For people wanting to know more about WW1 period British Soldiers and their medals I will research the WW1 Medal Index Cards of your choice for free. If I find any I'll let you know and invite you to make a 'buy it now'. In return I'll send you an A4 size colour copy of the original document.

 

Please note that the amount of information found on Medal Index Cards varies but look at the MIC pictured above and note that there are two sides. Both sides will be copied onto the same sheet for the one payment, just as it appears on the original document.

 

Also note that soldiers may, on the very odd occasion, have more than one MIC. Each one may contain different and interesting information. If this is the case multiple payments will be requested.

 

The minimum information usually found on the front of the cards are their service number(s) (these sometimes changed), rank(s) held, regiment(s) served with, full entitlement of WW1 medals awarded, medal rolls numbers (useful for further research at Kew).

 

Other details that may be included are any other medals or awards, for example, General Service Medals; any entitlement to the Silver War Badge granted to those medically discharged; the theatre of war they first served in; their date of entry in theatre; date of discharge or transfer to the reserves, 'Killed in Action'; and various other useful information.   

 

Sometimes there is an address on the back, or other special entries – see the example.

 

You just don’t know what will be written on an MIC until you look!

 

Copies from The National Archives will cost you £2 - £3.50 each and you only get the front of the cards, so part of the information could be missing. They are also only in black and white, and generally poor quality copies, which sometimes makes the handwriting difficult to read, especially when it's overwritten. See how clear the colour images are in my example.

 

The Admiralty kept different records to the Army and they didn't have MIC's, but I can look up the actual medal rolls for Royal Navy and Royal Naval Division Sailors, and Royal Marines for the same price of £1.80 + p+p.

 

*I can also search for Mercantile Marine/ Merchant Navy registration cards; Victorian Medal Rolls to the Army and the Navy; Victorian Army service records; and SILVER WAR BADGE ROLLS.*

 

To make sure I find the right soldier, sailor or marine for you (out of the very many thousands of others) I need as much information as you can give me. So please ‘ask a question’ or email me at Medals-999@hotmail.co.uk and let me know:

 

  • Their surname and first names or initials
  •  Service number(s)
  •  Rank (eg., Pte, Gnr, Spr, Cpl, Sgt., etc)
  •  Regiment(s) 

 

– The more you can tell me the better!

 

I will then search for free and let you know if I find your soldier’s MIC(s).

 

PLEASE DON'T MAKE A 'BUY IT NOW' UNTIL I CONFIRM I HAVE FOUND YOUR MIC.

 

For more than one MIC multiple ‘buy it now’ payments will be required.

 

Please kindly include your email address in your reply.

 

International enquiries are very welcome.

 

*****

 

I also do research of WW1 Soldiers’ War Records and will let you know as a matter of course if your soldier has anything on record that can be sent to you for a small price. I make no charge for the search and there is no obligation to purchase any records I find. I also do family tree research.

 

I can also search the Medal Rolls for Campaign Medals and Awards up to 1949 (not including WW2).

 

Service records after 1920 (including WW2) are still kept by the MOD and are not available to the general public, so not very much information is available to research. This means I am not able to research WW2 records or medals. 

 

International enquiries are most welcome, and I have already completed research for clients as far afield as Ireland, Belgium, Sweden, Italy, China, Australia, USA and New Zealand!
