  1. so thomas warrington was born in Luton, Bedfordshire, England in 1889.the 1901 census has him as a scholar with the 1911 census has him as a medical student,.iv had a quick look on the London Gazette and it has him being announced as a Lt on the 21st april 1914 with the rank being confirmed on the 16 june 1914.i cant find any other entries but the LG is a nightmare to use so il give it a try later! he was there with the BEF so its a nice group to a officer who was there at the very start of the war!cant see on the medal car dif he was entilted to the clasp ut theres a good change he was!

    i couldnt find a date of death but after looking on the Uk medical register,hes not listed after 1955 so either he retired or was deceased after this year! iv posted a pic of his medal index card as the one you got off the national archive is probably black and white and i dont think its has a scan of the back! if i find any more info il post it for you!!

    (there id say is at least 2 more LG entries and il try and find them for you to!)

  2. as a RAMC collector iv seen them go from anything from 60 sterling to 300+ depending whats on it but an average trio with 1915 star would be about 80-115 also check to see if the service paper survived as that will effect the value as well!!they show up on ebay but the buy it now ones normally are over what you should pay!just keep an eye out and youl pick one up no problem!

  3. picked up two ribbon bars on ebay there the other day but was thinking for the first one is it possible?iv not got it yet and not seen the back but it was cheap so i took a chance on it! just wondering is the ribbon combo possible? best i can figure is that this person served in china then South Africa then left the service and went into the civil service or something like that and got a MBE post 1936 or do you reckon its a made up?any help would be great!!!:)
