Remembered Today:

Robert Ernest Eaton - KIA but no Medal Card


Recommended Posts

I am looking into Pte 5026 Robert Ernest Eaton, 8 West Yorkshire Regiment, Killed in Action 03/09/16.

I have the details of the pension his mother received, SDGW details and can research the action he was killed in, but I cannot fond a Medal Card for him?

Any suggestions?

Are you looking at Ancestry or National Archives? Some of the cards were very badly damaged by rodents so might not be scanned on Ancestry.

His name appears in the West Yorkshire Regiment Medal Awards Roll, so it may have been lost or inadvertently destroyed.


Edit - see clk entry above.

Thank you for your help.

I was looking on the National Archives.

I wonder how many others are 'lost'
