This is probably a false interpretation but is it possible that the man's full name was Arthur James Scott Brigg?  Sorry I don't currently have subscription to any sites to check.

There is no Arthur James Scott or Brigg on this list of Distinguished Service Cross recipients https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Recipients_of_the_Distinguished_Service_Cross_(United_Kingdom)

Interesting thought Artifis

Between 1880 and 1925 I can find:-

Seven Arthur Brigg, one James Brigg and no Scott Brigg so that would suggest that Brigg is the place rather than a name.

With no concrete information it is very difficult to be sure whether the man I found was the correct one.

In WW2 you would have  have  to be an officer to get the DSC I think.

I think we need  medal expert to look at them to see what they think.

I've posted on the WW2 board to see if a medal expert can give their thoughts on the medals.

I did find this medal listing for an Arthur James Scott (possibly merchant service?)
I think...
AT is Atlantic Star
PA  is Pacific Star
BU is Burma Star
WM is War Medal

DOB gives a possible Arthur born 1924  Prestwich mmn Rice so no connection to Brigg or Nottingham.
