Do you have any information on Sarah Waters, mother of Lynda Beatrice Scott? She was living at 66 Tindal Street, Balsall Heath, Birmingham when she died on 23 Sep 1944 aged 77 years. She was married to William Waters born 1864, Gosport, Hampshire. Their father was Timothy Waters born in Great Bedwyn 1837. My Grandmother was given Timothy's medal on the death of Sarah Waters by Lynda Beatrice Scott. Sergeant Timothy Waters was in the Wilts Militia, part of 8 Company, (on H.M.S. Acvtive) Portsmouth Division and awarded the Conspicuous Galantry Medal for 31 January 1974, the action at Amoaful. This was part of Kumasi (Coomassie) in the Ashanti war. Do you know how I might obtain a citation for his award or any further information about him?
