I would agree it is a watermark as I have looked at other medal cards


Maurice Report 6 Feb 2014 12:31

Please excuse the late reply. Yes that is the medal card Glitter.

I am beginning to think it may be just a watermark.

Thank you for your reply.

Just to clarify that this is WW1 as his medal card is on Ancestry

The medal roll of Sidney W Challis South Wales Borderers service no 20226
shows in the remarks column what appears to be a picture of a leaf.

It is not an Oak leaf which could be connected to being mentioned in dispatches.
I am hoping someone has come across this before and could offer an explaination.

My internet at the moment keeps going down, so please excuse me if i do not answer any replies promptly.
Thank you for any assistance.
