    I assume he was a sapper? with the Royal Engineers and did not serve abroad during the war. A good pick up as the TA medals are getting more pricey all the time.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    By any info, I assume you mean any info on the medals, on the man and anything else?

    As Jerry said, his rank was Sapper. His number, 2075290, is a Royal Engineers number, so he enlisted with that corps, and according to the inscription on the medal, was still with them at the time he got it.

    The first two medals are the 1939-45 Star and War Medal 1939-1945 and, again as Jerry says, would suggest he didn't serve outside the UK. As he didn't qualify for the Defence Medal, it is likely he served for less than 3 years during the war.

    The third medal is the Efficiency Medal 1930, awarded for 12 years continuous service in the Territorial Army (in this case as it has TERRITORIAL on the suspension).
