Hello out there!

I was wondering if any one can help me in a bit of research.

I recently purchased the above medals as a replacement for the ones my Granddad sold years ago

but i noticed that on the medals they have some inscriptions on them and i was wondering if anyone can help me to find out if these poor men died in the war. Sorry if its a daft question but i am a complete beginner in all this.

On the Victory Medal the inscription is L-5548 DVR F. Hollick R.A.

And on the British War Medal is 8348T.S A.M.Dent TR. R.N.R.

Appreciate any help in this matter.

Thanks

Maryann :rolleyes:

Hi Maryanne, Checked my Soldiers Died disc and the CWGC site and neither of the names appear, so looks like they survived. Regards Ralph.
