Medal Rolls Entry

Recommended Posts

Another one.

What medal would it be?

It would most likely be a single BWM,but could concievably be a Pair{BWM/Victory} or a Star Trio.

If you search the Index Cards using "Young Men" {Not something I do as a matter of course!}

you will have 988 returns,for YMCA Personell,including one Gentleman who goes under the delightful name of "S.R.Walkingstick"

Thank you, I found these two in ten minutes looking for two of the mystery men from the Holmfirth memorial. I should not have been surprised, if a goat can have a medal why not the YMCA men?

Absolutely they would I imagine have been involved in similar duties as Salvation Army,Church Army,TocH ,etc; Running Canteens,Hostelries & Support Organisations for Soldiers on leave etc;

The duties they undertook are shown in the attachment from:

THE WAR WORK of the Y.M.C.A. in EGYPT by James W. BARRETT.

More than equal to a goat's contribution?

I have a single BWM to a member of the Y.M.C.A. Simply the name W. NOBLE. It is only from the MIC that I know he was with the Y.M.C.A. as is such with many similar organisations. By the way Kath, any chance of looking in the Index of your book to see if his name appears. Long shot but worth trying.

Sorry, Jim.

I got the book on interlibrary loan & only copied pages dealing with Gallipoli.

Not sure if there was an index.

The book opened my eyes to the sterling work of the YMCA & other similar organisations.
