Evening,

Recently picked this QSA off eBay to "Civ: Clerk IM Michel".

The medal rolls show Civilian Clerk J (sic) Magnus Michel in the Provost Marshal office, roll signed by Mjr RM Poore 7th Hussars. Poore was the Provost Marshal at the time of the trial and execution of Breaker Morant and Handcock.

I would like to think Michel and his fellow clerk James Fisher were intimately involved in the administrative work involved in the trial. I am not sure I can ever prove this through the usual research avenues, archival material etc. There is nothing in NASA for instance.
