Girl Guide......thanks.

I was aware of this BUT................I would like to find the London Gazette or some other official record of the MBE and, as yet, cannot find any.

I lived in Ardwick, Manchester in the early 1960s as a small child and much travelling of the world has now led me to want to know more about my roots. Carter, Beckwith, Connolly, Heron and Kelly are all names that form part of my family tree.

I found her name here

LUND, Dora, Nursing Sister, QARNNSR, RRC [31099]

from https://www.naval-history.net/WW1NavyBritishLG-Royal_Navy_Medals-Index2.htm

About a couple of inches down from the top of the page in a long list of names in alphabetical order

I can't see when she received it.  The MBE medal was dated 1917 so she may have received it then.

The link in reply 10 is for the same award as shown in reply 11. Hope that makes sense.
31099 after her name leads to the edition of the Gazette with the Royal Red Cross award.

Thanks,

I have seen the entries for the ARRC award.
The MBE is eluding me. Assuming the auction house read the hallmark correctly as 1917 that would generally mean the award was given no more than a few years on from that date. I have checked the Handbook of the British Empire with all entries until 1921 and there is no sign. The LG database is not 100% correct but this is my first failure to locate.

I am baffled by the fact that I keep seeing the Red Cross award but can't see her listed under the heading of an MBE award.

Was the Red Cross one her MBE?  Not well up on how these awards are done when it comes to military and nursing.

As the medal was dated 1917 I assumed she had received it either on or after that date.

If she got an MBE it would have been in the London Gazette. They posted civil and military.
We only have the families recollection for this and stories get blurred Perhaps they knew she got an award but mixed it up with the ARRC. But where does the MBE that sold come into all of this? Its of the right era as she was nursing in WW1 and afterwards. It was unlikely just to be found in the house.

Its an interesting one with a number of different possibilities.

You could consider contacting the auction house and ask them if it was a family member who put the medal up for auction.  I was trying to find out when she died but wasn't getting anywhere.
