    It's possible the medals had the wrong details and were returned. If they aren't stamped with R they aren't replacements as in originals being lost or stolen.

    According to the BWM/VM medal roll he re - transferred to RFA as Gnr. from M.F.P. 23/7/20.

    He also served in the Royal Horse Artillery.

    Thanks guys. Tony, the first thing I look for on medals is the R for replacement, and these don't have it. I hadn't thought about errors on the medals so thanks for that. I have not had a chance to look at his medal roll yet either, didn't knno he served in RHA also. Cheers.

    Nice group mate!
    I would also safely say that these were returned as Tony says. Ive seen a few groups and pairs like this over the years.
    If there is no R, i wouldnt worry about it.
    Great piece of history!
