Richard Francis Lobley (Service No: 235322)

Richard died in 1917, and is buried at Tyne Cot. His Medal Index Card and Medal Roll confirm that he served with the 8th York and Lancaster (235322) and the Northumberland Fusiliers (6283). His grandson has inherited Richard's Memorial Plaque and his campaign medals. The campaign medals have a spelling error on the rim inscription, which has always be recognised. (Labley instead of Lobley), however the regiment inscribed on the rim is the Middx Regiment, Service Number: 14455, but there's no record of him serving with this Regiment. Do you think there was a mix up in the production of Richard's medals?!

    Thanks for you for your comments and taking time to look up. Yes it looks as though Richard's next of kin was given Reuben's medals!
