Does this MIC say, bottom left, what I think it says?

Agree (certainly not Yanks as first impression seemed)

Which is not what I saw.  Thank you.  What does it mean?

I don't want to say what I see for fear of leading the witness.

Isn't it SWB - Silver War Badge? Listed under Tank Regt I guess?

Only trouble is, I can't find his SWB record (only had a cursory shufti on Ancestry, mind)

However, for comparison, here's the MIC of another Francis Fletcher (who does have a SWB record I could find) which I think clinches it:1688242023_Fletchermic.jpg.e6eb66b21dac5ef4b604a662c0d574b8.jpg

Thanks Pat. SWB trumps SLOB.

Although I quite like SLOB... I bet there's something called SLOB (Surrey Light Ordnance Brigade; Safton's Lancers Of Bengal; Steak: Lean, Old, for Boiling; etc.)

Concur it's SWB. Sorry - I cannot find any record of it either.

Hi,

 

For some reason on Ancestry the Tank Corps SWB roll skips from sheet "Tanks/43" to "Tanks/48". There are some other sheets that are also missing. The yield on FMP also doesn't provide any matches, so my assumption would be that the roll itself is deficient, rather than Ancestry being at fault.

 

Regards

Chris
