    Another Medal to Research

    Recommended Posts

    Hi again, everyone!

    I am running into a snag on this group. It is named set of the British War Medal, & the Victory Medal. The imprinted name on both is: "402620 PTE. 1. A.E. SHORTER. R.A.F.".

    Again, any help is greatly appreciated!! :-)

    The snag is there are no or few RAF records online-all the RAF records for WW1 are held @ the museum in Hendon or in Kew

    I can tell you when he joined roughly from one of my books @ home



    Perce He will be one of those in the Army groups as very frequently you see a 14-15 Star with regiment and War and Victory with RAF. Paul

    I may have found your man Shorter, Abraham Earle, Rank AM1 No. F7380; D.S.M. London Gazette p. 6255, 22/6/17 (no citation). If the case Navy man who became RAF in April 1918. Hope it is the case, if so what a find.
