That is certainly good news, I would be interested to know what is the naming on the LSGC, perhaps you could show a photograph if you have the medal?

On the LSGC 4729 SJT. A. SPEAR DEVON REGT. The shooting medal, on one side says THE ARMY RIFLE ASSOCIATION. On the other side.. THE QUEEN VICTORIA CUP 1913 3RD BATTn DEVONSHIRE REGIMENT. Around the rim SERGEANT A. SPEAR. Naming is impressed on both medals. Cannot add photos as useless technology, will ask my daughter to help sometime, sorry.
