Hi,I need some help interpreting my GF's Medal Roll.

He is 'Southgate. Bertram.

I would like to know what the 'XIXth CCB' means and in the

'Theatres of war in which served' part of the roll, From/To columns

there is a 0 (From) and W? (To).

Thanks in advance,

Colin

Hi

I would agree, his MIC -

Name:

Bertram Southgate

Regiment or Corps:

Army Cyclist Corps

Regimental Number:

22861

AS for the marks in the columns, I don't think they refer to what the columns indicate, but what they mean, who knows? Maybe something to do with the issue of the medals?

regards

Robert

I am not an expert on this, but I would guess that the "XIX CCB" bit is for 19th Cyclists Corps Battalion.

Bit of reading here : http://www.1914-1918.net/armycyclistcorps.html

Actually XIX Corps Cyclist Battalion, part of XIX Corps.

Thank you Ron!

I'm wondering if the marks in the columns are to do with medals received.

eg: 1st column (0) = 1914-15 Star

2nd column (W) = British War

3rd column ( looks like a V) = Victory Medal

My GF served overseas after 1916 so wasn't eligible for the Star.

I think you have got that correct Colin, it ties in with his medal index card as well.
