I am trying to help friends to find more info about their relation. His details are: 281731 Spr. E.A. Fletcher. Royal Engineers.

He was awarded the Military Medal in the 1WW and that is all they know. Could someone advise me where to find a citation or other details of his actions. Any help would be very much appreciated.

They have got his military medal and two other WW1 campaign medals.

Military Medal citations are hard to come by. Local newspapers are often the best bet.

His London Gazette entry does not give many clues:

LG 23-7-1919

281731 Spr. Fletcher, E. A., Sig. Sub-sec. (Cambridge).

I would suspect that the award was from quite late in 1918.

Hello Steve,

Thanks for your very swift answer. My friends did mention something about Cambridge. So I will try to follow up your lead.

Will let you know if I have any success.
