Anyone know where I can find the actual citation for a "Mention in Dispatches" (WWII) - if such thing exists? The Father in Law was in the Desert Rats during WWII (1st Batt Royal Tank Regt) and I found his medals the other day and he has the Italy Star (amongst others) and it has a Mentioned in Dispatches oak leaf. I have found the relevant entry in the London Gazette which just states name/rank/No ... Mentioned in Dispatches but nothing as to exactly what he did. Apparently he pulled someone out of a burning tank then carried him to safety but its all a bit of a mystery. Trouble is demntia has taken hold and he cant tell us what he got it for.
