Hi Guys

Would it be possible to receive a Silver War badge only. I have Pte. William McStay, North Irish Horse being issued the badge but can't find any other medals for him. According to the medal card for the badge he enlisted on 22 March 1916.

My Great Uncle Basil Mowbray Kirby enlisted on 28/12/1916 in the RGA,57 Co,no 135408 and was discharged 20/3/17 under sickness para 392 XVI without ever serving abroad - no MIC but there is an SWB card

Hi Guys

Thanks for the replies. If he served overseas he must be entitles to a medal. Any ideas what might have happened to the MIC. Is the SWB Roll available on line.

Not necessarily - only if he served in a theatre of war - if his overseas service had been in India for example he wouldn't be entitled.

He definintly didnt serve in India but he may have went to France. What could have happened to his medal card.
