Michael W. Connor, a native of Liverpool, served with the South Lancashire Regiment in Mesopotamia from 15 October 1915. He earned the Serbian Bravery Medal in silver - one of 313 such awards for the Great War - before transferring to the Staff of the Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire Light Infantry. In this capacity he earned a 'mention' for service whilst in Mesopotamia (London Gazette 12 January 1920). He sometime thereafter settled in India and joined the Simla Rifles; sold with copied MIC and confirmation of awards.
