I am researching the above Tank Corps Officer, if anyone has anything on him, especially which Tanks he served in (numbers/names) or any photographs, I'd be very grateful please?

Initial investigatiosn show he deployed with F Bn on May 1917 in the rank of captain and was awarded the MC in June 1918. As a captain he would not have commanded a tank although he could have been a section commander and the MC does not appear to be linked to a speicific action
