Returning 14--18 Medal.

#1
Hi,
Not really sure if this is the right forum, but if not could a mod please select correct one.

My daughter in law has given me a WW1 campaign medal that her mother found on a street in Bangor, NI, some forty years ago, and was wondering if there is any way it could be returned to the original recipient`s relatives, or even if there is a chance of contacting them.
The medal is in a pretty poor state with the attachment bracket missing.However the name is clear, but is a bit strange in that it refers to a "Corporal" in the RA, where I thought the rank was "Bombardier".
The name on the circumference reads -- "22750 CPL P. HURLEY. R. A."


I know there were millions of these medals issued, but I would like to return it to its rightful place if possible, so any help or advice will be gratefully received.

Thanks,

Harry.
