Gentlemen; a serious question. I've been asked to try and find out why a British sailor in WWI was awarded the Croix de Guerre with Palm. I realise this is a unit citation but, unfortunately, neither the date of the award nor the name of the ship is known (I assume it was awarded to a ship although I know some naval units served in the trenches). The sailor's name was Leonard Ernest Lamb, he refused to talk about his experiences and died in the '50s. If anyone can help by suggesting avenues of research I'd be most grateful.
