Ladies & Gents,

Pal's,

knowing of my 'anorakism' with anything to do with 'Wars' my Sister in Law has shown me a family medal in her possession, its the bronze circular one that I think it is refered to as the Victory Medal!

Anyway I jotted down the details and have tried to find him on the National Archives on line MIC section but I have failed to get a match! (Failed to get anything actually!) Now i must admit research is not my strong point so i was wondering if anybody else with a bit more intelligence than me can find an MIC for him please?

The medal is inscribed; R L LAVERSUGH. RAMC. With either the numbers 1887 or 1337!

Thanks in advance for any help or guidance!

Regards and best wishes,

Scottie.

Jon,

You are more than likely correct! however I was just wondering and trying to fathom out what he would have been doing from 20th Aug 1914 to the Feb 1915?

Probably with No.3 Stationary Hospital. War Diary exists for 3 Stationary Hospital covering dates 1914 Aug. - 1919 Mar. (WO95/4098).

Jon,

Do you know if he went over in Aug 1914 does that automatcically make him 'An old Contemptable' or would he have had to come under fire? not sure how you qualified for that 'Honour'?

Cheers,

Scottie.

Scottie,

I'm not a 100% sure but I think it makes him an Old Contemptible but he didn't qualify for the C&R because he didn't come under fire in that given time frame (5th August - 22nd November)

cheers, Jon
