Both medals and family research are very popular topics here on the Victorian Wars Forum. However we have noticed requests for help in research are being posted in multiple sub-forums making it harder for members to spot suchs threads and offer assistance. Can I therefore bring to members attention the following suggestion?
If you are posting queries regarding research on recipients of campaign medals you have in your collection or family ancestors can you please ensure you post these in the dedicated "Researching Individual Soldiers & Sailors" sub-forum? This will enable those who are able to help you to find your posts more easily and it will also help avoid clogging up the "Wars & Campaigns" sub-forums which are intended to discuss the actual campaigns themselves.
As regards to campaign medals please do note that we have a "Uniforms, Insignia & Medals" sub-forum for general discussions. Again could you post general medal related questions (i.e. questions about the medal itself rather than the recipient) here for the same reasons stated above. Please also be aware that our friends over on the British Medal Forum will be able to help on more indepth or specialist medal related queries.
Thanks for your help folks
