Thanks so much for the information. I need to know how can I obtain his medal and ribbons. I'm not even sure if he accepted them or not. I do know that my father was suppose to get his fathers guns after my father was old enough, but he was never given them. My grandfather was killed in the caol mines in 1947 when my father was 11 years of age. My father died in July of Cancer and I was wanting to find out as much informaiton on his father before he died, but it was not possible. Thanks again.
