Imperial Service Medal GVR Star shaped

Recommended Posts

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.

Brian

London Gazette 16 April 1912 page 391

"Payne Edward, Shipwright, Portsmouth Dockyard"

Nice one, somewhat better than the usual postman.

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.

That is the date in the Edinburgh Gazette. In the London Gazette it is 12 Apr 1912, page 2637.

Whoops forget to filter Edinburgh Gazette out. It will have to have an Independence referendum. Brian well done a nice purchase.

Hi,

I don't know if this is of any help but the website Naval-History.Net also has a listing of Imperial Service Medals and imperial Service orders from the London Gazette. I was researching an ISM and simply typed in  'Imperial Service Medal' in their search engine on the site and I found the London Gazette listings.

BTW the whole site looks excellent.

All the best,

David Vivian
