    If you join the British Medal Forum and ask a few pertinent questions you may get the answers you require. No problems in joining and there is no fee.

    I have the same issue with my grandfathers WWl medals. When he died and my grandmother remarried, her new husband sold them for money to buy drink. There is a website called www.medalsgonemissing.com You can advertise on here for missing medals and it would appear that they have reunited quite a few people with missing family medals. I think it was about 3.00 per year to post the advert (sorry no pound sign on my usa computer).

    Hope this helps.

    Genealogy……. It’s not the size of the tree that matters, It’s the quality of the nuts you find on there

    Update I have just had confirmation today that my advert for my Uncle's medals has been listed on the website.

    The site owner suggests that they are listed as lost in case nervous collectors panic at the use of the word stolen if the medals are now in the hands of a “nervous” collector, then they may become too paranoid to contact us and the medals may go “underground”.

    Cheers
    Guy
    A forum is a place where ideas & views can be exchanged
    I read what others write & add my view or idea based on a lifetime of research
    Some people agree with me some disagree that is their prerogative & valued
    If I add a previous posting it is to remind forum users of the post I am replying to
    If I am addressing a particular person I will address them by name
    If not I am making a general comment to no one in particular.
