What is British Victory Medal Naming meaning?

Recommended Posts

I have bought a medal group in this afternoon.

But I do not know what is medal's Naming meaning?

Two medals have the same Naming which show: J. 42624 P. MACFARLANE. A. B. R. N.

I do not know what is that meaning. It is an officer or an Solider? How Can I find them information.

Thank you!!!

Thank you very much Paul.

It is A.B means Able Bodied Seaman? What is "J" meaning in the initial.

You can download his service record at the Brit national archives for a few bucks http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/D6941554

It might not be exciting, date of discharge and ships served on etc. but knowing the ships will give a clue to any sea battles or patrols he took part in.

Thank you so much Tony. I will have a check. That's amazing!!!
