Here is a newspaper cutting announcing the award of the Military Cross to my father.

World War I Christmas Card in the form of a cartoon

The text of the cutting reads:


Lieut. Archie Macgregor, Son of Late Prof. J. Gordon Macgregor Wins the Military Cross.

Yet another Nova Scotian has recently distinguished himself by winning the military cross for conspicuous bravery in France - Lieutenant Archibald Gordon Macgregor, son of the late Professor James Gordon Macgregor, of Edinburgh University, and formerly of Halifax. Lieutenant Macgregor left Halifax when quite a young lad, was educated in Scotland, and was studying in Germany at the outbreak of war. Escaping with difficulty from Germany, he offered for military service in Scotland, and was eventually sent to France, where he is still serving at the front. The number of the sons of Nova Scotia who are "winning their spurs" is fast mounting up, and there is now the added the name of "Archie Macgregor" to the Roll of Honor.
