    9 British Medals

    Recommended Posts

    Hi Gents,

    I wasn´t online for a long time, but I´ve received new British medals.

    4 of them are marked is this from 1 Person, or father and son?

    The number on the WW1 Medals:

    J.62019 H.G. Kimber ORD. R.N.

    The number on the later medals:

    756372 S.SGT. H.G. Kimber R.A.

    I hope someone can help me. I´ll be very happy. :)

    Thanks for reading, best

    Clearly a military family, as neither was a 'hostilities only' enlistment.   Ancestry.com can likely provide some further information, as Kimber is not so common a name as to be unsearchable, with birth year and city or origin known.  Nice grouping!
