This is a Canadian World War 1 medal group which includes the Military Medal(MM), 1914-18 General Service(War) medal and the 1914-19 Victory medal. The medals were awarded and named to T. (Thomas Francis Russell) Edwards. Edwards enlisted as a private in Lethbridge Alberta in September 1915. He served with the 82nd Calgary Highlanders(#160337) until March 3 at which time he was released to accept a posting with the 91st Elgin Regiment(#190076) on March 16th, 1916. He sailed for Britain on June 29th, 1916. He was promoted to Sergeant on July 5th, 1916. On December 3rd, 1917, he was transferred to the 58th Overseas battalion and sailed for France on the same day. He stayed in France until August 31st, 1918 at which time he went back to England to accept a commission for promotion to Lieutenant. There is no indication of when the Military Medal was awarded but given the Battalion’s location and Edwards timing in France, it may have been at the Battle of Amiens in August of 1918. The award is listed in the London Gazette 31173 dated February 11, 1919. The medals are named as such, you will note that the last 2 medals have the last name spelled incorrectly.
