    Nice medal group. I believe you would have to be next of kin or at least a family member to get his service records from the MOD.

    Hard one this... I would presume he was demobbed out of the Suffolk Regiment after the war!!!.. & joined the TA Paras. The award criteria for the Efficiency medal can be found on Wiki!!..I read it couldn't make head or tail lol..Sorry not much help, His rank CQMS would have him working in the stores for one of the companies (100 man fighting unit) so doing some sterling work there or stocking the officers mess with good brandy lol. But you have a cracking group there. I have my eye on a woman's BEM group myself. BEM, War medal & Defence Medal. Cheers Terry.
