Thanks timberman, I had that, he was the one not listed on ancestry MICs.
I was hoping something on the remaining medal cards would give a clue who went to Egypt.

Could someone please look and read medal card 6 and 7. I was hoping Egypt may be obvious to someone looking at these!

This is were I feel useless. Chocolate Fireguard comes to mind. I wonder if there is a list of of the 1/10 Bn. My granddad was in that and went to Egypt and Gallipoli. If I have read his service record correctly. Thanks for your help timberman.
best wishes
