Thank you so much, sounds like this could be our man, we don't have any medals unfortunately. I'll see what else I can find and post any results.

"The Battle of Waterloo" - ho ho!

There's a possibility in the medal rolls: Albert Graham 26881 served with 13th Kings Liverpool Regiment, and then the 2nd. Embarked for France 6/12/1915. He's also on the India Medal roll, with a clasp for the Afghanistan campaign in 1919. Curiously Ancestry has transcribed that one as "Battle of Waterloo" 1815 !
I was able to download a digital copy of Albert's Medal card from the National Archives for free. Yay!

In case you're not aware (apologies if you are) he first went overseas with the 13/KLR
where he received his wounds.
They were already in France when he was posted to them as his 14/15 Star roll has
an entry date of Dec. 1915. 13/KLR went in Sept. 1915.
He probably transferred to the 2nd. Btn. after recovering from his wounds.
This is what the LLT says:
13th (Service) Battalion
Formed at Seaforth in September 1914 as part of K3 and attached as Army Troops to 25th Division.
February 1915 : transferred to 76th Brigade in same Division.
27 September 1915 : landed at Le Havre.
15 October 1915 : transferred with Brigade to 3rd Division.
23 October 1915 : transferred to 8th Brigade in same Division.
4 April 1916 : transferred to 9th Brigade in same Division.


2nd Battalion
August 1914 : in Peshawar in India. Part of 1st (Peshawar) Brigade, 1st (Peshawar) Division of Indian Army. Remained in India throughout the war. Moved to 10th Brigade in 4th (Quetta) Division December 1917.
