Very impressive MaxD.
I think a mod should sticky this to the top of the board for the benefit of others.

This is a good suggestion.

           The vital thing here is that the numbers on a medal record are those a man served overseas with so a man starting in UK with regiment A and transferring to regiment B before he goes overseas will have a regiment B number, clearly not the one he enlisted with.

That describes one of mine. Thanks.
