This is a list of known medal to the 109th Co. Imp. Yeo. (Yorkshire Hussars) that was in a collection I assembled a long time ago. Perhaps they will be of interest to those who now have the medals in their own respective collections. The preceding "C" indicates the medal(s) were confirmed. The numbering starts with 53 as there were 52 medals preceding these in the collection.

I can't thank you enough for all this superb information. Such invaluable detail.
I'm really blown away by your generosity.
I already have just one Tribute from Yorkshire medal. Horace Ford. When I bought it I had the choice of two but could only afford one. Fortunately I chose this one. Not only was Horace a Sheffield man which is where I live but also he was resident in a children's home which is about a mile from where I now sit. Could hardly be more local.
Your help has given me much to look forward to.
Thanks again.
Chris
