Field Marshal Deverell

Post by AJK » 28 Mar 2020 19:05


There seems to be a gap in the assignments for (at that time) Major-General Cyril Deverell (later FM and CIGS) between 1925 and 1927. It appears that he commanded the United Provinces District, India between 13 December 1921 and late 1925/early 1926, and was appointed Quartermaster-General of the Indian Army on 25 February 1927. The London Gazette dated 2 July 1926 (page 4407) announces his award of the Knight Commander of the Military Division of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire with the notation "late General Officer Commanding, United Provinces District, India", indicating that he had given up that posting at the latest in early 1926. Can anyone provide any information on his posting during 1926-1927?
