Interesting questions and to be honest I don`t know, have you tried the Met Museum? I take it he did serve in the Met. However, thinking about it I don`t think that this medal was issued on mass, I think it was a bit like the 1977 one, where on a few got it, but you never know PC Fairhall might have been one of the few.

You don't say what force he is with. If he is Met I don't think he is entitled to the 1935, are you sure on the spelling of the name ?

Although the Met Museum has recently closed they did not have a list of whom the 1935 Jubilee medal was awarded to. But the National Records at Kew do have, so you can check there.

For your info I am suprised he is not entiltled as it was awarded to those coming up for retirement so you would have thought he would have ?

Even though the Met Museum has closed, does anyone known whether they still carry out research? Or is all that information just gathering dust?

Re PC Fairhall, he certainly was a jammy guy, to only be in 10 days and get a gong!!!! Some Bobbies do their enter career and not get one!!!!!
