Merchant navy WW1 medal cards online

Over 155,000 cards recording the award of campaign medals to merchant seamen in the First World War are now available on DocumentsOnline. These record the award of the British War Medal and the Mercantile Marine Medal. The cards are from the catalogue reference BT 351 (BT 351/1/1 and BT 351/1/2).

For more see www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/documentsonline/merchant-seamens-medals.asp

MT 9/1404 Silver War Badges awarded to First World War merchant seamen should also be added later today.
