Paul, Thanks for this. On "London Gazette Online" it is easy to miss a name when there are so many entries , unless it is a very unusual surname. I bought the medal at the Britannia Medal Fair last Sunday. Regards, Brian.
I have just acquired an Imperial Service Medal GVR Star shaped (1911-1919) to "Edward Payne" (no middle initial). I have searched the London Gazette Online from 1911 to 1920 (to be safe) and cannot find any entry for him. I would be grateful if the member who has compiled a list of all the gazette dates for recipients of this type of ISM to help me by looking up his records and providing any details available. Many thanks, Brian W.
