Hi Anthony
No recipient with surname Shone on the Mitchell copy of the CapeGSM Issue Register: medal obviously "self-awarded"

It would still be nice to know if there is any mention of him in records of , or relating to , the HNC
If he self-awarded the CGSM , was there any basis or foundation for so doing ?
His renamed QSA does seem to be based on a possible entitlement

Matseb,

There are 14 medals to the HNC, all to officers as would be expected. It could be that he served with them for only a short period and thus was not awarded a medal? The reasons could include illness, not being fit to be a soldier or transgressing an Army regulation. It would be unusual to do this twice though.

Thank you David for the info.
Is this based on the medal roll or on original / contemporary records of officers of the unit ?
