No, downloaded the application form, sent copy of medal card.  I assume as he was KIA in 1915 battle of Loos that was sufficient.

Sorry if this is duplicating, i am having trouble replying to mails.
Email:dbs-medals@mod.uk

Ask them for the form and they will send the attachment

Send application by recorded delivery as they did not receive my first application.

Thanks to encouragement from JackTT, I finally took the plunge and completed the forms to claim my wife's great grandfather's medals which were originally unclaimed , one week later,confirmation of a successful application. I'll have to wait a few months for the newly minted medals, but I'm as happy as Larry. Thank you Jack.
