Sutton served with the 4/7th Dragoon Guards, and likely landed at Gold Beach on D-Day 6th June 1944 as part of the 8th Armoured Brigade. He was wounded on 10th August 1944.
Sutton went on to serve in Palestine with the 4/7th. He then looks to have been awarded a Gulf War medal as a civilian member of the BAE, which is British Aerospace Service. The BAE supported the war effort and was based in Dahran, Saudi Arabia. The group was originally sold swing mounted as worn, and it is feasible it is all to one recipient. Sutton would probably have been in his early 60's in 1991.
A fantastic research project. When sold in auction after fees it cost over £600 in summer 2018.
