WWI: British War Medal, Victory Medal.
* During the operations in May, Lieut.-Col. Miller displayed the greatest ability and gallantry in command of his battalion, especially during the battle at La Bassee on May 28. Inspired by his leadership, his battalion held out until completeiy surrounded by enemy infantry and tanks, causing many casualties to the enemy in men and material. When ordered to withdraw, what remained of his battalion Lieut.-Col. Miller led his headquarters through the enemy, displaying great daring and skill in doing so. The resistance of the Cameron Highlanders prevented the enemy from turning the right flank of the French troops on the Camerons' left. The determined resistance of his battalion was
largely due to Lieut.-Col. Mliller's powers of leadership and utter disregard for personal safety.
** For conspicuous gallantry in action. He assumed command of two companies,
holding on to an enemy trench with great courage and determination. He set a
splendid example to his men.

Son Henry More about his father Col. G.R.M.H. More, RE and grandfather Capt. G.I.S. More, RN (retd): "My Dad went out to the Middle East at the beginning of 1941 on one of the three Glenships (they carried LCAs) as part of 11 Commando.  He led one of the landing parties at the Litani River operation in Syria against the Vichy French. Nasty business but he got an MC for his efforts - but lost his CO, Dick Pedder, KIA who he thought the world of.  After the commando he joined 7th Armoured Division and became a Desert Rat as assistant to the CRE (Dad was a Sapper).  My grandfather was in the RN from the 1890s and was commander G on HMS Lord Nelson at the Dardanelles operation in 1915/16 then joined an RN mission to the Royal Hellenic Navy (Greek Navy!) for which he got an OBE. My Dad was actually born in Athens in 1918 a week or so before the Armistice. At the end of WW1, grandfather was invalided out for eyesight (an excuse really to reduce the headcount) and spent the years between the wars playing golf etc.  When WW2 came round, he started agitating and eventually got a couple of jobs in UK before they decided he was a bit too belligerent for them at home so they sent him out to Kabrit to run Saunders for Combined Operations (he was born in 1882 so he would have been about 60 when he joined Saunders!). Even when I knew my grandfather (when he was old) he was still bursting with energy and showed me how they taught the sailors to fire Thompsons. Anyway, grandfather took up the Saunders job in June 1942 and my Dad would go down to Kabrit to see him when he came back from the desert on leave.  Since Dad had landed in some pretty crude LCAs at the Litani he probably could tell his Dad a thing or two about landing from the sea.  Then Dad joined SOE and was dropped into the Balkans for 14 months.  Of course when he got out he went back to Kabrit to check in with his Dad.  Then grandfather went on to India with Combined Operations in December 1944/January 1945 (getting ready for the planned Japan landings) while Dad went back to regular soldering in Italy and Greece before returning to the UK in 1945. After the war, Dad served in Egypt (Ismailia) from about 1950 to 1952 when things started to wind up there with Nasser and wind down for the British.  My mother, elder brother and I were there and we all lived on a houseboat on the Sweetwater canal which branches off the Suez canal at Ismailia heading towards Cairo (north of Kabrit). Our boat was an old ML (ML1316 as I recall) which Dad worked on getting the engines rebuilt."

* Recommendation for the award of the Distinguished Service Order to A/Lt.Col. F.R.H. Morgan: For conspicuous ability and leadership in command of his Bn. during the 27th and 28th May, his Bn greatly reduced by casualties held a long sector at ROUGE CROIX. No reserve except the carrier platoon was available. By his skilful dispositions, by his personal example of bravery where enemy pressure was heaviest and by his very able use of his carrier platoon he maintained his line intact against heavy enemy attacks by A.F.Vs and Infantry.
Recommended by Brig. N.I. Whitty, O.C. 133th Infantry Brigade. [Recommendation provided by Mr Alain Brogniez]

I can't say how many of them were taken prisoner but I do know that there were quite a lot who wouldn’t leave the wounded who couldn’t be evacuated. They did a magnificent job their efforts will understandably go down in history as the most heroic stand ever made by heroes of any nationality.”

Mrs Stella Marsh writes: "My uncle Percival Eric Mott was a member of the Calcutta Light Horse, when he was able to join the army he trained in the Bangalore Cadet Collegen then to Mhow in Indore. He was with the 8th Indian Division in Meirut. He travelled by train across the Sind desert to Karachi, then by sea to Basra in Iraq. At some point he became the youngest Major in the army but I don't know when. He travelled across the desert to Transjordan - Palestine; across Sinai and over the Suez Canal and into the Egyptian desert; they held the enemy at Ruiweisite Ridge until new troops arrived - ultimately all of this became the Alamein Line. The next treck was the 1500 miles from Egypt to Tunis, hard driving over awful desert. Once in Alexandria he was posted away from his British Section and took over an Indian Infantry Brigade HQ Signals section. They drove across Sinia through Palestine and up into Lebanon to train as a Mountain Division, for operations along the spine of Italy. He landed at Taranto in December 1943. They had some grim battles, including Casino and breaking through the Gothic line and then on North. The captured the independent state of San Marino and then continued North. Near Forli they were pulled out for rest and recuperation but before this could happen they were ordered to Salonika in Greece. VJ day was followed by orders to return to India first to Karachi then on to Sialkot in the North followed by a sudden move to Poona near Bombay (1000 miles away). He was then posted to Shillong 800 miles North East of Calcutta. Ultimately he saw the British flag pulled down and the new one hauled up on 1st September 1947."

A relative writes: "We also know that early in the war he was attached to a unit involved with a radar station (presumably experimental) in Cornwall and now know, thanks to help from Sheffield University that they were working on developing radar during the war. Other than that we have no proof but family hearsay of the following: Lt Mounter was involved in the Normandy Landings. Prior to joining the Royal Fusiliers he was in the Indian Army (we know he was fluent in Urdu and another Indian language, so this may be correct). He fought in Holland and was injured, possibly blown up in a jeep (throughout his life he did have tiny bits of shrapnel appear in his skin which he had to have removed). He was in hospital in Holland in 1944. He was mentioned in Despatches *. According to the home for retired officers in Richmond, where he died, he had 'a distinguished war record'."
