The medals have been issued to the family, after proving the medals were returned unclaimed. The medal office could not have been more helpful.

Would that be just for medals returned? My Grandfather's medals were stolen as part of a burglary during the 1930's so I believe, it would be good if I could have copies.

I understand this scheme only applies where the original medals were returned due to not being able to deliver them to the intended recipient (i.e. the soldier or next-of-kin).
