I have found over the years that a lot of recipients of foreign awards, their MIC will have a single forename and the LG would have a second name.

I have over 70,000 names on my database so come across this quite common.

Peter. Which one is correct?   If there is a correct one ?  Lyn.

I don't think either is more correct, one just has more information.

If you had the medals and wanted to add the Memorial Plaque. The M. I. Card shows John Jones or the name on the CWGC casualty list for the same soldier.  John William Jones.?.     Lyn.

If you're certain, thanks to the service number, that the differing names do refer to the same man, then to me it would seem best to cite the most thorough source.

As a former librarian I would have created a catalogue entry "Jones, John (John William), 1889-1917" [or whatever dates are accurate], but I appreciate that this may not fit with the style you are using.
