Yes, they just have his name, no number. Thank you For your help. I've subscribed to FindMyPast.

It seems like the owner of the medals (1880/1878) joined the army in 1897. His address is the right road. Lovely description of him, he sounds like a pirate! Black hair and pierced ears!

He was Mercantile Marine Reserve and the medals are the 1914-15 Star, British War Medal and Victory Medal, hence my expectation that they would have his number, he didn't get a Mercantile Marine Medal.

Are you now confident of which one is your man because it may be worth now seeking to find more records of his MMR time.

Sorry for the disappearing act MaxD.  I'm pretty sure I know which one he is.  I'll be looking more at this family when the schools go back  :)

Thank you.
