RND medal index cards.


Recommended Posts

Can anyone advise if there is a MIC for RND personnel. I am after Francis tebbutts entry to a theatre of war...Gallipoli? Nelson battalion. Had a 14/15 trio. Thanks in advance.

Naval personnel do not have MICs. They are recorded on medal rolls which do not give "entry into theatre". Able Seaman Tebbutt's roll entry is at Kew in ADM 171/129.

For entry into theatre you need his RND Record Card - https://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/D7294931

This shows that he was drafted to the MEF on 5/12/1916 and joined Nelson Bn at Mudros (Lemnos) on 9/1/1916, immediately after the withdrawal from Gallipoli. His medals were claimed by and issued to the Universal Legatee.
