Medals and Plaque & Scroll to different people: What were the regulations?

Recommended Posts

Apparently the medals and plaque and scroll of George Christie, 706898, 54 CEF were allocated to different people. See the page from his record below:

Maggie Christie was his half sister. He gave her as his next of kin on his attestation form. (She wasn't actually his next of kin as there were full siblings.)

He made a will leaving everything to her.

If I am reading this document correctly the medals were allocated to Maggie Christie (presumably following the terms of the will), but the plaque and scroll were allocated to James Christie since he was the next of kin as he was a full brother.

 

Have I got this right?

Were there different rules for who received the medals and the plaque & scroll?
