Remembered Today:


Military Medal - Date of Army Order

Recommended Posts



I've recently found this record of a military medal award made to a family relative. I understand there were no citations generally made with this award and I already have a copy of the London Gazette announcement.

I’ve  recently become aware of a number of casualty list entries for the same relative.  

He is recorded as wounded on 28/4/1916 and LG listing was published 23/8/1916. I believe the LG announcement would routinely be published 2-3 months after the event occurred so I’m trying to explore the possibility that one of his casualty events may be linked to the MM award.


My question is, can anybody explain if there is any significance to the last line on this document, the “Date of Army Order” i.e 1/9/1916 ?
