Dear Ministry of Defence,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Ministry of Defence's handling of my FOI request 'Wider Service Medal'.

Information regarding this medal has been discussed publicly by a member of government already, and has been openly referenced. Therefore I would expect that at the very least some information regarding it would be released via this FOI.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/w...

Yours faithfully,

Tom Doubleday
