Medal Card Abbreviations

4 posts in this topic

Hi, does the hand-written piece across the centre of the card relate to my Father's BWM being returned on 6/5/38?

and what does CRV B42 ans NW/5/38586 mean, would they state the reason for the return. 20 years after the end of WW1 seems a long time to wait to return a medal.

CRV means Certified Receipt Voucher, then the reference

I suspect, and its speculation, one of the medals (BWM) was inscribed incorrectly, (probably the Regiment ) and when noticed returned for amendment I guess he, or his relatives wanted them all to show the same regiment but as you say they waited long enough!

btw looked at back of card on Ancestry - blank so no help there!

There's no guarantee that the reference to 6/5/38 is actually a date.

Thanks Ken and M, his Victory medal is inscribed with the Cameron Highlanders, the 15 Star I don't have and nor does any other member of the family as far as I am aware, but thanks anyway.
