Congratulatory notes continued to arrive for Douglas and on this Saturday an article appeared in the Scotsman newspaper. A note from Brevet Lieutenant Colonel John Gordon Rees was among those received.

The Scotsman, War Honours page 6th October 1917

“My Dear Page,

I have just heard that you have won the Military Cross. Bravo! My cordial Congratulations for this well merited distinction.

Sincerely Yours

J.G. Rees”

Colonel Rees was a regular soldier, a cavalry officer of the 13th Hussars, attached to the R.W.F. who served throughout the duration of the war.

We may have more on him in the future, as we discover more. Please feel free to contribute if you have any further information.
