After 7 years researching my family members who served in the great war I have at last located and now secured the military medal awarded in 1917 to my grandmother's cousin, I am proud to now be the custodian of the medal and hope it will now stay in the family for years to come,

cheers,

John.

How did you locate this? The death plaque of my great-grandad was bought by someone from eBay and I want to bring it back into the family. Would also like to find his medal if possible as he was awarded the Military Medal. Any help gratefully received, we have been searching for his records for decades and now want to piece the last bits together. Thanks.

Hi John, do you know what happened to his other WWI medals? It is so good that you could return this to the family. Regards, Jerry B.

If you post his details here or on the British medals forum it might be possible that someone can help you

Many thanks all, not sure where the trio went, all I know is from his records his BWM and VM were sent to one of his sisters as he was killed in December 1917 so they may still be in the family somewhere, they may possibly have been sold by the family as both Thomas's parents passed away by WW1 and he was sending some of his army pay home to support his younger sisters,
