Capt Thomas Hutton M.C., West Riding Regt

This appears to be the man, in that the 1911 census has him in Yorkshire Regt.. His grandparents came from Yorkshire. I cannot tie him to Channel Islands as on MIC, my assumption is that he married there while on duty, and his wife lived there. I cannot get his actual MC citation
