Remembered Today:

Need a bit o' help deciphering a MIC.


Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

The MIC below is that of my Great-Uncle, Pvt. James Craig, who was a regular army soldier in the 2nd Bn. Royal Scots Fusiliers and was killed in action on Oct. 23, 1914 at Ypres. I can read and interpret eveything except the line that is written below the 14 Star block. It says ???? / 2 / 2676. Can anyone read that and tell me if it is significant or not?

Thanks, Ole Bruce

Morning Bruce,

Cl/2/2676 refers to the award of his "Clasp" to the 1914 Star he was awarded. This clasp had to be applied for, it was not issued as other medals were. The application form for the clasp must have been done by his next of kin , as of course he was already dead.

I googled this to see what CL/2/2676 meant - I thought it would be a clasp - and this post came up.  Would anyone have an image of the clasp to the 1914 star?

Many thanks
