We know that Jim Marcham was made a 2nd Lieutenant on 16th July 1940 as a member of the Intelligence Corps. He was obviously promoted later in the war but the London Gazette does not appear to have a record of this. We have no information as to how he was awarded and MBE but the CWGC website attributes this honour to him.
