Hello again Kelvyn,
I will send you George's medal card off list in a minute or two.
George served with the Royal Army Medical Corps and is recorded as a Sjt.
who served in France from 23.11.15. He received a commission on 17.10.17 and
transferred to the South Lancs Reg. and later to the RAF.
Some records/letters from 1921 may still exist in Preston.
