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
