Just helping out a friend who has 3 Great War medals inscribed with "48549 BMBR F Harris R.A.". These turned up in shed hidden in Queen Mary's tin box.

They could potentially be family but its not certain, they come with no other information but would be interested if anybody can shine any light on this old solider.

Many thanks,

Rich.
