You are most welcome. Attached is a photo of the WW1 trio, Messina Medal, and Constantinople Medal awarded to Colour Sergeant J. Pickering R.M.L.I.

Dear Keith History Buff,

 

I don't think they are all on the Find my Past version of the medal roll - I couldn't see RMB 59 Carter, Henry, born 27th. January 1886.

 

However, thanks for pointing out the existence of the roll - I am sure it will be more inclusive than the men's service records regarding Pip, Squeak and Wilfred.

Dear Sea Jane and 58 Div Mule,

 

This looks like an awfully interesting book, but being out of print the price has risen! Perhaps my local library can find a copy for me to borrow.

If you promise to send it back, I can lend you my copy ...

Or there are a few copies round the country, so inter-library loan may work.

Skindles appears to be a restaurant in Maidenhead, unless there's another one I don't know about........

Apparently my local library can only get books on inter-library loan from other local libraries in Greater London.

 

I have found used copies on the web from £32-80 to £310-79, and ordered a £32-80 one. Thank you for your amazingly kind offer, but i wouldn't dare upset a Lieutenant-General!

:) I'm quite fluffy really.

For a Lieutenant-General ... 

 

(Just checked, and that's equivalent to a Vice-Admiral RN. Coo.)

Hi,

I get the impression that when Jack Marshall was compiling his medal roll, that he happened to come across obituaries for all those men that I mentioned, and that it was their obituaries that mentioned they were awarded the Messina medal. There are some useful notes on that roll, accessible via FMP.

Thanks, 
Keith
