I wondered how promotions were come by in WW1. I do not have enough details of the man - even his true name even .... 'Old Wally' or 'that old b****er' is not quite enough. Though everyone was agreed - and somewhat surprised that he ended the war as a major. And that must have been true as his veteran brothers would soon have demolished him. However, I'll pursue the links with thanks - and look up the battle, too.
