Help with WWI service record abbreviation "Award M C C"

Recommended Posts

Attached is a copy of my grandfathers service record card with the notation "Awarded M C C" at the bottom.


His other records indicate he participated in the Cambrai campaign as part of the 11th Engineers.


Can anyone help with what the MCC stands for. Greatly appreciated as I have search the internet for hours.....

It could be an abbreviation for an award of the Meritorious Service Citation Certificate (MSCC). The recipient of an MSCC could have applied to have it converted to a Purple Heart after 1932. You will need to see if an award card exists at the NPRC in St. Louis. Good luck.
