Merchant navy


Recommended Posts

I have just been given family medals to William Heslop all I know he was in merchant navy ww1 and we come from Northumberland but our family tree as it is lists only 1 heslop who appears to have died in 1911 so any help gratefully received. My family name is Paul.

Hello Sue,

Welcome to the forum. Is there a name and number inscribed around the rim of the medals? There are 2 merchant seamen who were awarded medals in WW1:- William Heslop, born Newcastle upon Tyne, 1862; and William Heslop, born Wallsend, Northumberland, 1881. Could either of these be your man?
