A photo of a medal card for a Percy Price is not proof. I wonder just how many Percy Price's served in WW1.

Also, you need to take into consideration that of all the WW1 records only around 30% survive, thanks to the Luftwaffe in WW2 bombing the building they were held in.

This is in no way critisicism just pointing out some facts. :-)

Thanks Dazed. The medal card was handed down to his family though.
