    Hello, I have checked the Medal Index Card for Thomas D Gedge and it does appear that GEDGE is what was written on the original card - he is on a page with other people of the same surname. It may be that there was a mistake when this was written but without a surviving service record or other military documents it is very difficult to prove for certain. Thank you for flagging this up. Best Wishes, Charlotte

    Hello, it is possible that a spelling mistake may have crept into James' Medal Index Card - as you rightly say, CWGC record him as Finnigan, as does the Soldiers died in the Great War database. To ensure that both spellings will take us to the correct page, I will enter his name as 'James Finnagan or Finnigan.' Thanks for your help.

    Hi, if you haven't done so already I would recommend contacting the VC GC Association via their Contact Us facility, as they will be able to confirm whether they hold the copyright to this image and if it may be reproduced.

    Thanks and Best Wishes,

    Hello, before adding new Life Stories we need to ensure that a) the Life Story doesn't exist, and b) there is evidence to support a new Life Story being created. By copying and pasting the link above into our Suggested Stories forum, we can ensure that both of these criteria are met and that Lives of the First World War is as accurate as possible.

    Best Wishes,
    Charlotte

    Hello Jonathan, this option for cause of death has been included as people may have died for various reasons e.g. railway accidents, which this category reflects. If in doubt, you can leave the nature of death blank or 'Unknown'.

    Thanks and Best Wishes,
    Charlotte
