I'm part of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission volunteer group checking war graves around Scotland for damage or requiring maintenance
I came across Georgina Harcus Mason grave in Inveresk cemetery in Musselburgh and I found from this website she had been awarded a Mention in Dispatches. After a few searches I have been unable to find her mention in Dispatches citation.
Anyone have her citation, her cause of death seems to indicate she was injured as a consequence of the award and these injures contributed towards her death.
I have her grave photo but I'm not sure how to add a photo too my post
