Yesterday on attending a Swap meeting of my collecting club I was well pleased to obtain an 1887 Met Jubilee medal and bar 1897, albeit not in the best of condition, it has at some time been heavily stained and someone has cleaned it, with judging from the result, a scouring pad !!! leaving a scratched surface on the obverse. I was also well pleased to obtain access to a book listing the men entitled to the medals who joined 1879 and later. I was doomed to disappointment, on eagerly searching for my man : - PC J.Scott "K" Division alas he does not appear presumably having joined prior to 1879.

Can anyone assist with information on this mans service

Yes you are correct - he joined 03/03/1873

The man was John Scott Warrant Number 56582 and as stated above joined 03/03/1873 as a PC in K Div (Bow) and retired as a PC still in K Div 02/05/1898

Another one to add to the correction list

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
