Been reading your post with interest. My aunt has a three set that include the defence medal and the victory medal from her husband who served in the RA and the North Staff's. Subsequently he worked for the mayor of the city of London and was awarded freedom of the city. He also has a 1977 qjm which seemed unusual. She only has the minatures that he wore on his dinner jacket for many years. He died 15 years ago. She is 88 and we want to replace his minatures with a new set of originals in time for remembrance day. She always attends but never with Joes medals.
His name is Joseph Radford. Did the qjm have the name of the recipient on the rim and do you know how it would have appeared. Name or initials and name.
I understand this is not a big medal but it is important to her and I would appreciate your advice.
Very best regards
Sorry for the late reply but life and work kept distracting me!I had a look on the roll and there is a joseph Rafford on the 77 roll and it has him down as a
Assistance public trustee.
Public trustee office
The medal itself as far as I aware isn't named so that will help of your looking to get a full sizeine (minitures are always unnamed (
Hoped this helps and if you need any more help let me know!
Also sorry I had his name down on my last reply as as rafford its joseph radford
