Help Please to search The London Gazette
« on: Wednesday 10 October 18 15:38 BST (UK) »
I'm getting nowhere with a search in the London Gazette and wondered whether anyone could help me please.

I'm searching for the citation for Archibald GARRETT a Sergeant in the Royal Garrison Artillery, Regimental No. 75533, who was awarded the Meritorious Service Medal, listed in the Peace Gazette, which I understand was dated 3rd June 1919. 

I have all the information but I cannot make the search work, whatever criteria I use! The date filters are faulty anyway, but I have managed to find the correct Issue number (I think) - 31390.

I am willing to believe it's just me being useless!  :-[

Thanks for any help or advice anyone can give.

Hi Philip

That's great!  Thank you so much.

I thought it might be me not doing something right, and it obviously was!
