Captain A L Haughton 1/5 DCLI - WW1 and afterwards
Captain Alfred Lionel Haughton commanded A Company of 1/5 DCLI (Pioneers)on the Western Front in 1916 and later served under Allenby during the Egyptian campaign. I have been able to discover a great deal about this officer's service in WW1 but I have been unable to find out why he was "cashiered by sentence of a General Court Martial on 27 August 1940".
Grateful for any material on Haughton (my wife's Great Uncle), especially any clues to his court martial.
