MM Medal Card:

Note that you have to pay to see the details. See the FAQ on the NationalArchives site, or you can visit Kew and look them up!

The Military Medal notification should be published in the London Gazette (available online) but I can't locate it, yet.

Edit : The MM card will probably have the Gazetted date on it.
