The Royal Scots Regimental badge


Posted on 29 Mar 2015 by Robert Holland

I have come across some medals when my stepfather died. They are not hi and I dont know how he had them. There are three. 1. I beleive its a 1914 - 1918 campaign medal enscribed 7347 Pte J McCcormack R.Scots 2. I think its a 1914 - 18 Star with rosette and bar marked 5th Aug - 22nd Nov 1914 (marked as above) 3. I also have a George V1 Medal with his name for faithful service in the special constabulary. I would be interested if I could find out anything how he came to have them and with the possibility of re-uniting them with the appropriate family if possible
