Notes

-Major Pole-Evans received his fist citation for an MC in 1918 when his brigade came under heavy shell fire and began to suffer heavy casualties. Pole-Evans and a few men cleared a blocked road and his calmness and control under fire caused many casualties to be saved. in 1919 he received the first bar for conspicuous gallantry and great initiative on many occasions during forward reconnaissance missions, bringing back valuable information, despite great personal danger. He was awarded the second bar in July 1919 for his skill and gallantry under heavy fire east of Ephey on three successive days. The Imperial war Museum has a number of Major Pole-Evans service books and papers relating to his appointment to the British Military Mission in South Russia August 1919-October 1922.
