Subject: [nz] British Empire Medal awarded 1944?
Date: Mon, 21 Jul 2008 15:22:04 -0600
I'm hoping someone can help me with this. I received the following
information and I have been unable to confirm it. I can't seem to find it on
the London Gazette for dates indicated (or any other). Would like to follow
up and find more information/confirm this. Can anyone help.
I live in Canada and have limited NZ resources to cal on.
