Advertise your medal wants on this British Army Ancestors Find-a-Medal page. Read the information on the right-hand side panel to see how this service works. This British Army Ancestors website is all about putting faces to names, but there also appears to be demand for a medal-tracing service. This Find-a-Medal page meets that need.
BRITISH ARMY MEDALS SOUGHT
It only costs £25 to place a line advertisement on this page. Please read the instructions on the side panel on the right and then drop a line to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Do note that placing a Medals Sought request is no guarantee of success.
To improve your chances of success, why not super-charge your search by also publishing your requirements on my British Army Medals blog? See below for more details. Remember, if it’s photos you are looking for and you have already checked this site, why not try the Find-a-Photo service?
British Army Ancestors now offers a low-cost medal-finding service - Find-a-Medal - where you tell me who you are looking for and I publish the details here on the Find-a-Medal page. The idea is that the internet search engines do the rest. Here's how it works.
I publish key details on the main Find-a-Medal page. Think of it as a Medals Wanted advert which is exactly what it is. The only difference is that this advert is published in perpetuity. You pay a one-time fee and it sits on the British Army Ancestors Find-a-Medal page while the internet search engine 'crawlers' and 'robots' do their thing. I know from personal experience that with a good fortune, some medals do turn up.
Here's how the Medals Wanted service works.
1. You send me the details of the medals you are looking for:the soldier's full name, rank, regiment, regimental number (if applicable), birth and death details (if known); medal entitlement if known. Send to me at email@example.com
2. I will publish this information on the British Army Ancestors Find-a-Medal page along with a reference number which I will maintain in a separate database.
3. Your email address and personal details will not be shared or published elsewhere.
4. The one-time fee to publish this information on this Find-a-Medal page on your behalf is £25. If you want to increase your chances of finding that elusive medal or medal group you may also choose to publish your wants on my British Army Medals blog. See, for example, this post about Medals Wanted for Lt David Radcliffe. He's the officer pictured above.
