I think you're on the button there, David. I think it was you who pointed on another thread that I started (on the Cruikshanks) that one could get a MC in the King's Birthday Honours List (June) for distinguished service (ity could be in the field) rather than for a specific act of gallantry. I've found another, Capt H H Burn of the Coldstream Guards, who got his MC in the June 1916 list, died in September, and his relatives received the medal by post.. There is some mention in his Personal Record of an Army Order, dated 28 October 1916, dealing with posthumous awards. Would you have any idea where such Army Orders may be found?
Thanks for your input.
