the National Archives organise their [our] records in "pieces" - each piece has a reference code and a title. "Piece Hampton D to Holland E" is the title of that piece and it means it contains all of the records [medal cards in this instance] relating to men whose names in alphabetical order run from D. Hampton to E. Holland. If you are looking for David Hampton - his card would be in there - if you were looking for Albert Hampton it wouldn't - it would be in the piece immediately preceding.

Hope that helps,

Many thanks for that jds1949. My brain was on a mind set of operations that perhaps had dealings within Europe during WW1. ;)
