William D.'s Story

I dont know very much about Uncle Billy as a person but from what I have researched so far he was Mentioned In Dispatches in 1914 and was awarded the Order of St George (Russia) 4th Class . I have not found why yet he was awarded this medal but I will keep looking. He was killed in action on 3 March 1917 and is buried at Courcelette War Cemetery
