Defence Medal Claim

Whilst digging through some of Driver Bacon’s paperwork we found this. This is her original DM7, defence medal claim form. This confirmed the suspicion we had that due to her situation after the war she never got round to claiming her Defence Medal. After various correspondence with the Home Office, I am pleased to say that we have been successful in claiming the medal on her behalf. It is currently in the safe keeping of her daughter until we receive it to keep with her records.DSC05809
