old sparky Posted 20 November , 2013 Share Posted 20 November , 2013 I have the MIC of 1126 Cpl H A Gunner RFA which has an entry on the reverse apparently from Oi/c Records asking for authority to dispose of the medals. This entry is dated 1922 and Cpl Gunner was killed at Transloy in 1916. Can anyone help me on two questions please? 1. Would the request for disposal arise from a failure to find a next of kin? 2. What does disposal mean, Scrap? As medals are often all that is left of the fallen it seems very sad that in some cases they were never issued.
