Notes for Major General Sir Archibald PARIS KCB
Major-General Sir Archibald Paris, KCB (1861–1937) was a British Royal Marine officer who commanded the Royal Naval Division in World War I. He was father of Brigadier Archibald Paris, who served in World War II in Malaya.

Paris commanded the Naval Division from its concentration in Antwerp and he was seen to have preserved the particular identity and character of the Division while it fought alongside the Army. On 14 October 1916, he was wounded in the shoulder, the back and he lost his left leg and consequently had to relinquish his command.

He died on 30 October 1937.

For his war service, Paris was made a Commander of the Belgian Order of Leopold (with Swords), awarded the Belgian Croix de Guerre and the French Croix de Guerre.[1]
