    Looks like a good pick up. Interesting that he was not entitled to any awards/medals for his service. I also notice he was with the MGC Cavalry and had served with the XXth Hussars.

    Bargain for a quid mate, and glad to help with the flipping, it makes it easier to read them.

    That makes more sense for him to have the War and Victory medals. Great to see the extra info Tom, well done for posting it.
