Thank you so much for this information. JH Chandler was my great great grandfather. Really nice to have a photo of him.

Such a pity that no one claimed his medal Barbara Ann.

These were issued, on request by the combatant or close family, from about 1921 onwards.

Sadly there are no longer stocks of these medals and no late claims can now be countenanced.

Regards

Rory

Hi Rory
Oh what a pity! I have only just discovered him as my family. Is it possible to see what the medal would have looked like please?
Thank you so much for the feed back.
Kind regards
Barbara
