Help needed- Medal research

#1
My wife's father died recently. We know he had a distinguished military career including service in Palestine and Malaya and time spent attached to 22. Unfortunately, we cannot find his medals. We know he had to have had some and I would like to get a set of replicas made up for my wife. Problem is how do I find out what he would have had?

Can anyone suggest a way of finding out what medals an individual was entitled to wear.

I have his name and service number and some, undoubtedly incomplete, details of his service.

He was discharged (voluntary) in the sixties so JPA isnt going to be any help!

You will need a copy of his death cert and apply as next of kin. .
I wrote off to the Medal Office to get my Grandads medals, as he'd not signed for them after the war. They were very helpful, and sent me his medals.

I didn't need proof of my Grandads death.
