I was in the Archives today digging around and came across several boxes entitled CGR Medal claims.
I doubt these boxes have been touched in many many years and I was surprised at what I found. The standard QSA medal roll pages where there as well as typed nominal rolls of men who had lodged claims, also some very interesting remarks next to some of the men's claim. This sheds a bit more light on the obviously very important work these chaps carried out.
There are hundreds of pages all broken into various sections and departments of the CGR and will take several visits to absorb all that there is.
I have attached several examples of the pages and some write up as written by the General Manager of the CGR.
