Maurice Bell

Maurice (centre in the photo above) was in the Army Medical Corps, in the First World War. He was awarded the Belgian Croix de Guerre in July 1918. The photo below shows the actual Croix de Guerre awarded to Maurice. This could only be awarded to non-Belgians if they had performed an act of heroism on Belgian soil. The certificate was destroyed when Nypro works exploded.  The pages of the London Gazette confirming the award are here:
