John Fuller's Medal Index Card shows he was entitled to a pair.  The MIC does not state this, but he does appear on the Soldiers Died register, showing he was serving with the 11th Battalion and was killed in action on 6 July 1918.  This also shows he previously served with the Hertfordshire Yeomanry under service number 10624.  CWGC notes he is buried at St. Venant-Robecq Road British Cemetery, Robecq.

The war diary shows the unit was in the line, in the St. Florin sector around this time and was shelled by enemy artillery on the 6th.
