Title:
War Office and Ministry of Defence: Military Secretary's Department: Distinguished Service Order and Military Cross Registers
Description:

This series contains eight volumes into which the staff of the Military Secretary's Honours and Awards Branch (MS3, later MS1b) have pasted extracts from the London Gazette. These form a running record of awards of the Distinguished Service Order and the Military Cross announced between 1914 and 1919, and the Military Cross only between 1919 and 1985.

The announcements relating to the First World War are from 'advance copies' of the London Gazette and contain some information on units which was removed for security reasons before publication. Manuscript annotations record, in a large number of cases between 1914 and 1918, the date and place of the action for which the awards were made.
