life in the Baltic, 2nd July 1919, trying with one officer and
three other men, to stop a mine drifting down on a hospital barge. His action
saved the barge and is to be highly praised. He was loved by his fellow men

conscientious work on all occasions.
campaigns of 1918-1920 in several parts of European Russia were the outcome
of the Russian Revolution of November, 1917, and are closely connected both
with events in Asia (particularly in Persia and in Siberia) and with the
general course of the War in the West. The continued German and Turkish
threats to India by way of Persia and Afghanistan, and the crisis of 1918 in France caused by the withdrawal of Russia from the Entente, form the
background to the North Russian Expedition and the Allied intervention in South Russia
