Missing Campaign Medal MIC for an MM Recipient (France)
I have a MM MIC and a supporting LG entry for 301860 Pte T. Brown of 2/5th Lancashire Fusiliers. Details now at:
So far so good ……. until I turned up a total blank for a MIC for his Campaign Medals using all sorts of combinations of 301860. As he was awarded the MM for Bravery in "France" (MM MIC) I (dangerously perhaps) assume he would at least be entitled to BWM and BVM? Anyone come across this before? Regards and thanks. Ian.
Anonymous - you amaze me. We all know that records are littered with tiny errors but it takes real skill to actually find them. This link is more than "highly likely" and I have connected it with an appropriate explanation/caution to future researchers pending that "missing link" actually turning up. Many thanks - it's been an education!
possibly a typo in the gazette see https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/557501 if the numbering of the 2/5th LF was usually 201*** rather than 301*** then that's the likely answer.
