As part of my family tree I'm in the process of obtaining whatever documents I can of various family members. I have one medal card for my Gt Grandad Albert Henry Dyton who was born in St Albans in about 1867. In 1901 he was based in Dublin in Arbour Hill Military Prison and barracks. In 1902 he was based in India. He died on 20th October 1923 of mitral and aortic disease and was buried at the Lahore Cantonment, aged 50,profession: Ex Sergeant, Civilian in S+J Employ (this info was given to me by the national archives).
I have included his medal card but I cannot understand what is written near the bottom of the card, can anyone understand this sentence? Also the little symbol which is a cross with four dots what is that? I tried to google 'cross with four dots ww1 medal card' but didn't really get far.
Any military experts make any sense of this? Does this medal card indicate what Battalion he may have been in? and why he transferred from the Dorset Regiment to I.A Supply&Transport Corp? Was this because he was promoted to 2nd Leuitenant? One reason why I have taken interest in this family member is that I do not have any photo of him and was also trying to see if there are any photos out there of who he served with either Dorset Regiment or I.A Supply&Transport Corp.
He died before my nan was born as far as I know.
