Tracing medals - advice

Discussion in 'Military History and Militaria' started by Born_to_hunt_Made_to_work, Jan 21, 2007.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Wonder if anyone can help with a bit of advice for a colleague - he's trying to trace his graet grandfatehr's medals, or at least which ones he was entitled to: he's got a name and a capbadge, but he's not sure where to go to find the details. Can anyone point him in the right direction of a site / register?
    Thanks tons in advance.
  2. wouldn't a polaroid be better than tracing them? ;)
  3. Mike,
    Very many thanks - 1 x homesick recruit now given a task that will stretch but not overwhelm him, and remind him that he's not the first of his family to have a **** time in greens :thumright:
