I found 1922 Honours List ... but I believe there is a mistake ... if you click on Alexander Wallace ... it takes you to an American ... ! ( my opinion is - that's wrong !! ) but I can't find him in the Gazette .... ( though I'm not the sharpest knife in the box when it comes to the Gazette ... but I usually find something !!)

The Wikipedia link is definitely wrong.

The Gazette entry is on page 4321 top right (3 June 1922)

Both those burials would be too early for the General's father, Annie...and Madras is probably too far south ....
