Military Medal holders.
« on: Tuesday 13 April 21 08:07 BST (UK) »
Was it a regular occurrence for holders of the Military Medal to be given  Military style Funeral whenever they died?

The short answer is no.
It was & still is for the family to decide what sort of funeral an ex soldier receives.
It would be more likely if the soldier died in service but that would be a military service
as opposed to a military "style" service which usually involves the British Legion.
