Product description

This unique approach to researching medals focuses upon tracing individuals and actions through the medal roll. Ranging from Java to New Orleans, Copenhagen to Egypt, it explores both campaign and commemorative medals to show how the awards system helps research into an ancestor, regiment, medal or campaign. Structured geographically for ease of use, the guide draws together information from the National Archives and the India Office records at the British Library. It advises on the best online access and places to visit, as well as strategies for extending research into sources such as the census and the War Diaries. Combining detailed descriptions far fuller than those in online catalogues with an insider s knowledge on imminent record releases, this is the perfect, time-saving tool for family historians, military enthusiasts and collectors alike.
