To date the ID bracelet - Clement Arthur Webster was promoted Capt. on 1 April 1915 https://www.thegazette.co.uk/London/issue/29315/supplement/9753

He was a Territorial Army Officer and continued to serve after the Great War. As a Major (promoted to substantive Major on 16 May 1926) he received the Territorial Decoration [T.D.] in the gazette of 4 February 1930 https://www.thegazette.co.uk/London/issue/33576/page/729 (the heading is on page 728). Contrary to the content of the obit posted by Simon in post #10 he retired on 31 August 1948 https://www.thegazette.co.uk/London/issue/39080/supplement/6002
