I wonder if anyone can help me in my search please. My great grandfather received the victory medal and British medal for his services in WW1 in the medical corps. We have a certifictate which congratulates him on behalf of the king for being mentioned in Sir Douglas Haig's dispatches on 7 November 1917. I have searched the dispatches on a website I found, but could find no mention in there, I think that is fairly normal as people were rarely named. I have also looked in the London Gazette archives but also cannot find him mentioned in the supplements for that date or any around it. I am confused! Is there anything that I am missing that could explain this? We have such specific references that I felt sure I could find him and hoped to find out what he did to be awarded the medals. His name was Alfred Carter, he was a Pte in RAMC. Please help!
