I collect medals based on the item rather than the history but want to do research on the ones I have, for example I have a mercantile marine war pair to Thomas Kinniburgh with HM Submarines cap tally but can find no info on it. What is the best way to research my medals?

 

Thanks guys.

Hello and welcome to the Forum,

Nice pair of Medals for Great War service you have there, of course we have no way of knowing if the Cap Tally is related to the medals, I assume you obtained them together?

The National Archives have a record for one Thomas B Kinniburgh which may be your Man and he saw service with the Merchant Navy during the conflict. He is shown as born in Cadder around 1864.

The NA are not free and the link below will allow you to purchase what they have.http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/D8044830

Good luck and will update you should I find anything else.

Regards Simon

Hi Simon,

Thank you for the welcome, looks a great forum.

Thanks for your help and getting back to me.

Yes, the medals and cap tally came together, really nice condition

I found a useful resource:

HTTP://crewlists.rmg.co.UK

There is a reference to j b Kinniburgh from Cadder who served on Alcinous (Laconia before that), perhaps family member.

 

Best regards,

 

J

I would imagine there must be a Family link between the two men, a fairly uncommon name and both shown born in the same place.

Couldn't access the link above so will take a look when I can.

Should be fairly straight forward to research the Ship too.

Good luck with the ongoing research and hopefully you'll find a link to the Submarine Service.

Simon
