 R.S.M. O. Crawford

There is no record in the 25th medal cards of someone with the surname Crawford. However he does appear in the following entries in The Londoner :-

 V.1 No.1 pg.14 - Oct 1916
Here R.S.M. Crawford describes his time in the Boer War, mentioning that he previously served as a Sgt. in the Scots Guards up to 1899.

V.1 No.5 pg.102 - Mar 1917
In the Second Battalion notes it mentions that S.M. Crawford is in the UK on leave and awaiting disposal.

V.3 No.1 pg.12 - Aug 1918
1st battalion notes it mentioned that R.S.M. O. Crawford had been wounded in France.

Roy Denison, the son of Harry Denison, sent me the photo entitled "R.S.M. Crawford", in which he is clearly in tropical uniform.
