Private #2482 Peter Starkey (variations: Starkie, Sterkey, Sharkey) of the 41st Regiment was awarded the Crimea War Medal (clasps Alma, Inkermann and Sebastopol) recorded in WO100-29 and the Turkish Crimea Medal.
However, his WO97 Chelsea Pension Discharge (page 1) records that he also received the French Legion of Honor. I have searched the Wikipedia list of recipients as well as the London Gazette search engine (which one of your members described as capricious!). Just in case the Army Clerk confused it with the French Military Medal, I checked the recipients of that in L L Gordon's "British Badges & Medals" and he was not recorded there either.
I cannot find Private Starkey's name anywhere associated with this medal anywhere. As I have been known to miss the obvious, has anyone got any suggestions. I have attached a screen shot excerpt of WO97 p.1 with the relevant entry.
