Recommended Posts

I have New Zealand relative who, according to family history, was in the Mechant Navy and was killed at Archangel. We have never been able to tfind any official record of his death. The family was sent a medal whch I have not seen but it is brnze with laural leaves at the edges. we do not have the ribbons.

Can anybody help.

Welcome to the Forum !

Can you post his name and any MN or other service details.

You describe the medal which fits the Victory Medal,which ordinarily goes with the issue of the British War Medal. If he was MN then he also probably had the Mercantile Marine


Have you searched on CWGC under Merchant Navy ?

His Name was Andrew (Sandy) Bartley. We have no other information but of have asked my cousin who has the medal to check if the is a number perhaps on the obverse.
