I was told by the London Scotish Museum some yers ago that the serial number might not be correct.

Accoording to the MIC, Serial No. 519741 was allocated to Private Alexander Laing 14th London Regiment so I see nothing obviously wrong with the serial number. Alexander was entitled to the British War & Victory Medals and are on roll reference TP14/101 B7 Page 613.

Another of him. Poor condition sadly.

Had a bit of a play with the photo, as the original is quite poor it'll never be brilliant, but hope you like anyway:

Thanks Steve. Medals not with the family now as my mother delt with her aunt's estate and they were not found then. I think I recall he was only in F&F for the last month of The War.
