Great War Victory Medal Identification.

Recommended Posts

Alongside my Grandfathers Victory Medal is another which i'm trying to identify. It appears that the inscriptions around the edge have been deliberately damaged. I can only make out a few letters but the last 3 letters appear to spell out 'WAR' where the regiment would be. Any ideas what that could be ?

Maybe Warwickshire Regiment?

the two possibilities that come to my mind is :- R. WAR. R. or WARWICK. YEO.  (Royal Warwickshire Regiment or Warwickshire Yeomanry). As there is a full stop after WAR. then the former former is the most likely.

Very interesting Jim. There appears to be 2 full stops after WAR.   . but not enough space for three letters. There does seem to be the remnants of a letter, I initially thought a T or Y, in the middle of the dots.

The two dots probably confirm R. WAR. R. as the regiment.
