    Simple answer for single Imperial awards is no, because these awards are not named.
    Higher ranking Officer medal/ribbon bars provide a much better chance for ID.

    There are Imperial award certificates, but unless you have these along with
    the original medals, it is pretty impossible. Also, anyone could put a medal
    and a certificate together.........
    Regards,

    John, as walkwolf says, very difficult if not impossible, unless you are lucky enough to recieve with the medals some form of provanence, i.e. award certificates, pay or service books or you obtain them from a veterans family, if that is the case document the family name and any previous history. Good luck.
    Prost ! Steve.
