Help to decipher MIC

Recommended Posts

My grandfather served in the 9th Bn Notts and Derby Regt (Sherwood Foresters). On his MIC there is an asterisk against this entry.

At the bottom of the MIC the asterisk has the following besie it

EM/2/2000 - 1.7.171/C of 7.7.21

Any clues as to what this would mean?

Rod,

If I remember correctly the EM prefix is a file prefix for MID emblems.

Hi Rod

As a followup to Andy's post, you will find that he has got two Medal Index Cards, the second one is his "award" card.

Thanks,

Steve, when you say that he will have 2 cards, how do I find his award card? Is that online from the National Archives as well or does that require a personal visit?

Hi Rod

It is on-line. Just search using his Surname and his service number and both mics will come up. The Medal mic is to Private 13370 Albert Fitzgibbon and the award mic is to Private/Acting Lance Corporal 13370 A Fitzgibbon.
