MC And 1914 Bar Trio To a Tunnelling Coy RE Officer

Military Cross ( Geo V ) UNNAMED , 1914 Star and slip on bar trio ( MID oakleaf ) 28126 CPL E S JOHNSTONE RE ( Capt on pair )

28126 Cpl Edgar Stuart Johnstone was attested on 7th August and landed in France on 13th August, he served as a dispatch rider and was initially attached to GHQ Signal company but a few weeks later transferred to the 2nd Cavalry Division Signal Squadron



The Military Cross was announced in the London gazette of the 2nd of December 1918

T./Lt. Edgar Stuart Johnstone, 255th Tunn. Co., R.E. • Whilst in charge of a party reconnoitring for enemy mines and booby traps this officer displayed great courage and skill in rapidly conducting their removal. .This undoubtedly saved the lives of many infantry. Later, he made a thorough reconnaissance beyond the outposts and returned with valuable information

From the spring of 1917 the whole war became more mobile, with grand offensives at Arras, Messines and Passchendaele. There was no longer a place for a tactic that depended upon total stasis for its employment. The tactics and counter-tactics required deeper and deeper tunnelling, hence more time and more stable front lines were also required, so offensive and defensive military mining largely ceased. Underground work continued, with the tunnellers concentrating on deep dugouts for troop accommodation, a tactic used particularly in the Battle of Arras ,As Tunnelling Officers particular skills were needed less they turned to the dangerous task of disarming booby traps etc, as the citation for Johnstones MC clearly illustrates.

Medals are generally in GVF condition
