a Decoration on December 28th, 1914, to reward Distinguished Services rendered by Officers of certain ranks in the army in time of war. Bars may be added for additional acts of gallantry. Since August 1st, 1918, it has, like the D.S.O., been awarded for "services in action" only.

London Gazette 28th May 1915

Maurice Gregory Milsom to become temporary 2nd Lieutenant

Edinburgh Gazette 30 July 1917

Temp 2nd Lieutenant Maurice Gregory Milsom, R Fus :
For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. When in command of a platoon he showed the greatest gallantry in leading bombing attacks during which he took many prisoners and drove strong parties of the enemy out of our trenches with heavy loss. His courage and dash had a wonderful effect upon his men.

Lieut. | Milsom, M.G. | 26. 7.17 | Military Cross



What I am now attempting to achieve is the coverage of an earlier London street directory in 1832. This is unique, plus images of the 1842 Robsons directory which confirm earlier entries and also carry much more trade detail about a premises or person. Here is the index of streets in 1832, many with 1842 imagery added.
And next is the complete 1940 London street directory - this will take some months to complete, so bear with me!
