Medal Card Deciphering

They are Medal Roll references. You'll notice that one column is headed "Roll", and the other is "page".

It's so you can then track down the unit medal rolls for those medals at the NA/PRO.

The "d" against the British War Medal entry almost certainly stands for "ditto".

If you get hold of Army Service Records of the First World War by Fowler, Spencer & Tamblin, PRO Publications, 1997, ISBN 1-873162-55-3, there is a small guide on how to use them.
