Hello Miriam,
I hope I am not too late! My husband's grandfather (Walter Watson Fisher) was awarded a DCM right at the end of WWI, he was serving in France as a gunner in the RA. We have his medal card, the citation from The London Gazette, and a copy of the relevant War diaries for the period, but nowhere dies it say what he actually did to win the medal. The London. Gazette just says for action in a particular area. Is there any other source we can try to find out what he was involved with?
