Trying to reunite Medal with family
« on: Sunday 16 June 19 23:09 BST (UK) »
I have been having a clearout and found a medal that I think I picked up at a car boot sale or somewhere about 20 years ago that I meant to research but most stuff wasnít online then

Anyway itís a WW2 Medal with Palestine 1945-1948 bar on it it has the name H Dearden and the number T 14472826 round the edge and I have found the medal card entry on ancestry but not sure where to go from here as it simply says H Dearden on the card entry

Have you tried looking for a matching family tree on Ancestry. Maybe it would be a good idea to post a message on the Armed Forces Board too.
Good Luck.
