The photo looks like an officer in the Royal Artillery dating from

the time of WW1 or later.  So cannot be this Crofton.   Correct name appears to be Morgan Samuel Crofton (not that given in the topic heading).

Hi Kenny

You are correct his name is Morgan Samuel Crofton.

As for the photo of him, it appears in the The V.C. and D.S.O. Book, Distinguished Service Order 1886 - 1915 Vol II Page 5

1879Graves

From my long experience always take what you find 'with a pinch of salt' - reference books do not necessarily get it right - however in this case you may have the previous entry (I do not have a copy of VC/DSO to hand to refer to). The image I think is of Major Maltby Crofton DSO, Royal Artillery - awarded DSO LG 1 Jan 1916 (page 572).

1879graves,

You could also look at Malby Crofton DSO - his father Colonel Malby Edward Crofton (4th Foot?) who served in the AZW and also ABW.
