Hi, one of my family members has come across this medal. We think it is my great grandads as he seems to be the logical one to pick but don’t know how to go about finding out as there and no names or service number on it.
Would appreciate any information anyone has about these medals.

Thank you in advance

Kerry

Hello Kerry, 

I'm so happy you found your way to the Community! Hopefully someone here will be able to tell you more about your great grandfather's medal, and if you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch. :)

In addition, you could also try to reach out to the Military Archives

Warm regards,

Melin

Hi Kerry,
I had a look online and came across the following links, which will hopefully give you some more information - 
http://www.theeasterrising.eu/240_WorldWarTwo/ww2.htm (Your medal seems to be the first one on the list)
http://www.irishmedals.ie/WW2-Emergency-Medals.php
http://hmc2.pagesperso-orange.fr/en/ww2/39ireland.html

Please also take a look on page 23 of the attached PDF. The file is pretty large, so might take some time to download.

I hope this helps. Please come back to us if you have any other questions.
