The medal to F Kerruish is interesting.

He is listed on the Steam Road Transport roll (WO100/155p104) with a note saying the medal was issued to RE Records 30 October 1907.



I would have expected the medal to be named to the SRT but it is named to the REs but with no rank.

Going through the roll for the SRT in WO100/155, I think there were 111 unique names. Based on the F Kerruish example posted yesterday, I have removed 2 names of medals that were probably named to the RE rather than SRT. 45 of the medals were returned leaving a net issue of 66.

I have so far identified 6 as being extant but I am sure there are more. If you know of more, please let me know and I will update this list.

While no rank is given, some of the later pages of the roll do give a role (either engine driver, chief engineer or OC).

There is one possible duplicate, F Davis.
