    It does look like the Crown Order with Swords but to wear that order at the neck would indicate 2nd class. The 1914 Rank List states he had the Crown Order 4th Class (no swords). Perhaps he was given a higher class during WW1, if they were issued?

    Kev, can't find anything about her on the net but she uses both her married name a maden name as a double barrel surname post war. I like the telegram, the welfare bloke if they had them back there must have thrown a track with the prospect of a'wife of' visiting a field hospital, Iexpect they made him send the telegram or perhaps sent it for him. I am sure he did write that he would like her by his side but never dreamed she would try to get there! Rich
