Unusual to see two DCMs

The Edinburgh Gazette Publication date:14 February 1917
Issue:13051 Page:332
49954 Gnr. A. Barclay, R.F.A.
For conspicuous gallantry in action. He
repeatedly went out alone and mended the
telephone lines under intense fire. On one
occasion he repaired the line in 17 places.
Later, he rescued a wounded man.


And before his promotion to 2nd Lt.

The Edinburgh Gazette Publication date:16 March 1916
Issue:12916 Page:551
8730 Private R. J. Dewar, 2nd Dragoons.
For conspicuous devotion to duty. He
was buried by the explosion of a mine, but
dug himself out in twelve hours and got back
to our lines. He then went out again with
a N.C.O. to the crater, and rescued three
other buried men within 30 yards of the
enemy.

Medal card of Dewar, Robert Johnman
Dragoons GS/8730 Private
Royal Field Artillery Second Lieutenant
