World War II

Captain Thomas Victor Somerville DSO OBE MC and Bar (1896-1904)

Captain, Medical Officer. Buried at Suda Bay War Cemetery, Greece. after originally training as a surgeon he went on to be decorated in both WW1 and WW2. He was awarded MC and Bar and OBE in WW1 and was awarded DSO in 1941, shortly before he died. We have recently found that he was recommended for a Victoria Cross instead of the DSO in 1941, but this was overruled by General Wavell.
