King's Regulations 1743

Recommended Posts

The context is a note on the MIC that the BWM and Victory were returned under the above KR. Does anyone have any info on this regulation?

Thanks,

Stuart

Stuart,

This refers to the medals returned under paragraph 1743 of Kings Regulations 1912. The paragraph relates to the disposal of unclaimed medals and states "Medals which at the end of 10 years, still remain unclaimed will be sent to the India Office (if granted for India Service) or to the deputy director of ordnance stores, Royal Dockyard (Medal Branch), Woolwich (if granted for other service) to be broken up. (Army Order 340 of 1913)".

With reference to the breaking up of medals - there are several threads on the subject that indicate that this may not have always been done.

Marc,

Thanks for your reply. This is one of the most complex MICs I've seen and I still haven't worked it all out. I suspect the medals were reissued in 1927 - either the originals or replacements - and the BWM I have may be either of these.
