Remembered Today:

Victory Medal returned for adt


Recommended Posts

On the medal index card for a Gunner, RFA who earned a pair, this is noted:

"VM ret'd (1743 KR 1912) 8136/Adt."

I know KR will be King's Regs, but what is 1743 of 1912, please?

I understand that King's Regulations (1912) para 1743 states:

"Medals which, at the end of 10 years, still remain unclaimed, will be sent to ... the deputy director of ordnance stores, Royal Dockyard (Medal Branch), Woolwich ... to be broken up."
