Good Morning Everyone.....

I just picked up the following King's Medal......
He is not listed in FMP which I subscribe to.......
Is he on Ancestry or does anyone have a record for this regiment.....
Would like to find out what QSA bars he would have been entitled to.......

Mike

3261 CORPORAL M. CADIGAN, ROYAL MUNSTER FUSILIERS

Cadigan is clearly shown in WO100/208 as a Lance Corporal serving in the Munster's 3rd Militia Battalion, his QSA had the usual three clasps that was the norm for his battalion.

Good Morning Frank......

The KSA is a much maligned medal as people will not buy them without the Queen's in a lot of cases and it looked so lonely in an antiques stores case.......
Also it cost me less than 20 Pounds in trade......

Okay Mike, just wondered, it's certainly worth rather more than twenty quid!
I couldn't see any obvious papers for him, although it does not mean they don't exist.
