Sold with a large Normanton Urban District Council illuminated testimonial Certificate, recording the award of both the MM and MSM, mounted in a heavy wooden glazed display frame; a Post Card portrait photograph; and two news cuttings, one announcing his death and another celebrating ‘Local Heroes’ which reads:

‘Company Sergeant Major Bert Nicholson, Normanton, awarded Meritorious Service Medal, Military Medal, and twice mentioned in despatches.

Company Sergeant Major Bert Nicholson, of Princess-street, Normanton, has this week been notified by the War Office that he has been awarded the Military Medal, for which he was recommended as the result of a particularly smart piece of work in March, 1918. He is an old soldier, having enlisted in the Royal Scots Regt. in 1892. The following year he was sent out to India, and served through the whole South African campaign from 1899 to 1902, being badly wounded in the leg. When the present war broke out he volunteered for service in 1914, and was sent out to the Dardanelles in 1915, taking part in the Suvla Bay landing, during which he was wounded. After being in hospital for some time he was invalided home as unfit for further service, but was recalled and sent out to France in March 1917. When the Armistice was declared he was in the line at Mons. C.S.M. Nicholson, who was in the 6th Batt. York and Lancs. until he was demobilised a short time ago, is a native of Spofforth, and he is very well known in the Harrogate district, especially in theatrical circles. For many years he was employed at the Palace, High-street, Normanton, in the days when Mr Dobite was manager, and he has also taken charge of large theatrical enterprises in London and the provinces. In the recent campaign, in addition to receiving the M.M., he was also awarded the Meritorious Service Medal, and has been twice mentioned in despatches. He is at present employed on the railway at Normanton.’

Herbert Henry Nicholson died at Bradford on 8 March 1939, aged 66.

Note: No record has been found of his wound in the Boer War, nor of his mentions in the Great War.

I wonder why DNW don't mention he is only entitled to a QSA with CC. The KSA and other bars are self-awards.

Hello Mark

My response to your post: www.angloboerwar.com/forum/5-medals-and-...tions?start=24#65740

From The Register you can get a list of QSA & MMs and a list of QSA & TFEMs - cross-referencing them will give you the answer.
