Firstly a quick introduction. My name is Trish, I live in Leicester and this is my first foray into the world of historical medals and battles. A collector friend of mine, has given me a number of medal to research and I must admit that to date, I have been having a whale of a time!
One of the medals I am researching is an Afghanistan 1878-79-80 medal to:-
5812 Gunner S Moore - 5/8th BDE, Royal Artillery.
The note that came with it states that he died at Quetta on 28 November 1880
I have been on the National Archives, and found the reference WO 100/54, and have asked for a quotation for a copy of the record, but I must admit that I am loathe to wait 10 days the specify for a quotation and then have to wait again. I know this is not good for research but this is me - sorry!
My question is can anyone help with the verification that he was entitled to this medal and also, if anyone can shed any light on how he died.
If I am incorrect in posting this here, then I apologise and await censure
, seriously, just point me in the right direction...
