Neville,

Pte Edward Rush, B Coy, 4 VB and 5449, 1 VSAC, Norfolk Regt arrived home 16 June 1901 with the first returning Volunteers. If engraving is limited to the first returnees to Norwich as you have wondered, Rush might be expected to have an engraved tribute medal. The attached suggests otherwise.

On the other hand, Pte Walter Albert Rush C Coy, 4 VB and 5542, 1 VSC, got home 12 August 1901. Different companies but adjacent numbers in the roll...might Walter’s and Edward be related and it is Walter’s medal described in the clipping?

Rob.

Well, Rob, that rather confuses matters ….

I had tentatively come to the conclusion that all members of the 1st VASC received engraved medals (whether presented on 16 May or 12 Aug 1901).
This would include both Edward and Walter Albert RUSH.

I suppose all I can say is that all the engraved examples I have records for are to members of the 1st company. However, I’m not entirely sure what that means now…!
