I was surprised not to find Frank listed on your name search. I attach his brief military CV.

Richard...…

You will see in the picture of his medal group a QSA with two bars, and in his obit they say that he had two but his FMP record says that he should have three missing the South Africa 1901..... To me it looks like he took a KSA and added his one bar onto it as I do not think that he would be entitled to it..... Would love to see the naming on it..... Would have to see his full service documents...…

Many thanks Mike. This is a replica miniatures set I had made up in UK by a medals professional for Frank's granddaughter (my wife - see photo and details I received attached). Sadly no family member even remembered seeing the originals so I posted on a "lost medals" site some years ago but no luck. Maybe your members can help? Please have a close look at the photo and the details I was sent and recommend any changes.
Many thanks:
Richard
