Remembered Today:

Mercantile Marine Medal entitlement


Recommended Posts

Would my grandfather have qualified  for the Mercantile Marine Medal as he was a fisherman in the Scottish West coast town of Campbeltown during the period from the outbreak of the war in 1914 until he signed up for the RNR in August 1915 ? Would the waters around the West and North of Scotland be defined as a War Zone during this interim period ?

He was issued with the 1914-15 Star, the BWM and the Victory medal during his war service.
