Just to note, I believe these MMs were in relation to prisoners of war and their efforts in escaping.

Let me add another note. The writing at the top was added on two occaisions.

"Record" = ???

div 3a 15/2/82 looks Like a date.

There is no M.I.C. to this chap that I can see so could he have won the MM without ever leaving blighty.

Hi Steve could you tell me why you think the mm winner won it due to services with pow's. I am baffled (nothing new there lol)

cheers S

It's been posted on the Forum that an issue of the Gazette was for MMs to POWs.

The Medal Card says PofW G = Prisoner of War Gazette?

Earlier in the Gazette issue:

"His Majesty the KING has been graciously pleased to approve of the undermentioned rewards in recognition of gallant conduct and determination displayed in escaping or attempting to escape from captivity, which services nave been brought to notice in accordance with the terms of Army Order 193 of 1919. To be dated 5th May, 1919", unless otherwise stated"

He should have an MIC!!

Aha!

Description Medal card of Tubb, William H

Corps Regiment No Rank

Army Service Corps T/29185 Driver

Date 1914-1920

Catalogue reference WO 372/20
