Source: Earned the Military Medal for “Bravery in the Field” during the actions at the Somme September 1916.
One of the more colourful service records I have reviewed. Ralph Cecil Sheridan, reg. no. 53504 rose to the rank of lieutenant from the ranks and earned the Military and Medal with Bar from his actions in the Somme.
But, he wrote some bad cheques later in his service career and was convicted for this and cashiered, losing his position in the army and serving time.
