Major Dalpat Singh Shekhawat, MC Jodhpur Lancers

Killed in action 23rd September 1918. Can't find CWGC Record or Gazette - all I have is a news article dated September 27th 2017.

"The Jodhpur Lancers’ commander, Major Dalpat Singh Shekhawat, who was killed in the battle, was posthumously awarded the Military Cross. Even today, the 61st Cavalry Regiment of the Indian Army commemorates the battle as Haifa Day on September 23 every year."

Thanks very much.
