Check of Medal Entitlements with a view to applying for them

Currently waiting for a response from Ministry of Defence, they should respond promptly and normally no later than (details).

Dear Ministry of Defence,

I request details of my deceased grandfather’s medal entitlements with a view to claiming them, if they are available. I am his only surviving male heir.

Reference :
John Brindle DOB 21/2/21. Date of death 3/01/85
Army Service Number 14938108 (23669325)

Please could you confirm :

A - which medals my grandfather was awarded during his service in Burma and at home?
B - whether I am able to claim these medals as we do not have them in the family and believe they were never claimed.

Yours faithfully,

David Brindle on behalf of Defence Business Services Secretariat, Ministry of Defence
