Hello Everyone,

I am attempting to research the career of Joseph C. Patterson, OBE.

His medals are: OBE 2nd type (Civil Division), Defence Medal, War Medal, 1953 Coronation Medal.

What I have been able to establish about Mr Patterson's career is that he was a Procurator Fiscal when awarded the Coronation Medal in 1953. He was awarded the OBE on 10th November 1959 at Buckingham Palace. During the Second World war he served with the RAF.

My understanding is that a Procurator Fiscal in Scotland is similar to a Public Prosecutor. Can any Scottish readers of this post correct me on this point?

I wonder if he was a Legal Officer in the RAF during the war?

If anyone can help me in providing more information about this man I would be very appreciative.

Regards to all,
