PTE 10234 J.W.White + SWB Manc. R
« on: January 24, 2009, 09:53:55 PM »
Some time ago I was given a BWM and VM to Pte 10234 J.W.White.
I did get some information about him from, he was wounded and discharge on the 16-2-1916.
I had the medals given to me by a friend. The other week he gave me a SWB which I just put in a box with two others I have,later I thought maybe it could have been issued to J.W.White.
Is it possible to find the number of J.W.White's SWB.

The badges I have are numbered 380749 B327091 417549.

Hi Zephyr4

and welcome to the forum

it's possible to find the owner of a SWB but it does involve some research

have you checked the medal index cards to see if JW was awarded a swb?

cheers

I could not find his mic,I was told he should have had a 14-15 star.
The person who gave me the medals said John lost a leg(or both)so I thought he would have been issued the swb.

I did know he lived in Disley but I did not have his address so thanks for that Mack.
