Henry Joseph Crossley relinquiching his commision 1919.
You need to sort your computer out so you can search and download pages from the London Gazzette.

On the basis you try simple thing first I just googled his name. You may have course seen or contributed to the considerable amount of material available including letters to and from his mother, letters to the British Medical Journal etc

I would suggest you scan through to see if there is anything of help to you. Have you got a photo? I will look through my Boer War boks to see if there is anything
