    Thanks. Sounds a very dangerous job and could be how he died.

    Qualified in bombing means being taught all aspects of throwing/safe handling of hand grenades, on the British side refers to Mills bombs. Only a select number of men

    per unit were qualified for this activity.

    What are the names on the medals? The photos are very small. Unlike WW2 medals, which were minted en masse without names, WW1 medals had names and individual serial numbers for the soldiers in question.

    I've been trying to find 'death pennies' for a couple of my grandfather's brothers, but sadly to no avail so far.
