My grandfather served with the Buffs and although I did a search nothing about him came up. I went to the East Kent Regiment section and out of curiosity I clicked on the images button. I saw a set of medals that looked similar to those of my grandfather - I have his dress medals - and when I enlarged the photograph they were exactly the same. I didn't think there was anything unusual in that and I returned to the thumbnail photos. It was only when I read what was written under the photograph that I discovered that these were in fact his medals; RSM FJL Jeffery. To say I was astounded was an understatement. It raised a number of questions in my mind - how did the medals appear on this website, who posted it and where are the medals now? I had always understood that the medals had been buried with him but perhaps not. Can anyone supply any of the answers? If I am in the wrong section of the forum I am sure someone would be kind enough to point me in the right direction.

Welcome to the forum, TLJ.

That must have been quite a surprise.

I don't know how common was the practice to inter the medals with the deceased.

As regards the provenance of the medals, I have sent you a holding response in your second post.

Best wishes
