Mack,
I have managed to get hold of the Haileybury and Imperial Service College Register from 1862 to 1994. Lists all the students and their War Srevice if you need anything from it.

Hello Andy Pay
I'm looking for information about Reginald Hugh Lawson and his brother Cecil David Norton Lawson. I saw in this topic that you had officer papers and some lovely pictures of his medals.
Did you ever end up finding a photograph?

These two are distantly related to my mother, and i'm spending my lockdown doing family history. I can't send a PM for some reason, so I thought to post in here instead.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. TIA.

My son found pictures of both him and his brother. I've uploaded them here for you.
