Cpl Jimmy Dodd of C Company
We don't know which tank crew included Jimmy Didd on 15 September. We do know that he served on with C Battalion and he was probably serving with 8 Company, on 23 April 1917, when he won the MM. Like all those who were considered to have undertaken meritorious action, he was also awarded a Certificate of Merit and a lanyard.

These certificates are always a joy to see. I have quite a few to guys with the Tank Corps badge at the top but none with the MGC badge, so this is particularly nice.
