Desertion

Medal Card shows this soldier

- did not enter Theatre of War

- did not receive Victory Medal

- did receive British War Medal

BUT . . . (and see Attachement) does it state "Deserted" in the wording on the Card, and if so is the Army abbreviation that follows a "King's Regulation" type of circumstance or detail?

Thank you

Hello Peckham,

No, the wording on the Medal Index Card does not refer to any King's Regulations.

It says "Rtd (Medal Returned) Deserted, CRV (Certified Returns Voucher) *17/B (Which is the unique number of that Voucher) on 2nd December 1922. The last bit is an Audit/admin number 7599 Adt.

This number, Adt 7599 is always repeated in the bottom right hand corner of the card. The other number NW/4/13949, is the file number for notes about the situation.

Regards Mike Jones
